We booked this trip last minute. We wanted a sunset cruise and booked this one through the hotel concierge which we don't usually do. We were told that this was a sunset cruise with snacks served (pupu's) and we'd leave at 6pm and be back in time to walk down town to see the fireworks at 8_pm. Wrong - but... More

On the way back, the captain enticed a family of spinner dolphins to play with the sailboat and we even saw whales. The crew and this... More

Thuroughly enjoyed our sunset cruise. The captain altered his route so that we could see whales that were breaching nearby. A beautiful ship excellent crew and a lovely evening to see Diamond Head and Honolulu light up at sunset.

we went on the morning cruise. It was cloudy so i didn't think to put on sunscreen, but 2 hours with the sun reflecting off the water makes a bad burn. We saw turtles. Breakfast was can drinks and chips. Staff was freindly. I was worried about having to go to the bathroom as it is somewhere under where we... More

I enjoyed ever moment. We were lucky enough to see several whales breach the water. The boat was clean and had plenty of room for everyone. No complaints.

We were on our honeymoon and had a wonderful sail with this crew. They got us in last minute after another tour had not shown up and were excellent and accommodating.

Great afternoon for sailing. Gave a whole different view of Waikiki. Took great photos of the city. Only marine life seen was a turtle. No whales, dolphins or other fish. Will try do the Snorkel the bay / cruise combo next time. Trip was too short (maybe 3hrs).

This is one of the best tours we had at Oahu. We did not see whales but saw very interesting flying fish. Kids loved the trip. Had a lot of fun on board. If anything, the sail trip is somewhat short, two hours.
