The afternoon cruise was wonderful, the crew entertaining, and the drinks were great! Upgrade to the Makani cup for the best deal on cocktails. We saw turtles and whales, the sail was smooth and the weather was perfect. One of the best sails I've been on. They don't have food on the afternoon cruise, so eat lunch first and bring... More

We've been on a noon tour. It was awsome. We've seen whales/turtles. It is an attraction which you can't miss. Take your ID because they serve alcoholic beverages.

I've been on the sunset cruise and the fireworks cruise with Sail Makani a few times; I've been impressed every time. I've been on their boat with a full compliment of passengers (80), and a small group of 12. Even with a large group, there's plenty of space on the boat to wander the deck and observe the many sights... More

Bartender was great, very talkative and helpful. I got a little nauseas and she helped me out a lot. Captain and first mate didn't talk much but were nice.

I know that it's impossible to control who will buy tickets for a commercial dinner/cocktail cruise, but our specific cruise was overrun with drunk young people who proceeded to drink more, behave raucously, and even become ill. We definitely picked the wrong place to sit, because, when they boarded, they somehow decided to congregate around us-- likely because we had... More

The staff was friendly and informative. We received free drinks, got to see humpback whales and sea turtles (from a distance), and enjoyed great views of Honolulu. My 10-year old daughter and husband were a little bored. My other 3 children seemed to enjoy it.

We took the Turtle Canyon sail out on a Sunday morning. The boat was lovely, just the right size to hold a dozen or so people. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable and made everyone feel comfortable, (thanks Amy!) even those who had never snorkeled before. Once out at Turtle Canyon we all got on life jackets and snorkel gear... More

We traveled to Oahu with all 14 family members. Grandparents, kids and grandkids. We all decided to do the afternoon catamaran sail that was included in our Go Oahu cards. Everyone had a blast! We had a beautiful day, the ocean had some nice swells and all of us (even the ones who usually get sea sick!) thought it was... More

Aloha Pat S, We were delighted to host you and your family on our decks. We're so honored your family included us! We love stories of multiple generations enjoying Sail Makani because when Capt. Jon built her, he really thought about what different people would want or need on a catamaran. Mahalo for sharing your experience and including us on... More
