If you are looking for something really cool and different to do when on Oahu, I would highly recommend the Friday Firework’s Cruise with Tradewind Charters. I found them via a Google search. I then visited TripAdvisor and thoroughly read through all the posts before deciding to giving them a try. When I emailed them asking for more information, they... More

Our trip with Tradewinds in Honolulu was good and bad. First, Captain Ken shows up 20 minutes late. But we had a delightful voyage, snorkeling with Turtles. Then the difficult side of this review. The rip-off. I asked them to provide lunch, they said it would be $25 per person, which we agreed to. The lunch consisted of a large... More

We book a sunset cruise on the LOVE BOAT, but we were put on another of the companies boat. A 40ft beautiful sail boat. We had the pleasure of meeting the owner Duke and first mate Ryan. Ryan was learning on how to sail a boat. He had plenty of experience on the water, but not on a 40ft sail... More

We recently went out on two different occasions on a Tradewind Charter firework evening sail. Both times we were on the Love Boat. We left around 6:15pm, and returned two hours later. It was supposed to be a sailing charter but the captain used the engine for at least half the time. The sunsets were incredible, and the fireworks off... More

We did the evening fireworks boat trip and had a nice time. The food was average, but the boat ride and fireworks were very romantic and a nice touch on our honeymoon. We enjoyed it!

We sailed w capt Paul and every aspect of the trip was perfect. We chartered the boat for put sailing lessons and he was the best instructor we've ever had and we have had lessons with five other captains. He made it fun, relaxing, easy going, interesting and created the perfect learning environment. We had such a great time we... More

We booked the "Love Boat" for our reception with friends after an afternoon wedding on the beach. We were treated great by Captain Crash and Duke. We were able to track down 3 whales while we were out. We had wine, dinner and wedding cake. Remember folks it's a sailboat not a catered kitchen so calibrate your meal expectations accordingly....
