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....

Our group of 4 chose the "half day sail and snorkel" tour. As it was just our small group, we were given lots of personal attention. The Cpt. and first mate, though they argued sometimes like a married couple, were very cordial, entertaining, as well as safe and knowledgable. My brother in law was allowed to take the helm under...

Tradewind Charters on Oahu is a company that I would advise not using for a memorial (release of ashes), outer island service. You are better off charting directly the local island captain- Maui via Scotch Mist 2 or Trilogy catamaran, and buying your leis/bags of flowers from local island vendors. After months of planning-reserving, our charter America 2 was cancelled... More

It is my fiances 30th birthday and I wanted to surprise him with something special so I booked a romantic dinner cruise for two. Once I had received my conformation email I realized that there was no price quoting for any of the information. Upon calling the local number to inquire about the payment his response was "I am on... More

It was a great experience, great people, everything was beautiful, great afternoon in the sun, fish everywhere, turtles here and there, we were out in the afternoon so did not see the whales but were advised of this before our outing and chose the sun instead. Great captain with Paul as our host for the afternoon, Ken set it all... More

We recently travelled from Australia to Hawaii to honour the wishes of my late husband to have his ashes scattered over the Pacific (he was a US citizen). I found Capt Ken's Hawaii Ash Scattering business on the Internet and, from the very first dealing I had with him, I found him to be informative, helpful, friendly and respectful. On... More

Capt Ken was unwilling to make any concessions on our wedding reception charter despite many problems, concerns and mishaps. We checked out his boat several days ahead of our booked 3 hour sunset dinner cruise for 23. We immediately grew concerned when we realized there was not nearly enough seating out of the weather for our party - though the... More
