      Hospitality was Excellent!
      We had a very nice time, the hospitality was excellent. Snacks were a nice treat along with the sandwich lunch. The tour had 1 stop to snorkel where we saw various fish. It was a nice ride to be on.

      Saw dolphins and turtles, so worth it
      This was SOO worth it for us! We were searching for turtles our whole trip but couldnt spot them so decided to do a tour near where we were staying in Makaha. We saw 2-3 turtles floating while snorkeling and one swimming underwater. They took us to the beach near the space force (?) buildings at the north end of makaha for dolphins and we saw a huge pod. For snorkeling we were in front of Makaha beach, saw so many fish and the turtle too. The woman who led the snorkeling was so helpful for my mom who was nervous about swimming, and she guided her while snorkeling. The boat was also so fun, they had nets in the front that you could lay on and see the ocean underneath. Plus we got some complimentary mai tais and they were delish!

      Sunset Memories
      My son and I were lucky enough to get tickets the same day. We stayed in Hilo, so we drove 1.5 hours for this tour. It was worth it! Seeing the island from the water off shore offers a totally different perspective. The captain and crew were friendly and helpful. The drinks, snacks,food and reggae music offered a lovely ambiance. It made our last day on the island a special memory.

      Swimming with Sea Turtles!
      The crew was experienced and fun! It was a great trip and we swam with many sea turtles! The sea turtles swam under us and then came up for air right next to us.

      Warm May Day with calm waters
      All three guys running the boat were knowledgeable about the process slabs and the west side where we’re going. Asked us if we had questions and very friendly. We found schools of sleeping dolphins and even though they weren’t too close it was fun spotting them a little ways from the boat. We did see a couple of turtles from the boat too. Our guide saw a turtle and man o war in the water but we couldn’t catch up to the group in time. Breakfast was a little fruit and biscuit, lunch on the way back was a turkey wrap and chips, two drink tokens and ice water available anytime. We got great weather, learned about the history of this part of the island and were well taken care of. Looking forward to booking again.

      Hilton turtle canyon snorkel was worth doing.
      This was a fun Excursion. Saw lots of fish, hundreds in a school. Large, beautiful, bright colored fish. A few turtles were there, too. Water was a very blue color, but a slight bit murkey. Could see clearly about 10 yards or so. Fun boat ride, as well. Waves were a rolling 2 to 3 feet. 1 or 2 people were feeling it, but, the other 30 people had a great boat ride.

      Amazing views and Crew
      Captain Michael and the Crew were very welcoming and our family had a great experience on our afternoon sailing. The dolphins at the end of the trip made our day!

      Good fun
      I was one of 8 people at the back of the boat vomiting and defecating overboard. It was so rough and I showed up plastered. My bad.

      Sunset cruise with cocktails
      Had a great time. Great crew. Unexpected whale watching. Only downside was the poo poo platter was a bun with chicken on it.

      Trip highlight
      This was such a great sunset cruise! We had a great time! The crew was awesome and very attentive. We did get to see a few whales at a distance. It was definitely top 3 of my favorite highlights from our week vacation in Kona!

    The cruise was ok. It cost $89 per person and you go out for 2 hours. They serve food, which is terrible, dried up chicken, salty pork and some other items. You can drink which is the one positive. The crew is very nice but its just not worth the money. Spend it on a snorkeling adventure. I would definitely not do this again.

    We had an amazing sail! The sunset and weather were perfect. The food and drinks were also tasty. We were also lucky enough to see a whale as we came back toward the harbor, which was probably the highlight of the evening. I would definitely recommend this excursion again. Our hotel was in Ko Olina so we were specifically looking to avoid going to Waikiki to do a sunset sail and this was perfect.

    Note: lots of nice free parking, but don't plan to arrive too early as there isn't much else to do nearby. The public bathrooms were locked by 430 pm so be prepared to use the facilities on the catamaran if needed.

    Captian Dave and Crew, Ian and Bre did a GREAT job taking us out for a memorable sunset cruise along the beautiful Makaha Valley Coast. They made us feel welcome, comfortable and safe on their spacious catamaran sailboat. We enjoyed drinks and individually packaged mini-dinners and incredible views including spinning dolphins who entertained us for a long photo op, following us along side the boat. They were so up beat and happy to share their knowledge about the community, ecology and history of Oahu. This was our second fun trip with them and I hope we see them again next time! Mahalo, Hawaii Nautical!

    This was a truly beautiful sunset cruise. We were extremely lucky to spot several whales surfacing and ignored the sunset. While the sun was setting, a nearby whale was smacking/slapping its tail nearby. Seeing the whale(s) was unbelievable. The crew/captain seemed nice. The boat wasn't crowded and the food/drinks were good. The marina is off the beaten path and there are no major attractions nearby.

    Dave, the Captain along with the crew of Ian and Bree we exceptional. The cruise was beautiful and relaxing. Fortunately we had a small group so everyone got to know each other. Dave was very generous with the libations and in particular a few special mixes of their own. Viewing the sunset from bow of the boat was gorgeous and a perfect way to spend the evening with my sweetheart. The coastal scenery is exceptional. We strongly recommend this laid back, comfortable tour. Consider the time it takes to get to the boat if you are staying in Waikiki- allow a least 1.5 hours.

    The 3 man crew was made up of locals from Waianae. The 2 hour sail was delightful, the sunset amazing, and the whales abundant. Drink service was better than many sails, and the appetizers were enough for a meal. Parking was free and boarding was a snap. This is the one you want!

    Best excursion ever was this catamaran cruise with Captain Greg & crew. Parking available. Captain reviews safety measures then he sets sail! Two free drinks & boxed foods included, music to dance to! Great way to meet people, watch the sunset & that view of Waikiki is awesome! A+. Make sure you watch the crew unfold that magnificent hand-painted sail!

    We went on the sunset cruise last night and it was AMAZING! With the COVID protocols right now, there were only 12 of us on the boat. We saw so many groups of whales, great music, awesome staff, and just such a nice, calm sunset cruise. We actually live on the island, but are telling all our friends and family about it who will be visiting us so they can have a similar experience. Thanks so much to the staff for such an awesome Friday night!
