Really dope experience. They staff took us to successfully see a large group of dolphins and Alaskin humpback whales. There was a hiccup with one of our members due to disability and the staff truly showed professionalism and concern for their clients. Recommend them 100 percent for anyone looking for a private charter.

What an amazing evening with Daniel and Ryan! The food was amazing, the sunset was beautiful and we had the most amazing time hearing stories from both Daniel and Ryan. A great bonus was seeing the Green Flash with the sunset. Wonderful Hawaiian evening!

The boat and crew were fabulous! This cruise was only for six people so we avoided the boatload of twenty or thirty snorkelers. The boat was really a yacht with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. Lunch was really good. The crew had lots of interesting stories about the area. Snorkel equipment was the best and we didn’t have to wear a life jacket. I used a snorkel belt which is perfect. I would do this again and again. Mana is the best!

We were looking for a classy, upscale cruise along Waikiki and we found it with Mana! Max of 6 allowed on a gorgeous ship which provided wonderful ambiance. No loud music, no crowds, pure Hawaii magic start to finish.

We went on the sunset cruise which included a great dinner and all drinks… even spirits which were delightful and plentiful. 10/10 recommend.

Thank you Mana! We can’t wait to cruise with you again.

My husband and I took the morning cruise and sailed around Waikiki. Luckily, we were able to see dolphins and turtles while we were snorkeling. It was a beautiful day. For someone who is scared of deep water, I felt very safe with the crew. Marco and Captain Craig are the best! They were very knowledgeable about the ocean and provided excellent service. I highly recommend anyone staying on Oahu to take this cruise. It is worth every penny and the views are stunning.

This was absolutely amazing. Signed up for a 6 person sunset + snorkel and only ended up being my group of 4. The boat was beautiful. Food was great. The captains were absolutely amazing and made the experience so great! Cannot recommend enough! Thank you Mana Cruises!

Such a great evening with Captain Mark. Wife and I did this rivate charter out of Ko’Olani Latina and had a terrific time. This is a great value to have the boat to yourselves for 2 1/2 hours.

Mana Cruises is definitely the company to choose.

Our full day private boat charter was perfect! A day of snorkeling, visiting a private beach, fishing, cruising, relaxing, and eating lots of yummy food. Daniel and Emmanuel ensured that we were always comfortable and had everything we needed. The highlight of our visit to Hawaii! Highly recommended!

First off I wanna say the hosts were amazing & welcomed us with open arms as if we were there family. It’s 5 stars from us & definitely recommend - 10/10 would do again! We had such a great time. Captain & Master chef Koolio were amazing people, hope to get them again next time!

Absolutely phenomenal experience!! My husband and I did the morning snorkeling charter and had the best time. This exceeded our expectations in every way! We cruised with only one other couple who we really enjoyed spending the day with. Captain Travis and Mateo were excellent and took the best care of us. We saw whales, turtles, and a pod of dolphins that came right up to the boat- so cool! Drinks and lunch were delicious, the boat was immaculate, and the scenery was incredible! Thanks so much to the MANA crew for a wonderful time!
