This is a must. The catamaran itself was fantastic, you could sunbathe upfront or sit on the back under the cover away from the sun and still get some vitamin D and color. The Captain and the Deck Hand were amazing. They were knowledgeable, paid attention to safety and were very personable. There are only 3 couples that this catamaran accommodates, and it was perfect. There was PLENTY of space for all. This is how you do it. The ticket price included drinks and lunch and all the snorkeling equipment. As soon as we got onboard, we were asked what we wanted to drink, and they were prepared from scratch for all. They kept coming. There was no shortage of that. After snorkeling a nice lunch was provided with included taro ships and two kinds of wraps. It was delicious and light at the same time for boating activity. It was just perfect. We highly recommend this activity with Mana Cruises. This is the only way of doing it: plenty of delicious and refreshing drinks, great lunch, great crew and most importantly it felt like a private yacht… well it was for the time we were on it!!! You simple must do it. In the top 3 highlights of our Oahu and Maui vacation. 10 Stars!!!

We traveled to Oahu and actually had two excursions with Mana cruises. Both were equally fantastic and highly recommend. At no point did we feel like one of the overcrowded tourist trap snorkeling boats. Prior to our cruises, I found the company to be incredibly responsive to questions and they made sure to gather information on us to help make our trip extremely personalized. Our private snorkeling trip was at the beginning of our vacation and both Austin and Matteo were incredible hosts. They had a high level of attentiveness to the entire family and made us feel incredibly welcomed. Matteo was wonderful as a snorkel guide by showing/teaching us about the marine life and even going so far as to free dive with our go-pro to video a sleeping Sea Turtle that he had found. I know that the marine life can be unpredictable but we were able to see up close and personal: Star Fish, Sea Turtles, and a large pod of spinner dolphins. Trip would have been wonderful even without seeing all of the marine life but made it that much more spectacular.

The crew was fantastic - very attentive , friendly, and knowledgeable. The yacht is impeccable and extremely clean and the bonus of 3 bathrooms was convenient. Food and drinks were delicious and the snorkeling gear was really good. The water wasn’t the best onour day but the crew was able to attract a good amount of fish and we did find a few turtles and a huge pod of dolphins. I will do this cruise every time I come back. It was by far my favorite experience on Oahu.

The views are outstanding out on the water. Staff is super friendly and provided great service. The food was great too and we enjoyed it as we watched the sunset on the water. I would recommend bringing some Dramamine if you get seasick because it was a little choppy at times. Overall, great experience and would do it again!

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! - Mahalo
