I’ve been learning to sail and getting my hours towards my Captains license with captain Dan for a little more than two years now. He’s a pleasure to work with and an encyclopedia of sailing knowledge. With 50+ years of experience he’s a pillar in the sailing community and a Hawaiin legacy. Highly recommend Captain Dan for all tour sailing needs!

We had a most enjoyable day of sailing out of Hilo, while staying in the inner harbor as seas were high outside and not all of our group were able to weather high seas. Captain Dan instructed us and also gave each of us a chance to practice our sailing and knot tying skills. A highlight was to be on the water enjoying the sun while seeing snow on top of the Mauna Loa Volcano; A very impressive and unusual combination. Another highlight, which was incredibly fun and spirited, was when Captain Dan took the boat on a slalom course around the harbor bouys - Wow!

This was a great experience and I, as a 13-year old learning to sail, I enjoyed learning from his advice. This would be a great learning experience for an aspiring sailor!

Such an amazing great day with captain Dan. He taught me a lot! Then took me on an adventure! Ask him for rates, it's well worth it!! I highly recommend Captain Dan, lots of sailor stories and very informative. He'll even let u take the helm and adjust the sails!!

This captain, was amazing. He was very knowledgeable, and after 5 minutes on the water...he let me take over, rest of journey. I didn't know terms of sailing, and he was patient and explained very well. I'd recommend doing this, especially if your a new sailer. Thanks for the amazing experience! (->^-^)>
