One of the best boat tours ever! We had a bit of a rainy day/evening on Oahu, so there was a fairly small group for our tour, but the crew, Capt. Matt, Mike, and Matt the mates, was just fabulous. They made sure everyone was comfortable about the boat, and were quick to provide the included beverages for young and old. All three were obviously passionate about what they were doing as they not only wasted no time getting the sails up but then spent plenty of time explaining the sights and locations as we passed. There were several whale sightings and 1st Mate/Capt. in training Mike was quick to get us in position for better views of them. Capt. Matt entertained with stories of his many and varied sailing adventures, and his other mate, Matt, kept everyone supplied with drinks. And then they laid on a very expansive and varied selection of food! Shrimp, chicken, all kinds of meats and cheeses, veggie plate, and fruit, it was much more than we expected and part of the price of the trip. Overall a great experience and highly recommended.

Captain Travis and his team delivered an amazing sunset cruise. Our family from grandparents, to parents and kids had a blast. They went the extra mile to stay our late to be sure we caught a great sunset and we’re super helpful in being sure we all had food and drinks throughout. Highly recommend for a great time near Ko Olina. Thanks crew!

We did the sunset cruise. The crew was polite, and friendly. We left a bit late because two groups were about 5 or 10 minutes late. Not a good thing for those on time, but a lifesaver if you get stuck in traffic, make a wrong turn, or have to look for a parking spot.

There were about 30 people on board, but the boat never felt crowded. They serve you drinks, 3 alcoholic and unlimited non are included, and also food. They had chicken or turkey wraps, a shrimp dish, cheese and salami, pretzels, and Mimi cookies. All included.

We sailed up the coast. Turned around and sailed back down and then watched the sunset near the channel back to the dock.

The boat was a good size. Never felt crowded. There are places to sit inside with tables, or outside on mats or the boat. There are restrooms on board. As well as a bar.

Again the crew walked around asking if you needed a drink, and brought the food around so you never had to move unless you chose to.

Overall a great experience. I would recommend this to anyone looking to do a sunset cruise in the area

You people are the worst! You took my money and never made my reservation for the luau. You sent an email immediately about snorkel to fill out a liability form prior to our trip but I received absolutely nothing about the luau. You state it is on website but that is unacceptable as the moment you took my money it was a contract to book both excursions. There was zero communication after you took my money regarding the luau until you sent me a cancellation notice two days prior to my scheduled luau. Luaus are totally sold out on Oahu and you destroyed a once in a lifetime trip.

On top of all that your customer service agent was extremely rude and plain nasty.

I will advise anyone going to Hawaii to not book through your company.

We had an Amazing time! Captain Travis and the crew were the best!!! We went on 1/16/2020. Our trip was the second one and we had about 16 people on the boat. The fish were so beautiful and the dolphins appeared playful. Even seen a manta ray. Thank you for a great time! Definitely will recommend to others😉

Amazing!! I did 2 trips with Captain Todd and crew, on 2 seperate days. Absolutely loved everything about it! Both days we were graced with a pod of spinner dolphins who came out to play and show off. All the crew were extremely skilled and knowledgeable with the local sea life and snorkeling. Everything was extremely laid back and relaxed. No pressure to do anything. The sunset cruise was just that, a nice cruise. Lay back and enjoy the ocean and views!

I highly recommend both cruises. If you snorkel, opt for the $5 of fish food. Totally worth it! Yeah someone else in the group will do it and will bring all the fish in. But having your own bag and having the fish come to you, totally awesome! Feel like Ace Ventura of the ocean summoning all the aquatic creatures to you!

Definitely a 12/10 score on this. They knock it out of the park

A week before our scheduled sunset cruise I received an email saying it had been canceled due to maintenence. I had purchased vouchers on Groupon and was concerned about getting a refund. I called and was told how to get refund but also given 2 options for reschedule. One of them actually worked for us in our full vacation schedule. This crew was awesome! We had an amazing time. Snacks and drinks were great and they weren't collecting "drink tickets." Cruise was scheduled to be over at 7, but sun didn't set till about 7:15. They stayed out until the sun was down and it was beautiful!

Our group of 5 took the tour on 9/18/21 and it was an amazing way to kick off the day and for our first adventure. The ride was beautiful, fishes and snorkeling were a blast. We got all the important safety information we needed and even that wasn’t the usual drag. The crew was over the top great. Constantly making sure we were taken care of along with working the catamaran and equipment. They were all awesome but we give Shannon extra props for her ability to make everyone feel special. Great job crew!!

This was an incredibly fun time. Included in the snorkel trip were three island drinks or beers and all the equipment needed. We saw humpback whales breaching and dolphins on our way out to our spot. During snorkeling we saw a sea turtle and tons of beautiful fish. My wife and I highly recommend this trip.
My brother had a soft cast on his broken leg and the crew were extremely helpful during the trip (helping him get on and off as well as getting him drinks).

What a glorious evening! The weather was perfect, the boat was beautiful and the crew was excellent.

I was a little worried about the number of passengers that would be on board and that it would be packed. It was actually perfect, lots of room to spread out and didn’t feel crowded at all.

Our group of 6 all had a wonderful time. The appetizers and drinks were just right and very fresh. The cruise was just the right length and we watched the sunset just before heading back to the marina.

I would definitely recommend.
