Affordable way to tour the shores of the island. We had a group of four and it more affordable then even the most basic tour. Great boat and great company.

Reservations were easy, adventure was amazing and the staff friendly. I would highly recommend this company for the quality of the boat, ease of rental and price. Hawaii is definitely something to see from the water. Safety briefing brought comfort to my family.

Triumph 21.5 ours had a Honda 150 although I think many are 115hp. Very nice boat. We booked a month in advance although I am not sure that much notice is needed. Have fun.
