My family of 9 did 2 different excursions with Paradise Sailing. On the 4hr snorkel they took us to a couple of phenomenal snorkel sites. They were very accommodating when it came to my 6yr old son with Autism. The sunset sail was a perfect evening too. Eric and Yumi are 2 of the nicest people you could meet. We would love to book them again the next time we are on the Big Island. I highly, highly recommend this company.

We had the pleasure of sailing with Yumi and Ericn for a private family sunset sailing excursion to celebrate my husband's 60th birthday. The catamaran was so spacious and we had smooth sailing! It was a lovely sunset and we even got to experience a green flash! I would highly recommend booking this boat for any sailing excursion in the Kona area.

Eric and Yumi are delightful, knowledgeable hosts. Their boat is so comfortable, clean and really well maintained. After getting lucky and seeing a dolphin show as we left the harbor, they took us to a great spot for snorkeling. Then we enjoyed a sail around Kona and some snacks. I highly recommend paradise sailing if visiting the Big Island!

Our group of 3 families (with 6 adults and 9 kids) did a 3-hour morning sail and had a wonderful time with Captain Eric and Yumi. First off, the catamaran is immaculate and you can tell they have pride of ownership; they've built custom cushions, shades, and wooden drink holders on board to make our experience top-notch and comfortable. Second, planning the trip in advance with Eric was an easy and organized process; I received emails with clear instructions on pricing, what to prepare, etc. Third, they took us to a wonderful snorkeling spot with clear waters and lots of fish and found a pod of dolphins that swam and played right alongside our boat for at least 15 minutes. You can tell they have thought through a lot of small details to optimize our enjoyment -- like having a gravity shower by the boat's steps to enable us to rinse off the salt water after our snorkel. Most importantly, though, I appreciated the way they interacted with our families. Three of the girls in our group are learning how to sail, and they invited them to help raise the sails, navigate the boat, and ask questions about sailing. LOVED IT. I would recommend them 100%!!!

We took our kids and grandkids out for a private sailing and snorkel day. Everyone enjoyed it so much. They were very sweet to the kids - letting them help with the sails and going to look for dolphins. Didn't find dolphins but we had such a fun day that we didn't mind. SO much better than a group tour with a bunch of strangers!
