We sailed out much further than I expected, giving us amazing views of Waikiki, Diamond Head, and even some whales! I would have enjoyed it more had I not been feeling ill, but the first mate Amy gave me some ginger which... More

We used the Go Oahu card. Easy to book for the day and time I wanted. A perfect day for a Catamaran ride. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable about the area. We saw whales and sea turtles out on our cruise.
