"Feel the thrill" of exploring the crystal blue, warm Pacific waters on Makani, Hawaii's most luxurious sailing adventure. Enjoy Hawaii sunset cruises, Friday night fireworks and turtle snorkel adventures aboard this luxurious catamaran and see why sailing Waikiki has become so rewarding on Makani. Enjoy the spirit of the ocean and the breathtaking views of the island as the Polynesians did many years ago.

Makani, the finest Hawaii catamaran offers a covered cabin seating area, two large, freshwater restrooms, Bose surround sound system, LCD TV, sunbathing net areas, and pilothouse seating. No expense has been spared making Makani the catamaran of choice for the most discriminating customers, including many celebrities.

 

The Captain and crew will attend to your every need. We hope you will make Makani your first choice to "Feel the Thrill" and have an unforgettable Hawaiian ocean experience.

Staff members were friendly. They will warn you which areas of the boat will get soaked. So don't go there unless you want to get drenched. I don't think it's a good idea for little kids who get scared of the big waves. Great experience. My kids enjoyed it.

We motored out of Kawalo Basin on a partly cloudy morning. The ocean was choppy and the wind was strong, for a 3 hour cruise and snorkel. Doesn't sound like the formula for a successful day but the crew of the Makani made it so. We were anchored off of Turtle Canyons and given a safety briefing. Once we were... More

Although we didn't have the sun for our sunset cruise, it was good food and good fun on the catamaran. We had a Go Oahu card which allows an afternoon cruise, so we went back on our last vacation day in Honolulu for that and got to see turtles and be out on the beautiful watr again. The crew is...

We booked this through the GO Oahu card premium offer when purchasing the cards with a 3-day pass (highly recommend it) Reservation set up was hassle free when booking with the card. They give you drink tickets for your first drink once you board. Have the option to buy a large souvenir cup for $8 with the ticket or get... More

We took the dinner and fireworks cruise on Friday night. It was the best time I had on a boat for a long time. The crew is great, but the bartender is the best. Buy the boat cup and enjoy yourself. I can't wait to go back to Hawaii and take another dinner cruise with them.
