The crew was amazing! Very comfortable, funny, confident in how they were running things. Very good drinks too! Ask for the bartenders version of a Moscow Mule drink 🍹!

AMAZING. Our captain and First Mate did a great job. The weather was perfect, music was fun, and we had dolphins with us! So much fun and when we return to Hawaii, we will do another Catamaran for sure!

Great crew, fun, informative and energetic. Relaxing voyage. No sea turtle or dolphin sightings. Staff at the ticket booth could have been more friendly considering she is in the tourist business. Great Catamaran.

The captain and crew at Sail Makani were phenomenal and provided an awesome experience seeing dolphins and sea turtles as well as gorgeous views of Waikiki and neighboring areas along the coast of Oahu. We will definitely use this company in future visits to Oahu.

Everything about this snorkel/sailing trip was perfect. The captain and crew were very professional. Lifeguards accompanied us in the water as a safety measure. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone.
