We had a wonderful experience. Captain Wes was amazing! Our four children were able to snorkel with the sea turtles. I recommend this excursion, especially with families with children. Our children’s ages are from 3-13 and they all had an amazing time.

My now fiancée thought the entire time on the sailboat was wonderful. The captain and crew were aware I was planning to propose and did a great job of giving us space while also being close by to capture the moment. I asked for a bottle of champagne to be ready and they had it out very quickly. They captured every moment for us and air dropped the photos before we left. We were able to spot a pod of whales and follow them for quite awhile at the closest safe legal distance. It was amazing! I may have paid for the trip but the 2 guys onboard are what made the trip. Thank you all so much for giving me the perfect venue to propose!

I was celebrating my 30th birthday in Hawaii with a group of friends and wanted to do a boat day where we could snorkel and just be out on the water. After doing tons of research into various boat companies in the Honolulu and West Oahu areas, I found Tradewind Charters and was pleasantly surprised by the cost for a private charter (most other boats were similarly priced but would have been with many more people onboard!) We had a truly wonderful afternoon sailing with Captain Nate and first mate Francesco aboard the My Sunshine. They had a cooler full of cold drinks waiting for us on board, a wireless speaker that we could play our music through, and all of the snorkeling and safety equipment needed. Nate and Francesco were so kind and accommodating and took tons of great photos of our group, both on the boat and while we were snorkeling. We got to swim with sea turtles which was a highlight! I highly recommend Tradewind Charters for an unforgettable boating experience.

Wonderful trip with the Captain Nick - professional and courteous- with a sense of humor on the side (he was singing and dancing for our children) while Dad was busy fishing. And any request we had, the captain made it happen. We look forward to another adventure with Tradewind Charters on next visit to Hawaii
