Can't thank Tradewind Charters and Captain Bobby enough for all the help putting together my proposal on the 19th of August 2016. The sunset and fireworks combo on a private charter was perfect for what I needed - and while it was a little awkward getting down on one knee on a boat, it worked a treat. Really enjoyed the...

Our captain, Bobbie, and his wife, took us out for our cruise. They were very pleasant and told us lots of information about the surrounding area. The boat accommodated all us (11) very easily and we were allowed to sit out on the bow so we could enjoy the view more. We were going to snorkel, but the water was... More

I wanted to do something special for my parents 50th wedding anniversary which we were celebrating in Hawaii, so I booked a private three hour charter with Tradewinds for the four of us. It was perfect from the moment we stepped onto the boat until we returned to dock. Our captain was friendly, knowledgeable and welcoming. We had a wonderful... More

We took the three hour tour. Our guide was Paul and he did an awesome job. The sail boat was wonderful. We swam with sea turtles. And had a leisurely sale back. Much better than the huge group tours.

Capt. Ken, Just wanted to send my Mahalo for the awesome sail yesterday..!!! Capt. Paul made us welcome and did a great job hosting our gang. We ended up with 11 aboard and, even with that crowd, Paul gave us a great sail. His timing was great, with the right mix of sailing, swimming time, pupu's and a quiet end... More

Got down on one knee and asked and she said yes! Thank you to Captain Ken and the team, for making such a... More

Captain Ken and his team, did an outstanding job coordinating and planning our beloved daughter's ash scattering at sea. The ceremony itself was all we could ask for. From the boat, to the flowers, minister, and musician, it was exactly what we had envisioned for her. The traditional Hawaiian minister did an excellent job combining a traditional Hawaiian ceremony and... More

8 Of us sailed with Capt. Paul on Saturday 2/27. Capt Paul was awesome, attentive, professional and most all a lot of fun!! We saw a humpback whale giving birth, turtles, countless fish and amazing views of Honolulu from the water. We will definitely sail again with Tradewinds!!
