I was so disappointed in our experience that I felt compelled to write this review. We were in Hawaii with our kids for a week vacation. (Their first time) We saw this ride in a magazine from Alamo rentals and thought it looked like a great time. We convinced our friends to come with us and so the eight of us drove from the other side of the island for our last adventure together. The guy who helped us on the boat and rode with us was great. He was very nice, enthusiastic and helpful. The boat captain, I am afraid to say, had other motives. We were there on the 4th of July and we soon discovered (as we were floating around in circles for about 20 minutes) that he was mostly concerned about getting another large pirate boat anchored so they can join the thousands of others who were setting up to watch fireworks later that evening. If I had not stood up and said something, we would have been there much longer. Honestly, this is really not a good ride anyway. If you have ever ridden a jet ski of any kind, they are much more fun. Our 'captain' spun us around three times in our entire ride and the rest of the journey to the pirate ship and back consisted of slowing down abruptly to soak us with water. This was fun the first 2 to 3 times but got old after his stunt and just by sheer boring repetition. I would not recommended a company that puts their own selfish needs above that of their customers. He was not even apologetic about it. Needless to say, even my children said the whole ride was LAME.
