We were fortunate to visit in January when the whales were active. This is a large powered boat with a friendly crew. There isn't sufficient room for everyone to sit on the front of the boat so when you board be sure to go up front immediately if you want a good seat. They offer shuttle services from hotels (we...

So we booked the sunset set sail and whale and champagne cruise. What could be better? And what a wAy to start New Year's Eve!! Everyone was excited. Well I should have read the ad on their website instead of being pulled in by their pictures: 1). Not a sail boat. 2). A small catamaran with 4 booth seating tables.... More

Best night ever. Amazing Ocean Sports sunset. Crew on deck serving unlimited drinks, great food, perfect sun set. totally go again! Tried so many tour companies on the Big Island over the past 13 years and this group is top of the charts. Can't wait to try their snorkel trips out A Bay in Waikoloa.

We were picked up from our hotel and taken to the port where we boarded the catamaran. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout the whole journey. We made good use of the free bar and food. It was very nice to sit on the 'trampolines' whilst watching the sun setting. They had live music on board which was... More

Defiantly worth the money. We did the sunset cocktail cruise with Pupus. There are a few different options on their website. We opted for the catamaran sunset sail and it was awesome. Being out in the ocean with the sails blowing in the wind. Soft Hawaiian music playing while the waves gently rock you. Perfect! The drinks were well made... More

We went on this cruise that was advertised to be a sunset cruise with cocktails and heavy appetizers. It did provide what it said it would but in the opinion of the group that I went with everything about this was done on the cheap. The drinks were not very good although you could have as many as you liked.... More

Definitely one to go for if you have the time. Disappointing start as the sailing boat was out of commission and we went out on a motorised Cat instead but the captain and crew went out of their way to make it a great evening and find a good vantage point for the lovely sunset.
