This was a very relaxing and great scenic morning cruise on a Catamaran complete with breakfast carbs like donuts, croissants, and fruit. Coffee and juice as well as alcoholic drinks like mimosas, rum, scotch, vodka were included. We didn't see any whales; however, we did see a very large sea turtle. The trip from the Hilton dock to Diamond Head... More

We did the Turtle Snorkel cruise with this operator and it was great fun and an amazing experience which we would highly recommend to other travellers. The tour was very well conducted, safe and fun. Not expensive and the crew were very friendly and made sure everyone enjoyed their cruise. We saw 5 turtles up close and lots of other... More

My husband and I went on this. We did the sunset cruise and is a great way to see the Honolulu skyline at night. Staff were lovely. However the website describes it as a dinner cruise, its more like a few snacks no way is it enough for a meal.

Most of our fun was had on the north shore however this was right outside of our hotel, so why not? Captain and crew were exceptionally accommodating, snorkeling was really good- turtles were everywhere. It's the beginning of whale season but they haven't shown up yet. If you're considering this beginning December 1st, you have a pretty good chance of... More

My husband and I had the best time on this snorkel lunch and sail! The crew was absolutely awesome, drinks and food were great! And we were up close and personal with the turtles!! My first time snorkeling and the crew have great instruction and guidance.

On the suggestion of some folks we met, we decided to give the Reef Tour a try since we hadn't seen any turtles at Hanauma Bay. This was the best chance we took on our trip. The captain and crew were great. While my wife and I have no issues with the ocean, a few of the passengers were a... More

The cruise was a beautiful way to see Waikiki and the fireworks on the Friday night. The crew were wonderful and generous with drinks and delicious buffet. We had a great unobstructed vantage point on the water. Highly recommended.

On our last night in Honolulu we went out on the sunset cruise and we were not disappointed, even with a little bit of rain, it was still fantastic. The crew members were awesome, even allowing our son to steer the catamaran on the way back. It was one of the highlights of our trip.

We had a great time on the cocktail cruise. The crew was fun and attentive. At no time did I suffer from an empty glass (we tipped accordingly). While the appetizers are nothing to rave about, there was food to lay a base of alcohol. And besides, are you on a sunset cocktail cruise for the food? Even though the... More

What a sensational cruise. Did the sunset fireworks Friday cruise from the Hilton. What can I say, brilliant guys, a great team on board. Food was amazing and everything was beautiful. Took my mother on this who is in her 80s and she loved it. Calm waters, beautiful fireworks and just an overall great night. Many thanks.
