The 44-ft. Maita`i Catamaran takes off three times daily to sail the beautiful waters fronting the world’s most famous beach, Waikiki. Aside from incredible views and the exhilaration that comes with being on the ocean, the smooth riding twin-hulled rig serves up adult libations for passengers who are of age.

We had to reschedule our cruise. It was originally on a Saturday but luckily they allowed us to move it to Tuesday. Our boat was pretty packed with all ages. The seas were pretty rough. We didn't even go out all of the way because the waves were toppling over - but it was a great time! The mai tais... More

I did a sunset cruise and it was definitely one of the highlights of my trip. The two crew guys on board (forgot their names) made everyone feel welcome and at ease and it was an overall enjoyable experience. First or last on board, it doesn't matter cause there are no bad seats on the catamaran. It was great to... More

My husband and I had a great time on the Maita'i Catamaran! We went for the two-hour snorkeling trip, which I thought was the perfect amount of time! They took pictures of us next to the catamaran that you could buy as a souvenir afterwards and the guys on board are great! Lunch isn't too exciting, but it held us... More

Took catamaran on our first day in Wakkiki and sailed out in the ocean. Great view of the entire area and gave some perspective of the shoreline, all the hotels along the beach. The crew were extremely friendly and provided information about the area. Drinks can be purchased on the catamaran. Don't forget to put on suntan lotion if this... More

My friend and I wanted to see the Friday night fireworks show from a boat so we booked this boat ride. It was nice that they took us down and back along the shore so we got an actual ride in as well as some other sights. You get drinks included with the ride as well and the two guys... More

We boarded the catamaran behind the Sheraton in Waikiki. The directions on the site are helpful when trying to find parking. If you spend over $25 at the hotel, you can get your ticket validated. We sat near the infinity pool in the Sheraton, at The Edge bar. Great view and drinks. Definitely recommend doing this before boarding. Very relaxing.... More

I took this cruise in the morning and it was a perfect way to settle into the island life and see the Oahu coast from the sea. Gregg our captain and first mate Lindsey were amazing. So much fun. They played tropical island music and served some drinks.

We did a 3pm sail. It was so fantastic. The crew were awesome and happy to help in anyway they could. We were fortunate enough to see several pods of dolphins cruising in and out of the water- so special. Also as we came back we saw the biggest sea turtle we had ever seen. It was so relaxing watching... More

I got the pleasure of doing a trade wind sail and mai tai sunset sail in the same day. Captain Ian and Lindsey were absolutely wonderful! They gave me a warm welcome back when I arrived for the sunset sail with my husband. I've done quite a few sunset sails, but this was by far the best one yet. Music... More
