    Captain John and his staff led a fantastic experience to see some of the greatest creatures and fish. We really enjoyed the day. They exceeded all our explanations. Teens love it as did our 8 year old.

    My toddler is so entertained by the view, and had an opportunity to touch the fish. The crew are so nice and friendly. My husband and older parents are pleased I booked this tour. We saw fishes and one turtle through the ride. The energy is very positive and refreshing . If you have kids or toddler, it's safe for them

    It was very easy process to get checked in. The staff was eager to help get drinks and snacks. We got a lot of good pictures of the skyline and sunset. I took Dramamine before and I did fine. It was nice that there was a discount offered for us since we also did the Atlantis Submarine tour as well.

    What a wonderful experience! Great hosts and lots to see! The speaker shared a ton of historical knowledge about the island and had great jokes too!

    We took the sunset cruise and did some swimming further out in the water. We did sight two turtles swimming along while heading to the swim spot
    The crew was great and attentive to everyone on the cruise.
    Definitely recommend — though this cruise was two hours it went slightly longer which was great and allowed everyone to enjoy the sunset

    We had a great time. Even though the water was a little higher than expected, the non-swimmers were still able to fully enjoy themselves. The band performed various genres of music and we were able to text them song requests while we were off the boat. Everyone enjoyed themselves. It's a good idea to bring a float if you just want to sit in the water.

    It was a great experience......they were accommodating. There are a lot of people in one area with the other tours that meet at the same the same place.

    It was great to see O’ahu from the water. Check in and boat crew were amazing! The waters can be a bit rough going out, but it was smooth sailing coming in. Although never guaranteed, we did see a large amount of dolphins on the way back to shore. Just know that this boat does not leave from a dock. It departs directly from the beach. But definitely choose this company, they are the best!

    Amazing experience and great way to end our Hawaii vacation. The private tour allowed us to experience the ocean in a private and custom way. Francesco was amazing and I would highly recommend.

    Small, friendly group with knowledgeable and helpful staff. Mason invited my kids to help lift the sails, and he and Jenna went out of their way to help with our bags and shoes. Getting on and off the boat was a struggle for my 4 year old and 67 year old mother, but other than that, the experience was wonderful! Definitely plan to do it again…

    Jet skiing it the best thing ever, if you like off-roaring especially, this is the activity to do. They had a course that you went around in circles with which honestly got a bit boring. I wouldn’t make this experience outstanding, but definitely fun! All the people there were concerned about both their and our safety.

    We chartered Honolulu Sailing's Gaugin sailboat for a three-hour "Sunset Sailing/Snorkeling" private tour to celebrate our anniversary.  This tour is a great option for one or two couples, or perhaps a small family, who want to enjoy the beautiful waters near Waikiki on a vessel that isn't packed with tourists.

    We boarded the Gaugin from the marina at the Kewalo Basin Harbor, which is between Waikiki and Downtown Honolulu. Captain Rick, an experienced sailor, welcomed us onboard, and First Mate Sebastian offered to stow our possessions. Sebastian said he would be happy to do whatever he could to make our journey comfortable, safe, and fun. He did not disappoint us.

    The Gaugin has a covered passenger section in the aft part of the boat that seats four comfortably with table between them. There is also space near the bow where you can sit or stand. (If the ocean is choppy, you'll need to hold onto the mast or ropes when you're upfront.) Below deck, there is a small galley with a refrigerator, stove, and table, as well as two bathrooms.   

    We brought our own cooked food and beverages, which Sebastian brought up to us from the galley whenever we wanted. He also reheated the food that needed to be served warm, and he cleaned up afterwards. Although his primary job is to help the captain and ensure our safety, he couldn't have been more friendly and helpful.

    Sadly, Mother Nature was less cooperative. It was cloudy and cool most of the time (unusual for late April), and light rain fell intermittently.  Captain Rick went further offshore than he had planned to escape the rain, which was heavier near the shore. Unfortunately, the weather prevented us from seeing a beautiful ocean sunset, which we had been looking forward to.  Nevertheless, we still had a really good time on the boat, had some nice picture-taking opportunities near Diamond Head, Waikiki, and Kakaako, and we enjoyed learning about sailing from Captain Rick and Sebastian, and hearing about some of their previous adventures.

    Incidentally, I had made our reservation through the Honolulu Sailing Co. web site. When I first attempted to pay, my credit card was unexpectedly declined. A few minutes later, I got an email from my bank asking if I had initiated this purchase and wanted it to be approved. That was a little scary, but I took a chance and said yes, and I was then able to complete the transaction . I can imagine that many prospective passengers experiencing a similar credit card issue would simply switch to a different sailing company. If my experience was common, Honolulu Sailing without realizing it may be missing out on potential customers.
