    Classic Beneteau First 42.7 for Charter! Sail Away in Paradise! Honolulu!

    What a special day! Nolan and Agon took us out on an excellent adventure! The kids had the time of their lives snorkeling and jumping off the boat. Highly recommend for a more personal experience! Both guys were respectful of COVID rules also and wore their masks for the duration of trip!

    Charter the fastest Corsair F-31 Sailboat in the Hawaiian Islands - Honolulu, HI

    Nicholas and his crew were excellent. They were timely, professional, and fun. They had an excellent cooler and speaker on board, and a great set of snorkling gear! The boat was also very comfortable for our group of 5, but I'm sure it could comfortably fit more. This was definitely a highlight of our trip!

    Beneteau First 42.7 Monohull in Kewalo Habour Honolulu, Hawaii

    What an amazing day we had with Cpt Kevin and his right hand Sebastian. They went above and beyond to make sure we were comfortable, safe and enjoying the trip. We did an underwater photo session and Cpt Kevin became our behind the scenes videographer, and Sebastian became our safety guy to make sure bride and groom didn't sink underwater. Later Sebastian was even kind enough to take photos of us underwater. They were kind enough to extend the trip by an extra hour. We had a blast and this boating experience is the best we have had so far! Thank you, Kevin and Sebastian!

    Scape 40' Sailing Catamaran Honolulu, Hawaii

    This was by far the best thing my group and I did while visiting Hawaii. Response to book was prompt, we were able to book 2 days before the actual boat tour which we thought would be impossible. We were greeted by Captain Rich & Josh upon arrival. They were super informative and accommodating. I would highly recommend these two! 10/10 All in all, they made us feel very welcomed and they were super chill and let us do our thing. I’m surprised they were even able to put up with our group. lol The boat was well equipped, spacious, and clean! Definitely exceeded my expectation. It was our last night in Hawaii and we all agreed that this was the perfect way to wrap up our vacation with the sunset tour. I would do this again over and over again. Please don’t think about booking, just do it. You will have the best time just like we all did!

    Sailing Charter On 48' Custom Made Sailing Catamaran In Honolulu, Hawaii

    We had such an amazing time! The captain and crew were knowledgeable and friendly. The boat was very clean and comfortable. We felt right at home. While snorkeling we saw some sea turtles and tons of fish. Later in the trip we even saw a whale with its baby! The sunset at the end was the cherry on top. 15 out of 10, would recommend and hire again.
