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

    If you can book this boat, DO IT! It’s big, clean, and gorgeous. The crew is so friendly and helpful and VERY fun. My family of 11 boats often and was the best and most seamless experience we’ve had with a chartered rental. Absolutely wonderful and we want to come back to Hawaii just to book them again. (P.S. The captain is a great dancer! :) )

    Awesome experience! Loved how down yo earth and informative the captain was. So kind and helpful! I definitely recommend doing a sunset cruise for the pictures, it gets breezy so I’d also recommend wearing comfy clothing or bringing a small jacket or hoodie!
