What To Expect Onboard: The "Maheli Heli" is a brand new 2016 SeaHawk 36 custom from SeaHawk Industries of Sebring Fl. After 14 months of intense, attention to detail construction and rigging, she was christened in the pristine waters of off Kona HI. She is the first new excursion boat to the islands in many years. She has been out fitted with the only the best and up to date safety equipment, electronics and power train. She is powered by a Cummins QSB 6.7L. which complies with all U.S. EPA Tier 3 emissions regulations without the use of any after treatments. She also meets the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) and SOLAS requirements. THE QSB engines were designed with enhanced sociability with the high-pressure common-rail design which virtually eliminates exhaust smoke and allows for quiet operations. This design allows for an 80-percent reduction in noise and emissions which we all know improves the whole boating experience. We added an additional muffler and noise suppression system which increases the noise reduction and exhaust efficiency dramatically. She is a clean quite running machine. Being an excursion boat she is required to be a USCG Certificate of Inspection (COI) certified vessel. This is an extremely high safety standard to meet and maintain.Our COI inspection certificate is posted on the boat. She is equipped with state of the art marine safety equipment. Which includes the following: • Automated fire suppression system • 2 VHF radios – class D with automated DCS • Multiple cell phones, • E-PIRB, • AED • SOLAS first aid kit • 42 life vests • Fire extinguishers • Life saving flotation devices.

We had a wonderful private charter with Captain Dan and his crew! A beautiful morning of snorkeling and gorgeous coastline views. "We" even caught an ono on the return to harbor. Exciting! Captain cleaned, filleted, and shared it. Even provided a recipe- Fresh and Delicious! Will definitely book again.
Dan and Karen were amazing hosts! They were so kind and accommodating. Our family got to do everything we wanted. We went snorkeling and saw whales and dolphins swam with our boat. It was just a priceless experience. They had all the equipment you’d need. Highlllyyyyy recommend booking with them!
Captain Dan and his boat were amazing. Huge craft we took for 1/2 day fishing and snorkeling. Dan and Chris took us to a beautiful snorkel spot that felt secluded and private. Kids saw turtles, dolphins and even an octopus. Dan made booking easy and the whole process was a joy. Couldn’t recommend higher. If you have a chance, book a trip with Captain Dan.
Fantastic day on the water! It was even better than expected because Captain Dan and Karen took great care of us. We went to an amazing destination that we had all to ourselves for swimming and snorkeling. We also saw some dolphins as we drove around. We were celebrating my fiance's 30th birthday and had an unforgettable experience. Thanks Captain Dan!
I highly recommend renting this boat. We had the pleasure of having Bill as our captain and Shauna as the crew and they took such great care of us! We saw all kinds of beautiful fish and a momma and baby humpback whale! Thanks again Daniel for helping us get set up and being so accomplished!
