We had a fabulous day with Captain Porter! His ship was beautiful and will taken care of. The Captain made sure that we saw dolphins and sea turtles. Captain Porter also has fabulous stories of sailing around the world. If you are looking for an interment sailing trip book with Captain Porter
Captain Porter and the crew were excellent. Great conversation, good stories. We also got to see dolphins and keep up with them for almost an hour. I would highly recommend Captain Porter and his boat for a wonderful lowkey sunset sail.
We had an amazing sail on the Keet. It’s a beautiful boat, and the crew was welcoming and friendly. We didn’t get lucky with wildlife (except for turtles! So many turtles) but nothing beats sailing into Waimea Bay and going for a swim.
Would highly recommend this experience to anyone coming to the North Shore! Porter and his boat were awesome and we had an incredible time. Porter and his first mate Will were extremely knowledgeable, and made for a great trip. If you are considering a boat trip while here this is the move.
This was an awesome sail. A fabulous boat in a gorgeous setting but what made it really special was the captain, Porter, and first mate Will. They were fun to hang out with, answered our many questions, showed us beautiful beaches and even found dolphins and sea turtles. I highly recommend booking with Porter!
