Overview

Gemini is a 64' luxury catamaran designed to carry 75 passengers, but limit her to carry only 49, making Gemini Ka'anapali's most spacious catamaran. Gemini is also the only catamaran on Maui to have viewports in each hull to experience the whales, dolphins and amazing marine life without getting wet! We offer year round Snorkeling Adventures, seasonal Whale Watches and Sunset Sails. Discover Aloha on the Ocean!
