We went on the sunset cocktail cruise on New Years Eve. What a relaxing time we had sitting on the catamaran eating nibblies and having a cocktail or two. The crew were wonderful and made sure everyone was having a good time. We were picked up and taken back to Waikiki. Would recommend

We are a family of 2 teenagers and 10yr old. We travelled from Waikiki and it took an hour to and from but great to see the West side of the island. We did Snorkel and dolphin half day tour. Included breakfast and lunch and alcohol ( but bit early for us.) We saw dolphins, turtles and whales. Great fun,... More

We were able to go on the snorkel excursion. Crew was awesome! Very friendly, courteous, and knowledgeable. The boat was clean. Saw dolphins and had an amazing time snorkeling. Can't thank the crew enough. ***Thanks Captain Mike L, Kiah, Mike, and Yudi for making our trip to Hawaii so memorable!***

We enjoyed our morning with Hawaii Nautical. The crew was very friendly and accommodating. We did see whales, dolphins and turtles. Also, they were very helpful to the people who were new to snorkeling. They do provide life preservers!

Highlight of our Hawaiian vacation! 6 of us set out and we couldn't have had a better morning. Every detail was perfect; our friendly driver that picked us up at the hotel, the attentive crew, and the breathtaking crystal blue waters. The dolphin sightings happened right away followed quickly by whales breeching. We saw a few of turtles while snorkeling... More

Although we only saw glimpses of whales, this cruise was worth every penny. We paid the same price for a cruise in the North Shore that was a complete disappointment. Hawaii Nautical offered free drinks, snacks and such a fun crew!!!! They will be seeing us again!

Our trip was the 3 hour morning cruise on Jan 1, 2017. Gus was our driver and deck hand on the catamaran. All I can say is the whole crew was amazing, professional, safe and the best of the best. Myself and my family had an amazing time with them. We will definitely be using Hawaii Nautical on our next... More
