Our captain Ron was super friendly, knowledgeable and most importantly, very kind to my old parents who knew limited English. Service was great and every moment was enjoyable. The lunch setup was absolutely delightful and delicious. It was so worth the price - for a small group, you get the customized experience that would last in everyone's memories.

My family and I had a great time. We enjoyed the privacy and Chad and Kevin were great. It was a beautiful day. We explored, SUP, ...kayaked and floated. The only suggestion is that the details of where to meet need to be more explained. more

Very nice, beautiful scenery and the captain was very kind

Mr. Anonymous

Our family did the private boat charter when on vacation in Oahu just a couple of weeks ago, after booking from the Internet and j...ust hoping we would get a tour that we would not forget. We were not disappointed at all, not realizing this company catered largely for Japanese tourists we were so impressed with our charter. Our captain was just so friendly and informative and made us feel very welcome and was great fun too. We will certainly be coming back again one day and booking another charter and would highly recommend to anyone that wants to treat themselves to something special and spoil themselves on a captain Bruce charter. Thank you so much for your hospitality. Kind regards, the Hortons from Down Under ! more

Very experienced and friendly guides who were also very prepared with hot beverages and rain coats when it got cold and rainy. Sho...wed us lots of sea life including turtles. Nice spread of snacks and drinks. Comfortable and clean boat. We enjoyed their conversation and everyone had a great time! We hope to do it again. more

Captain Carol was outstanding!!! Had a great time even though the weather was questionable. Great service, food, music and a lot o...f laughs. Even the turtles had a great time. more

DRL

The weather wasn't in our favor but that didn't keep the crew from showing us a great time. They were warm and friendly ...and catered to our every need including providing jackets on an unusually cool day. The sandbar is a must see and the snorkel reef had plenty of fish and turtles to make it a good snorkel spot. The boat was very nice and comfortable. I highly recommend booking this activity. more
