This was a wonderful experience. The employees were courteous and friendly and hospitable. We saw whales and rocked out to good music while feasting our eyes on the gorgeous ocean and the sunset. The mai tai's were great. We want to go again.

Frequently Asked Questions
What if I am prone to seasickness?
Consider taking an over the counter motion sickness preventative before your cruise if you are worried about sea sickness. Just in case, motion sickness tablets and bracelets are available on-board for a fee.
How far in advance should I book this activity?
We recommend booking at least 3-4 days in advance. If you have very specific schedule requirements and are not flexible, please book sooner. Last-minute bookings are often possible, but availability is limited.
What should I wear to this activity?
Wear something comfortable. As you may have to walk through knee-high surf to board the catamaran, please do not wear anything you would not like to get wet below the knee. A light jacket is nice when the evening gets cooler.
What type of boat will be used?
The "Maitai" is a United States Coast Guard inspected and certified catamaran that seats up to 49 passengers, but is limited to fewer for maximum comfort! With a safe, quiet, environmentally-friendly propulsion system and a specially designed "wing mast," this catamaran reaches incredible speeds. Two large safety nets can be found at the front for lounging and relaxation, and clean bathrooms are available on board.
This was a wonderful experience. The employees were courteous and friendly and hospitable. We saw whales and rocked out to good ...music while feasting our eyes on the gorgeous ocean and the sunset. The mai tai's were great. We want to go again. more
We actually went on two sailing trips in Waikiki with two different companies and although both were very good this one was better.... The space on the boat was very roomie and the drinks were awesome - we just stuck to the specialty drink, but they offered beer and wine also. The music was one of the best parts - old school - jawaiian - reggae and the vibe was extremely relaxing!!! As the drinks continued to pour our group got real friendly waving and cheering to passing boats ... we were obviously having much more fun. Writing this I miss it and would definitely recommend this to everyone! Bottoms up! more
Julius & Lily
Confused about where to meet at the location at first and boat was about 15 minutes late so we were kind of worried if we were in ...the correct place. Cruise and staff were awesome. Mai tai's did not have much alcohol. more
We have been on this catamaran 4 times now, we absolutely love it! The staff is so nice and they make the BEST Mai Tai's as w...ell! We will always book with them when we visit Hawaii. more
This is the best experience on the catamaran. We enjoyed a lot. This is more than worth the price we paid for. The drinks were awe...some and all together a great experience event. more
We bought tickets from the site in Australia and thought we were getting a "Sunset/fireworks cruise" however when we g...ot there we were on a moonlight cruise. (Which is the one we wanted. I think your site needs to clarify the differnece in the two tours a bit better. The sunset cruise went out at 5.00 and the one we were on was 6.30. Having said that we were placed on the right one as we wanted to see the fireworks which were fantasic. The staff were amazing and we had a very memorable time. I would highly recommend this activity to all but just get clarification as to what cruise you actually want to be on. D&D, Melbourne Australia. October 2012 more
This was the second time I went on this cruise... Love the atmosphere and the crew is supper friendly. The Reggae music and firewo...rks were the best but the Mai Tai drinks are definitely the best I've had!!! Overall I totally loved it and will do it a third and fourth time!!! more
I forgot the names of the fellas operating the catamaran, but they were a great host. They hooked us up with a great time, mai-ta...is (as much as you can drink), and fireworks. Just a great night, relaxing with the wife and chillin' out listening to great Hawai'ian reggae. more
We were staying at the Sheraton for a friend's wedding and decided that this was close and a perfect way to spend an evening,... and boy were we were right! The delicious and bottomless maitais made for a great night and the best way to enjoy Hawaii's signiature sunshine. The boat boarded right from the beach almost directly in front of our hotel, and from there we cruised along Waikiki for unbelievable views. The crew was excellent and this is a must do for anyone wanting to go sailing in Hawaii. Enjoy! more
Fantastic Cruise. Too bad there were no fireworks on this friday night. Otherwise, everything was brilliant!
Ian and Clarry were awesome. Laid back with the right attitude. Made sure everyone was comfortable and attended to. Very easy p...rocess to get on the catamaran. Great music played during the cruise. I recommend this cruise for those who want to have a few drinks and meet a few new friends. more
John from Louisville
This catamaran sunset cocktail cruise was very enjoyable. Mai Tai's were great... My husband is still talking about them. Cr...ew was awesome. Boat was comfortable and fireworks were actually really good for a random Tuesday night. Would definitely recommend! more
would do this again in a hart beat! It is one in a life time experience the no words that can describe
Very nice way to spend a Friday night in Waikiki. Generous with drinks and making sure everyone had a good time. The lights from... the shoreline made a beautiful sight. more
My husband ,son and I really loved the sunset sail. The views were most spectacular and the Mai Tai's were very good. The cre...w was very nice and really wanted to make our sail most memorable. We would do this again if we ever get back to Hawaii more
I went on the Sunset sail, it was Amazing. I enjoyed my sail over Oahu Island. We even saw a whale. Beautiful Hawaii. Mahalo
An absolutely fun-filled, relaxing sail. The crew were welcoming and attentive--you could charge twice the price for this cruise ...and it would be packed every time. We will certainly do this again when we return to Hawaii. more
Pati & Carl
This catamaran sail was great! The crew made us all feel comfortable and safe. Drinks were free and the MaiTais were very tasty.... The Captain moored us in a great place to see the fireworks and then sailed towards Waikiki to see a beautiful moon rise. Great tour all the way around. more
we had the best time , everything was great and the night was perfect we would highly recommend this adventure
I joined the sunset sail with my family. The views were perfect, and my Mum and Dad really enjoyed it, it is interesting to see th...e sunset on catamaran with a bottle of Maitai. The price is reasonable and you will not regret. more
We had a blast on the catamaran from start to finish. We looked into the dinner cruises but were drawn to the quaintness and al-in...clusive drinks on the catamaran. The staff were extremely friendly and helpful to show you a good time. The sail included a ride past Diamond Head and then returned toward the sunset over the Pacific. Seeing the many sailboats, paddleboarders, and surfers along the way was fun. We would definitely do it again. more
What a great ride! Crew was great and music was awesome!! We had a blast!!
Had a FABULOUS TIME!!! Thoroughly enjoyed the cruise!! The crew was energetic and courteous!! Would highly recommend and defini...tely return!!!! more
Barbara Sue Rhyne
This was one of our favorite excursions. My husband, kids, brother and niece were very glad I booked this. The scenery was wonde...rful, the sunset was gorgeous, and the two crew members were so much fun. My kids are 26,24,and 21, and they still had to get pictures behind the wheel of the boat. I would recommend this even if you do not want to drink the unlimited maitia's! We sailed around Diamond-head Crater and saw the lighthouse which was really cool. more
This was our first booked activity and it was amazing. Our captain was the best and the sunset was gorgeous. A relaxing, fun, an...d beautiful sail at sunset. The perfect introduction to Hawaii. more
A fun relaxing evening to put it simply. First there's the no hassle boarding right off the beach as the catamaran comes rig...ht up onto the beach. There may be a line but boarding is quick with lots of room for everyone once on board. You get underway very quickly, a brief safety talk, and then your motoring out past the waves to station yourself for the fireworks show. Drinks are as free flowing as you want distributed by the crew of one in a very efficient manner. The fireworks show looking back at the beach is pretty good - how can it not be- your on a boat in the Pacific, looking at skyline of Waikeke and it's 82 degrees!!! After the fireworks the captain raises the sails and you cruise along the coast. BUT - the best part of the trip is talking with the other passengers- my family met a group from New Zealand and we spent the time talking about differences between the two cultures as similiar as they may be to each other. We have 17 year old twins (boy & girl) and they also had lots of fun !! The price was a very good value, the time at sea was about right- Highly recommended!! more
The crew was amazing. The fireworks were awesome!! It started out with a booking that was fast and informative. We then started ou...t on the water. Smooth sailing, and the captain was very friendly and personable. They said that the maitais were the best on the island. They weren't kidding!! Overall very well done! A must do, must see, must experience! more
We had a wonderful time on the cruise. We met some very nice people, enjoyed the scenery, and even saw some whales. The crew tre...ated us like Kings and kept the drinks flowing. The ship was full, but had plenty of space to mill around and get a good view. more
Great staff, beautiful scenery, we even saw a whale breech! Highly recommend this cruise!
Fantastic time!! The sailing was great and the drinks were the best. Would recommend to anyone traveling to Hawaii.
What a night! It took 46 years of marriage to finally get to Hawaii and enjoyed it to the fullest including the romantic cruise wa...tching the fireworks. Perfect night weather and sea conditions. Beautiful shorline with the colorful night lights. Can't wait to return...hopefully sooner than 46 more years! more
"Sad to leave"
nice and relaxing, wish it was a little longer. Drink and crew were very good. Had a lot of fun.
Amazing time, fun atmosphere! We went as a family of 4 adults a 7yr old & 1yr old. I wasn't too sure if it would be child...ren friendly but it was. Well worth the money. It was a great start to our vacation. The Maitais were great but be careful they creep up on you. The captain & bartender were amazing and attentive. Just bring a light coat because it is at night and of course with the wind it could get chilly but good thing I read a review and went prepared. Loved it!!! more
The Maitai sunset cruise was lots of fun! Drinks were flowing, the crew was so chill and the boat brought us some gorgeous views o...f the coastline and the sunset. A great addition to any trip to Waikiki. more
This is a MUST do for everyone and anyone. We did the fireworks cruise and it was incredible. The staff were amazing and the drin...ks were awesome. This was the perfect way to end our week in Hawaii. more
Incredible views of Honolulu & Diamond head, nice breeze, a fun crew, and all you can drink Mai Tais, what could be better? ... My wife & I were really glad we chose the sunset catamaran over the night (fireworks) one, as it got a bit chilly after the sunset... especially if you happen to get wet. If you enjoy being at the front of the catamaran, I would recommend a swimsuit, as you'll probably get wet. Also, if you choose the Friday night catamaran, just be aware that fireworks are only about 10 minutes long at around 7:45pm. Otherwise, this is a must, enjoy it! more
sunset was beautiful, staff was friendly and fun, music was great, and drinks were strong! loved it!
We took the sunset cruise on our last night in Waikiki. It was such a fun way to end our trip! The crew was great and took great c...are of us aboard the boat. It was such a relaxing way to spend the evening. If we lived closer, I would take this cruise all the time! more
I went on the fireworks cruise with a friend of mine and it was definitely a trip to remember. The drinks were fantastic and the c...rew was so friendly. It was definitely something I would do again and I did! Except the next time I did the sunset cruise. The fireworks were spectacular from the boat and was worth it. more
When our original fireworks sail was canceled, we were told this sail would be comparable. However, when the confirmation was sen...t it clearly stated we would not see the fireworks regularly scheduled on Friday evenings since we would be ashore before the fireworks began. We were devastated. BUT... much to our surprise and NOT mentioned on line or the confirmation/voucher documents, we sailed amidst the local sailboat club's Friday sunset "race". It was absolutely breathtaking to sail with several other boats in the sunset. The crew make some awesome Maitai's too! Enjoy!!! more
Crew was great, they treated you like long time friends. The drinks were awesome and not the watered down ones you get with othe...r all you can drink tours. Part of the fun was getting on and off the boat. Only negative comment was that the head had a see through hatch, but I would do this trip again. I highly recommend this sail trip. more
Great maitais and wonderful evening to go sailing!!!
My first time in Hawaii and on a any type of boat. At first I was hesitant but so glad we had this unforgettable experience. Capti...ain, crew, music, view and Mai'tai cocktail were awesome. Highly recommend! more
It's awesome!!!!! And very nice. It's my first time get on board, and I will never forget this experience in my life. T...hank to staff on board!!! more
The captain and staff were amazing and made the night even better than expected! The sights were amazing, catamaran was enjoyabl...e, music was hopping and the drinks were flowing! We can't wait to go back. more
This cruise was awesome, the staff was very entertaining and Mai Tai's went down smoothly, very tasty! Would recommend this c...ruise to everyone! more
Nancy from Kansas
Excellent experience worth every bit unlimited drinks very friendly and happy crew and the sunset was beautiful a must do
My wife and I took the Maitai Sunset Sail for our wedding anniversary. Our crew, Ian and Lindsey, made the sail fun and Lindsey m...ade sure that our hands never went without a glass. Water was beautifully calm, view from the waterfront was spectacular, and the fireworks just topped it off. I highly recommend this outing to anyone. more
We went on the Friday night fireworks cruise. It was great! Then we were told unlimited booze. What a great surprise! Great crew ...and great music all made for a fun time. Oh, the fireworks were good too! more
Ed and Jackie
I joined this by my self. The clue were really sweet and nice. And of corse the sunset was really gorgeous ! I like the dress co...rd was barefoot:) It was my favorite experience in Honolulu. more
Great time, great views, and great crew. This was an amazing experience. The drinks were delicious.
This is the third time I have been on the Maitai Catamaran Sunset Cocktail and Friday Fireworks sail. It's a great way to see... the Hilton Hotel Fireworks and Honolulu skyline. Great crew. more
My daughter and I had a great time on the Friday night sunset cruise! Such a wonderful way to begin our time on Oahu! More than en...ough drinks and the music added to the fun! more
My husband had a great time during the Fireworks cruise. Even though it felt like a lot of people were on board, everyone had a gr...eat vantage point for the fireworks show. Afterwards, we enjoyed boating, the views, and unlimited maitais (as well as other alcoholic drinks). The crew was friendly and check in on us, check in/check out was easy, but I would recommend bringing a light sweater because it does get chilly at night! more
Should be adults only since it is open bar, but it is amazing. A must do activity.
Went on the fireworks cruise with my boyfriend. We both had a blast. The Mai Tais were flowing, the scenery was beautiful, and wat...ching the fireworks over the water was awesome. The boat crew was friendly. I highly recommend. more
Great adventure, cool crew, great mai tais fantastic view and on time for fireworks show
We really enjoyed it and had the Best experience in Hawaii . The music and drinks were perfect. Thanks!!!!
I really like the cruise. I've been on it a couple if times. They always go out of their way to make sure everyone has a good... time. The first time we saw whales, the second time we raced another cruise and everybody got involved. The views of Waikiki and Diamond head are amazing. This is the way to start out a vacation to Honolulu. more
We really enjoyed our sunset cruise and true to say one of the best maitai cocktails we ever had!
Were initially concerned when we saw the cat and number of people going on the cruise however once on board there was ample room. ...We both had great time the cruise was smooth and fireworks excellent, the crew entertaining and efficient certainly looked after everyone on board. Would recommend it if you want to experience something a little different and have some fun. May not appeal to everyone as there was a bit of drinking but nothing offensive. Well done! more
The sunset sail was a great way to end our week on Oahu. Fun crew, great drinks, beautiful sunset and gorgeous views of Waikiki an...d Diamond Head. They gave us a great suggestion for dinner after the sail as well. Thanks for the making our final night so memorable. more
The sunset/cocktail cruise was a blast. Captain and ship mate were great. Made the trip fun and exciting!! Got some great shots o...f the beach from the boat and the sunset was AMAZING! So cool seeing it from atop the deep blue. Definitely recommend it for a fun night away from the hustle bustle of Waikiki. Great bang for you buck!! (try the maitai with champagne...but be careful...they are dangerous!) more
Rachel and Mike
My husband and I went on this cruise as part of our honeymoon. It far exceeded our expectations! The staff was not only knowledgea...ble but incredibly fun and friendly. We felt so much Aloha. We enjoyed it so much we are going back again next year and doing this again. We are bringing friends this time! more
A great way to watch sunset from the water, friendly, informative & fun crew, great drinks!
We had a wonderful sail, and said we could have done it every night of our trip! Unlimited MaiTai's, friendly crew and crowd,... it was the perfect way to start the evening! So beautiful and relaxing! more
Great time and good drinks!!!! Great crew and a good crowd was on broad
Great sunset sail. Music was awesome and views were even more amazing. Captain and bartender were also equally amazing which made ...out sail even more enjoyable. Would definitely recommend and do this again on my next trip. Worth every penny. more
This is the second time we have had an excursion with these guys, last Sept 2016 we did the Sunset one ( sensational !!) This time... the fireworks and had the best night. can't wait to come back next year and do it again !!! more
Fireworks, free Maitai's, and sailing at night along Waikiki beach. How can you go wrong? You can't. This is the best Wa...ikiki attraction for the bucks. And the drinks were excellent. OPEN BAR!!!! Mahalo. more
This had to be one of the highlights of our holiday! Relaxing, amazing and the coktails are beautiful!
These guys have got it down, great drinks, music selection, and beautiful views! Their maitais are delicious too!
Katie & Ben
I cannot recommend this sunset cruise enough! My friends and I had an amazing time. The crew and captain were so friendly and welc...oming and created such a fun atmosphere on the boat. The views were unbelievably beautiful, we had perfect weather and a gorgeous sunset. The price is more than fair considering the length of time on the water (1.5 hours) and the fact that the drinks are included. I would absolutely do it again! more
Everything was as promised...and better! Would definitely recommend!
Wow what a great way to see the fireworks over the Hilton Hawaiian on a Friday night in Honolulu. The staff on the MaiTai Catamara...n was wonderful and the fresh MaiTais were delicious and refreshing!!!! more
Mike and Kathy L
I treated my husband to this sunset cruise, and honestly it was the best decision ever. The crew were amazing and the maitais were... refreshing and quite good. You get a perfect view over Waikiki Beach and the Diamond Head. Thanks guys for an amazing time. We will definitely choose you again when we're back in Hawaii. more
Brilliant evening and entertaining crew. Love the drinks music and views
Great fireworks, sailing, and Maitais! Definitely do it again.
Best firework sail on the island!! Would definitely do it again and recommend it to any and everyone!!
Absolutely unreal! Worth every penny. Great music, great crew, just beautiful. Get ready to get splashed! Next time I would tak...e an anti nausea capsule as it was a little choppy heading out. more
We had an amazing time!! Unlimited Mai-Tai cocktail and drinks, great staff and nice music while cruising Waikiki beach!! What els...e to expect from this tour? We absolutely recommend it to people that want to have an unforgettable Friday night at Oahu!! more
Everything was great! The bartender, lifeguard, deck lady Alex (I think was her name) was awesome! Great drinks and music! Thanks ...for a fantastic time! We will be back more
L and M
What an awesome way to see the Friday Fireworks. The crew on board were great fun. We thought the drinks package was great value ...& would highly recommend it. more
Very relaxing. Beautiful sunset, my husband & I enjoyed it very much!
My wife and I were stoked when the boat beached onto shore. It was funny initially watching folks coming off the last ride bc the ...waves rocked the boat and splashed onto them. But it's expected, it was fun nonetheless. We did the Fireworks ride and it was just AWESOME!!! To watch it from the ocean is definitely something everyone should experience. We'd totally do it again! more
A fun and relaxing way to see the sunset and have a couple of cocktails. Boat very stable
My fellow bridesmaids and I took 25 women on the cocktail cruise as part of a bachelorette party. Everyone had a great time and ra...ved about the experience! The crew was great as were the drinks! Highly recommend for a group or family!! more
The crew was friendly and fun. Great time and great mai this! Totally recommend!
It is a must do in Waikiki, great crew and sail, we had a beautiful night on the ocean with beautiful fireworks from Hilton villag...e. more
My daughters and their families and I all went on the Mai Tai sunset cruise! The boat captain let my 13 year old “drive the boat” ...for a couple of minutes so we could get a picture! The Mai Tais and sodas for the young ones were unlimited. The sunset views were spectacular! Take this cruise! It’s great for all ages!!! more
My sister and I booked this event to close our Hawaiian vacation. From the time we checked in to the time we walked off the boat, ...we enjoyed the friendliness of the staff working the event. Ian was a charismatic captain, and Alex was a very friendly bartender! Loved that this was a casual, barefoot experience. The views were great! Would absolutely recommend this event to friends and family. more
My husband and I booked the fireworks sail for our last night in Hawaii and it was a great way to end our trip. The music was righ...t, the fireworks were a beautiful sight, and my cup of maitai was constantly filled by the shirtless bartender! We would definitely book this again when we come back and maybe bring a few friends with us next time. :) more
Great crew, lots of drinks, awesome photo opportunities of the sunset and Waikiki. We even saw a whale.
Third Mai Tai cruise and once again did not disappoint. First was the Sunset in 2016, Fireworks 2017 and Fireworks again 2018 !! H...ad a great time, drinks were fabulous as were the staff... See you again in 2019 !!!! more
i bought this as a gift for a family holiday, we had the best time on board and the crew were amazing! We even managed to see 2... whales! more
With so many activities in HI being budget-breakers, this one delivers a really fun, relaxing evening at a very reasonable price. ... The mai tai's on board were enjoyable and refreshing. The crew was great, and genuinely seemed to enjoy their jobs, which made the experience all the more fun. The music was appropriately upbeat and fun. I thnk I could be pursuaded to do this nightly! more
I thought I bought and paid for the sunset cruise but it was actually was the moonlight cruise with my young grandchildren that ...actually slept thru most of it. It is too late for little kids. The fireworks were good though. more
This is a very fun time for a fair price. The catamaran is basic (i.e. no cabin or bathrooms) but it's a great sail with a cr...ew that seems to love their jobs. The mai tais are good and plentiful, and it was great to see the sunset from the water. The sail goes out early enough that you get back in time to go to dinner, and you're in a wonderful mood when you return. I'd definitely recommend this cruise to people who want a fun time seeing Waikiki and Diamond Head from a new perspective. more
JoAnn from Tucson
We had a very pleasant sunset sail on the MaiTai. The crew was great, the free flowing maitai's tasty, and the sunset beautif...ul. We managed to see a few whales as well. A fun time. I'd do it again. more
We had Lots of fun. The Crew of two worked well together and was very friendly and kept the Mai Tai's coming. I loved the ch...oice of music as we sailed. This is a must do !! more
We enjoyed the chill and fun atmosphere. There are two crew: one captain and one lifeguard/firstmate/bartender
A pleasant late afternoon! Good crew and good company. Beautiful views!
This was great! A very fun evening cruise with friends during sunset. The mai tais were delicious and staff was friendly and fun. ...My only complaint is that it seemed too short! more
Beautiful, relaxing cruise. Incredibly helpful crew, especially helping the older folks on board. Bathroom is only for the brave.... more
We had a great time on our sunset cruise! The staff were friendly and helpful, and although the cruise set off a little late this ...had no impact on our evening. We would highly recommend this activity when in Waikiki, I think it is a 'must do'. more
Good cruise but was disappointed that it stated Fireworks and they brought us back to land to watch it and not on the catamaran wh...ere we would have gotten a great view. Don't advertise fireworks and then don't deliver. We could have paid the lesser price and got the same thing. Just sayin!! more
The cruise was good, the weather, not so much. The captain and bartender were very friendly, and entertaining.
This was a great evening activity for a Friday. The check-in process was super-simple, we even had extra time so we went to the sm...all bar to the right of the check-in stand. Then we lined up and where able to board the vessel. I recommend shorts, as this is a barefoot cruise. I got a little wet but others weren't so fortunate. The cruise was a quite ride out, then down to Diamond Head and back near Magic Island to see the fireworks. Overall a great experience. more
Waikiki was the destination of our honeymoon and a Fireworks Cocktail Cruise sounded perfect! I didn't anticipate how DARK it... would be when arriving to the boat. It should have been obvious...but I didn't think about it. It was cumbersome to board the boat due to the tide and needing to board from another area a catamaran had left from. This meant we had to walk over a concrete divide that had been slightly eroded to access the ship. Was a little tricky. The staff for the event was great. Full of energy and kept everyone informed of what was happening. The boat was full of happy tourists ready to party. Drinks flowed quickly and if you were adept enough to weave through the crowd in bobbing waves--there was not problem in accessing beverages. Since it was super dark, it was hard to see how to get around the boat. We unfortunately sat by the toilet on deck which was hysterical. It basically was a clear plastic top that opened and you climbed down stairs that felt like a propped up ladder. Inside it was really tight to move (duh, it's a catamaran). My husband said he didn't know how women would actually use it if they needed to sit. Best of all was---since it was so dark, the only light you could see was from the toilet; and if you were down there...EVERYONE could look down and see you. It was one of my favorite take-aways from the experience. Overall the cruise was fun, staff was great, and drinks were solid. Hard part is having only a few minutes of fireworks...and then floating around in the dark with a boombox and sitting next to the bathroom. If I was to book a cocktail cruise again...I'd choose the happy hour to enjoy the sunset. more
What a fun sail with flowing MaiTai's and beautiful views of Waikiki Beach! The vantage point was incredible to see the Hilto...n's fireworks show, and the cruise was not overcrowded. The only caveat - they tell you for sure to wear something that can get wet and they are not kidding. Getting on seemed fairly easy, but getting off, the tide seemed to be a little more surly and we got a little wetter (over our knees for sure). Luckily, we were only walking back to our hotel. Overall, a great end to our first wonderful day in Hawaii! more
My husband and I booked this cruise during our stay in Hawaii in December. I wasn't sure what to expect. The crew were very p...olite and very accommodating! The ride was relatively calm and very enjoyable. The fireworks were spectacular! I would recommend for anyone who has the opportunity to do this cruise to take advantage of it! more
The crew for this catamaran was awesome, super friendly and great people to talk to my wife and I truly enjoyed ourself. I would s...ay we had one of the best seats to watch the fireworks more
Wonderful experience. Yummy drinks and a lot of fun.
A really enjoyable evening - even though the weather was awful! But you can't help that! A great view of the Fireworks and t...he lights along Waikiki - awesome to view a different perspective! Super friendly staff Plenty of drinks - was a little worried at first - I was traveling with my daughter - there was a Hen's night and a Stag night on board - thought I may have booked the wrong type of trip - a booze boat - I was really relieved - everyone was having a great time, without being stupid! Would highly recommend this activity - it was one of our hi lights! more
We loved the view of fireworks over the HHW, and the Waikiki Beach skyline. After seeing the fireworks from shore, we wanted to t...ake this trip on our return visit. It was worth it. The crew was fun and the mai tais were plentiful. Our only difficulty was finding the launch. Not being local, we weren't sure how to get to this spot. Street directions would have been helpful. more
The instructions and directions to the location where we could park was not specific for those of us who had never been in the are...a before (we paid $26 to park). Our emailed confirmation told us to check in at 6:45pm and the catamaran would set sail at 7pm. Our group was first to arrive with plenty of time for checking in. Our catamaran did not arrive to pick us up until 7:15pm and it took another 10 minutes after that to get us all checked in to board. Once onboard, we realized the mai tais were weak so we drank beer instead. This was a very slow-paced cruise. We would like to come back but are more likely to experience a different catamaran cruise than this one. more

Missed the boat by 5 minutes. Couldn't find exact location. Tried to move the tour to another night but no response or effort.... Didn't get refunded and over all lost $200. We are tourists and made an honest mistake on our end. Wishes there was an effort on there end. more
Was not relaxing at all. You stand around waiting for over 30 minutes to board. We boarded what I thought was an overcrowded cat...amaran then we waited around while 6 other people paid at the last minute so they could squeeze on. Very awkward way of serving the cocktails. They might well have said "can I throw you a brewsky". Would not recommend this activity. more
