"We went on the sunset boat ride and it was amazing! Of course the scenery was beautiful and breathtaking. The staff was super fun as well and made the ride very enjoyable too. From mixing up delicious drinks to squirting my 7 year old with water gun! Everyone in the family had a great time."

The sunset sail was the highlight of our stay in Honolulu. It was very windy so we were happy it wasn’t cancelled. The staff on Catamaran were very social, friendly, interacted with all guests. They took numerous photos with different poses for guests. They offered this for everyone which was so nice. Cocktails were much better than expected. I would highly recommend this. I plan to do this sail again next time I visit Honolulu.

Last minute decision to take the Saturday evening sunset cruise. Took a bit of time to get organized and out, but it was a clean and safe ride out on the ocean for sunset and amazing moon rise. No commentary or tour aspect to it. Nice 2 hours.

My husband and I really enjoyed our sunset cruise with Makani. The boat was clean and the staff were very friendly! Our trip to Hawaii would've felt incomplete without a harbor cruise and Makani definitely delivered!

The catamaran was very nice. The view of Diamond Head was fantastic and the sunset and city lights were amazing. We even saw some breaching humpback whales.
