Great experience, very knowledgeable crew. Fun experience and we saw a lot of turtles. The breeze on the water was great, the views and overall experience was awesome! The trip was shorter than I had expected, but we did get to see some turtles so that was a high light and it was a perfect weather day.

The captain and first mate were very welcoming and fun. The ride was smooth and gorgeous! We had a wonderful view of the whole Waikiki coastline. It was much more beautiful than it is from the shore. I spotted two turtles, and my husband spotted a group of dolphins playing in the distance. We saw schools of fish too.
