  • Captain Julie was great!! Staff was awesome, attentive and very friendly. The catamaran was gorgeous. Nice and clean. Sunset was amazing. Drinks, food and entertainment was fantastic. Thank you all very much. I will definitely recommend to anyone anytime. 🤙🏻

  • Had a great time! Captain and crew fantastic. Drinks flowing and beautiful sunset. We were slightly late but they called and timed the last tender for us to the catamaran. Couldn’t have been better! Even had food

  • Super fun, friendly staff, excellent food and drinks! Everyone had a great time! The bartender sang a beautiful song at sunset! Family friendly!

  • Crew was amazing! Can’t say enough about their hospitality. Would easily do this again. And the food served was a nice surprise

  • What a fun crew! Don't hesitate and just book it! You'll be happy you did. The crew was lighthearted and wanted to make sure everyone was having a good time. The drinks were flowing, and a teriyaki chicken dinner was served which we weren't expecting. The boat was a good size to accommodate the number of guests onboard. Be prepared to leave your shoes in a bucket with everyone else's shoes on the beach before you start.

  • The staff and crew were excellent and very helpful. I will recommend this activity to anybody that loves sailing.

  • Getting the opportunity to see wildlife, and see a sunset from the boat is something that I would highly recommend to anyone.

  • This sunset sail was so much fun. Captain Jay (all day) was very funny and personable. His crew was great as well especially Josh because he was very friendly and took the time to talk to us and get to know everyone on the boat. The best part was when Josh did the Hawaiian chant and explained the story behind it and also got everyone involved in the chant. Snacks and drinks were good too but they also offered us a Teri-chicken and rice bento which we were not expecting. That was a great surprise. My husband and I had a great time. It was relaxing and the sunset was beautiful. Would love to try other activities with Nautical Hawaii especially with this same crew.

  • Captain Cindy and her crew are awesome people. The exact location was difficult to find due to Viator wrong directions and made us over 45 mins late from check in and captain waited that whole time for us. I was truly shocked but that is what putting the customer #1 feels like. The vibe on the boat was great with laughter and offering to take pics from the crew. The food was delicious and to end with seeing the sunset was spectacular! Totally book with this company and you will not regret it

  • The crew were safe boaters. Good sense of humor. Helped take pictures. Explained things in detail. Provided nice drinks and canned beer

  • Beautiful experience, wonderful crew! Mike, Ethan and Rob were such a pleasure. Amazing way to see the sunset!

  • Great crew Enjoyed every minute. The captain is amazing I look forward to a return trip definitely recommend this for anyone

  • The crew was so awesome! Sunset was gorgeous! Saw 2 whales. Loved the drink selection and the bento box. Thanks for a great evening

  • Our tickets to this cruise were a gift for my birthday. There were only a few other passengers (a family with two young children) on board, alongside the captain and crew, which made this all the more fun. The captain asked my favorite song (as we were celebrating my birthday) and she played the Beatles through the entire cruise. The crew raised the sails and we cruised right along. The sunset was gorgeous, and we enjoyed cocktails and the crew set out some really yummy snacks. We've taken a few other sunset cruises before, but this was hands-down my favorite - we had an awesome time, and it was absolutely a birthday to remember. After our cruise, we returned to the bay, and watched the colors in the sky as the sun set. The crew was fantastic and took photos for everyone in front of the sunset. A fun and fantastic experience. Thank you Captain Cynthia and crew!! 10/10 would recommend!

  • We absolutely loved our experience!!! The catamaran noted it seated up to 49 people but there were 6 passengers on our trip! It was as if we had our own individual excursion! The crew was friendly and very personable. They attended to us offering drinks and snacks. We got some amazing pictures and we’ll never forget this wonderful experience!!!!

  • Staff was great. Wish they kept us out a little later as the sky still looks beautiful as we came in. Boarding and ride were great. Boat wasn’t over crowded. Drinks were great.

  • Captain and crew where phenomenal! They were knowledgeable, friendly, and fun! I would definitely go again. As a family of non drinkers it would be really nice to have more nonalcoholic drinks available.
