Their ad says ship wrecks, sea turtles and coral reefs. None of these was visible during their sunset cruise. Not worth the price paid.

Our family went on the sunset boat ride, it was one of the best boat rides we've done around Waikiki, and we have been on many. Both the captain and tour guide are friendly and knowledgeable. The tour guy especially, he explained to the guests everything from the history of the Hawaiian islands to marine life to whatever landmarks we happen to pass by. They even offered beer and wine for no additional charge. We had our 7 and 3 year olds plus an elderly grandpa with us, everyone had a great time. Great experience overall and highly recommended.

We loved our sunset tour. Ford was friendly and made the trip fun. From sharing interesting history about the islands to sharing Hawaiian Tequila! This was part of our honeymoon so cruising into the sunset was very romantic. I highly recommend taking this tour.

Ford and the Captain were the epitome of aloha spirit when they helped my Mom aboard with her wheelchair. They made the trip fun and relaxing. Mahalo!
