    50' Power Catamaran Can Host Up To 49 Passengers In Honolulu

    We had went to Hawaii to celebrate my sister 40th birthday upon arrival we received the worse news that our little brother had passed we were so heart broken and devastated we wasn’t going to go on the boat ride anymore because we just was not in the mood for anything but we ended up going on the boat trip and it was definitely well needed. We got to release some stress and we even cried our eyes out and jumped into the beautiful blue waters. Thank you Captain Nate and Josh for some much needed time to relax and enjoy the waters. The swim was the best feeling ever. Also my husband had pulled a cramp while swimming and Josh to the rescue thank you so much for bringing my husband back to the boat. Definitely excellent life guard on deck.

    43ft “Aukai” Power Catamaran Rental in Waikiki, Honolulu, Hawaii

    I really didn't know what to expect when I booked this for 18 people but the experience went way beyond my expectations! Captain Devon made sure everyone was safe and having fun at all times. He explained everything thoroughly and gave us everything we needed to have the best experience. His boat was stocked with life vests, snorkels, flippers, snacks, coolers, EVERYTHING you need. This was definitely a highlight of our trip!

    The Captain and First Mate were among the nicest people we have met on the island. The perfect sunset ending to a great day on Oahu! Highly recommend saying to Turtle Canyon for snorkeling and having light food on the boat, enjoying golden hour photos at sunset and then heading back in the dark ti the city lights. Well worth it
