    Classic Beneteau First 43 Foot Monohull! Sail Away in Paradise! Kewalo Basin Honolulu!

    We had a awesome time. The staff was truly welcoming, warm and knowledgeable. I loved the way they made sure everyone was comfortable. I especially loved the way they embrace one of the younger passenger ensuring that she was comfortable. They gave her extra care to calm her down and within time she stopped crying and began to enjoy the sunset cruise. Thank you for a magical evening. The kids as well as the adults were very pleased.

    What a wonderful day! My husband requested a long sail for Father’s Day and we were fortunate to book with Capt Gaelyn on Kaikiwi. We had perfect weather and got some unexpected sailing instruction with time behind the wheel! We had great conversation and loved listening to her sailing stories while my teenage kids were sitting on the deck getting splashed by the waves. My husband said it was his best Father’s Day ever!

    Hands down we had one of the most memorable experiences we will undoubtedly reflect on for years to come! Min, Pete and all the guys (we were lucky enough to have a well pedigreed crew with Kurt, his son, Marcus and Edward) made our day on Hondo remarkable by allowing us to bask in the beauty of the waters in Wakiki Bay and soak up all the goodness of our surroundings. They went the extra mile with thoughtful touches like a speaker to listen to our music, fun water toys to occupy us and tasty little bites and beverages. The best part was it felt like we were on our own vessel and just hanging with some friends for a day on the open water taking in the sun over some laughs. I highly recommend you spend a day with your friends, family and those near & dear for a one-of-a-kind adventure! Thanks again to the Hondo crew for making us feel so at home on your boat!

    Sailing Charter On 48' Custom Made Sailing Catamaran In Honolulu, Hawaii

    Had an awesome time with my family on our 3 hour sail on a gorgeous afternoon. Captain Steve was focused on getting us around the blue waters and the crew of Kimberly and Savannah were super cool. They took care of us throughout and made sure we got to see some turtles, fish and a dolphin. It made so much sense for our group of 11 to rent a private boat versus getting on a boat with a bunch of strangers. We loved the experience and would recommend it to others!

    An awesome trip. Book four hours from 4:00-8:00 and get a trip that will be the highlight of your trip to Hawaii. Start with snorkeling to see fish and sea turtles, then some relaxing swimming, continue with some action packed sailing and end with a gorgeous sail into the sunset.
