  • Great time, good people, amazing views .. lost a hat but totally worth it. Got some amazing pictures, and memories for a lifetime  more »
  • Great crew that doubled as super fast bartenders. Great way to spend the afternoon or evening. Highly recommend.  more »
  • First impressions were not good. The lady who checked us in was extremely rude (she was upset about some policy change. She was yelling about it with another employee.) They demand you get there at 430pm and don't let you board till 5p. Honestly, you can get there at 445p and have plenty of time to spare. The rest of the crew made the experience amazing! Food was decent and the drink prices were super reasonable. I/we would do it again. I did not do this cruise but i would not recommend paying the extra money (if you have the go Oahu card) for the fireworks cruise. The Waikiki fireworks are about 5 minutes long and do not justify the extra $50.
  • Very nice crew (2 girls and 1 guy, Stephanie?, Leah, and Jacob?) and cool boat. Lots of fun. Great use of the Go Oahu pass
