Awesome crew, awesome views, 10/10!
Janelle_F, May 2024
The crew at Moana Waikiki were so friendly and made the trip a lot of fun! We met some awesome people on board who were also experiencing this for the first time and we all had an incredible time. As someone who gets seasick easily, this sail could not have been smoother (also thanks to some Dramamine) and I enjoyed every second of the breathtaking views of Waikiki and the sunset. Even though there were some clouds and a bit of rain, the crew were there to help us with whatever we needed and navigated our trip with no problem. 10/10 would recommend to anyone wanting a fun, fairly inexpensive, and memorable activity!
Friendly and fun crew
William_W, May 2024
Crew was friendly and laid back. They were very helpful and caring. Did their best to make sure everyone was taken care of. They tried to get best views for the sunset.
A bit lackluster
Kenton_T, May 2024
I thought this was okay borderline poor. The crew was a mixed blend of some great and friendly, others were rather off-putting. The waiver requirement was not explained well; I noticed some passengers were informed and some weren’t leaving some folks to scramble before boarding. There is a QR code at the dock that each person must scan which directs to website to fill out liability waiver. The parking situation is not as terrible as they make it out to be. Lots of paid spots available and parking rate is reasonable. The tours decision to let some folks pre-board 15 minutes early seemed pretty silly. All remaining passengers got to view about 5-6 people board and sit on the boat and have a drink while left standing in the sun. Drinks on board not great. The cruise itself including the duration and views was nice. Appreciated that some crew members offered to take photos for us. This is a nice vessel I just think customer experience needs to be more thoughtful.

Moana cruise
Sheri_P, May 2024
Excellent crew and tour. Lasted approx 2 hours in order to see sunset. They do leave on time so make sure you’re there on time. Saw 2 people left behind as we had already taken off as it was 5:08 when they showed up. They do prepare you for that!! 1st drink is complimentary then 8.00 a drink.
Amazing Sunset Sail

I enjoyed the relaxing experience. Other customers were in a party mood, I was opposite and still liked enjoying the breeze and sunny weather.
Fun evening
Julianna_T, May 2024
We were here with family for my daughter’s graduation, an evening sunset cruise was her one request. This cruise did not disappoint. The crew was awesome, and we had a great time.
Awesome experience
Michaela_W, May 2024

Family sunset cruise
Paige_P, May 2024
Great family experience and great crew. Sunset was so beautiful to see from the boat on the water. The drinks were delicious. The crew let my 3 year old son get pictures “driving” the boat. He was ecstatic. This was our first sunset cruise and it went wonderfully and we will for sure go again. This is a great choice for any family or even couples.
Could be more understanding
Karen_C, May 2024
The sunset was beautiful, but things went downhill when there as a minor misunderstanding from the captain. Family felt a bit seasick and one family member went to the restroom. The captain and one of the crew members made sure the family member isn't vomiting inside the restroom or doing #2. I understand they have to check on others, but when I tried to explain that my mother didn't throw up in the toilet, the captain repeatedly said," it's not cool, it's not cool, my job and the crew's job is not to clean up etc etc." This was in front of all the tourists. I recommend that he listen carefully before jumping to conclusions and reprimanding us. He did go in to check the toilet and like we explained, there was no vomit or #2. Also there was little interaction with tourists throughout the ride. It was just loud music all the way and we sat there for 1.5 hour. One time experience is enough.
Best of Several Fun Excursions on Oahu
Peggy_H, May 2024
Beautiful sunset cruise. Great crew, great drinks, gorgeous views. If you get seasick or carsick, this might not be as thrilling for you, but if you enjoy the waves, you'll love it! Grip the deck with your bare feet, the rail with one hand and your drink with the other. Then relax and enjoy the experience! One thing to point out - be prepared to sign a waiver when you arrive (QR code at the dock) and have the proof of signature for each person ready to show electronically. (I think paper versions are available, but will take longer, so be plenty early as to not hold up the full boat!)
Sunset Sail and Views of Honolulu/Waikiki/Diamondhead - April 2024
pedro_y, May 2024
Memorable sail because of the attentive crew and the spectacular views of Honolulu/Waikiki/Diamondhead and the sunset.
Big Hawaiian Roller Coaster Ride
David_D, May 2024
Good music, great drinks, amazing crew, unforgettable experience. The captain and his team have an outstanding sense of humor and personalities. They're friendly and courteous with each of their guests. The trip is a perfect amount of time and distance to really take in the southern part of the island and Diamond Head. The sail back is much smoother than the way out! If you want a fun Hawaiian experience on a boat, THIS is the package for you. Hang onto your belongings & get something to keep any electronics dry - the ocean doesn't return lost goods!
Take this catamaran sale it’s well worth it!
Ron_M, May 2024
Great catamaran ride. Beautiful coastline, beautiful crew, knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. Thank you for the experience. Highly recommend.
Fun boat, great people fun times
Anthony_P, May 2024
It was a great experience. I came on here because I'm celebrating my 50th birthday. My friends and I enjoyed the crew. The water was rough, but I felt safe. I would recommend this to a friend.
