Company Overview

The Makani Catamaran delivers a quality sailing experience. The friendly and professional staff will do their best to provide an enjoyable and leisurely sail. The Waikiki’s Turtle Canyon Snorkeling and Lunch Sail is a favorite of guests.

This is captain Brad. The boat is manned by three different captains throughout the week and the crew is different on different days of the week as well. You can tell they enjoy each other’s company by how they interact with each other.
