I loved everything about this tour! Since the moment we were received by the crew until we said goodbye. I love history so much and getting to learn about this amazing culture sitting on a Hawaiian catamaran was just a dream! I went with my husband and we experienced a very romantic sunset listening Hawaiian music! I can’t recommend this tour enough! 💛

Loved: Hawaii, special evening, no crowds, such fun with integrity and truly unparalleled expert knowledge? Hosts: captain Robert, deckhand Evan and expert artists/educators were super impressive-warmth, honesty, unique skills, ocean smarts, abs ensuring each guest is attended to with courtesy and aloha respect? This excursion had all. “Expensive” ? Yeah. Worth it cuz: not fake tourist-y and felt cared for and actually part of experience? 150% yes. Just do it!

This is a very interesting and traditional experience, if you want to learn about the Hawaiian culture and food then this is for you. The crew was very friendly and knowledgeable, however it was not my cup of tea and for that reason I did not like it.

Authentic old Hawaii

This was an educational experience, not a booze cruise. Hawaiian educators taught us some music and words, helped us pound poi, and fed us some authentic foods. Anela and our other guides, and Captain Rob, made it magical.

What a beautiful and memorable experience with Captain Rob & crew. Learn from on board historian, mele's, food & drink, and Oahu views from the ocean. My brother lives in Oahu, and he found it just as interesting as I did! Departed feeling relaxed and one step closer to feeling like a local. Keep up the great work!

A fabulous trip for everyone! The food we helped prepare was fabulous! We were entertained with the stories and history our guides shared. The music was beautiful and we enjoyed learning to play Hawaiian musical instruments! And oh that sunset!!! It was much more than we expected and money well-spent. A memorable evening with a very pleasant and knowledgeable crew!

Outstanding. Invited on board by the practioner -singing to the Hawaiian God's, blowing the sea horn to the East , North, South and west....then sailing out to sea. The Polynesian Canoe is a Hawaiian Journey through the past to the present.
