Great job

They did a great job. Only thing we would fix would be to turn up music a little and put the sail up like the picture.

Fabulous. Only complaint is that it was advertised as a sailboat. That’s the reason we chose it. I was pretty disappointed that it was not a sailboat. I love sailing. But the whales and great captain/crew made up for it.

Aloha, Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback about your Pau Hana Sunset Cruise. We're happy to read that you enjoyed your interactions with our Captain and Crew, and got a chance to see all those Humpbacks. Ocean Sports operates 2 sailing catamarans and 1 power catamaran. During our Whale Watch Season (Dec. 1 - April 15), due to guest request, we often prioritize whale watching over sailing even if departing for the cruise on one of our sailing catamarans (it's virtually impossible to "stop" to watch whales while under sail). We apologize that you didn't get a chance to sail (if you were scheduled to join us on one of the sailing catamarans), and we're honored you chose to recommend us with "5 stars". We look forward to sharing more adventures with you the next time you're in "our neighborhood". Mahalo

We had a blast. The crew were very involved and helpful with answering any questions we had. They kept the vibe lively and the drinks flowing. We saw several whales during our tour, some very early on. I would definitely do this tour again.

Hands down one of the best parts of our trip to the Big Island. The boat captains and staff were friendly, knowledgeable and attentive throughout the evening and really took care of the guests making every person feel welcome. The (unlimited) drinks and snacks were great. We sat back, relaxed, enjoyed the views and even saw several whales on our sunset cruise. We highly recommend this cruise for anyone looking for something extra to make their trip memorable.
