What a great trip! Our captain Paul was fantastic. He treated us as if we were royalty and we just sat back and enjoyed the beautiful sunset. The appetizers were great especially the chicken wings! We were lucky enough to see whales also. Thanks again...More

Paul took care of our family of 5. My Dad, missing his boat at home, enjoyed taking the helm! We saw honu, flying fish & whales! Would recommend this charter & Paul for a day on the water!

We just had some snacks and drinks when we went. I am sure you could coordinate that with them. They were very accommodating when we went on our tour.
