What to know about hiring a boat in Honolulu

With a name that means “sheltered harbor” or “calm port,” it is no small wonder that Honolulu is the darling of many boaters. Powerboats and sailboats enjoy equal popularity here, and chartering opportunities for these types of vessels abound. For sailing, hiring or chartering a large cruising catamaran if you're visiting with a group is the perfect option. You'll have plenty of space to spread out onboard and can bring on your music, food, and drinks for the ultimate day of exploring the waves. You can also take out monohull sailboats for a fun experience, and learn a bit of sailing skills from your skipper.

If you are looking for a smaller craft, you can find plenty of hire options. From kayaks, canoes, or paddleboards, you'll find a man-powered watercraft to take you around the gorgeous coastline of Honolulu, soaking up the Hawaiian sun.

There are so many incredible water activities to take part in during your stay in Honolulu. The marine life of Honolulu is vast and varied, and you can enjoy sportfishing off the coast on a Hawaiian fishing charter or even embark on a memorable dolphin or whale-watching tour.

    What a wonderful day! My husband requested a long sail for Father’s Day and we were fortunate to book with Capt Gaelyn on Kaikiwi. We had perfect weather and got some unexpected sailing instruction with time behind the wheel! We had great conversation and loved listening to her sailing stories while my teenage kids were sitting on the deck getting splashed by the waves. My husband said it was his best Father’s Day ever!

    Hands down we had one of the most memorable experiences we will undoubtedly reflect on for years to come! Min, Pete and all the guys (we were lucky enough to have a well pedigreed crew with Kurt, his son, Marcus and Edward) made our day on Hondo remarkable by allowing us to bask in the beauty of the waters in Wakiki Bay and soak up all the goodness of our surroundings. They went the extra mile with thoughtful touches like a speaker to listen to our music, fun water toys to occupy us and tasty little bites and beverages. The best part was it felt like we were on our own vessel and just hanging with some friends for a day on the open water taking in the sun over some laughs. I highly recommend you spend a day with your friends, family and those near & dear for a one-of-a-kind adventure! Thanks again to the Hondo crew for making us feel so at home on your boat!

    Sailing Charter On 48' Custom Made Sailing Catamaran In Honolulu, Hawaii

    Had an awesome time with my family on our 3 hour sail on a gorgeous afternoon. Captain Steve was focused on getting us around the blue waters and the crew of Kimberly and Savannah were super cool. They took care of us throughout and made sure we got to see some turtles, fish and a dolphin. It made so much sense for our group of 11 to rent a private boat versus getting on a boat with a bunch of strangers. We loved the experience and would recommend it to others!

    Sailing Charter On 48' Custom Made Sailing Catamaran In Honolulu, Hawaii

    An awesome trip. Book four hours from 4:00-8:00 and get a trip that will be the highlight of your trip to Hawaii. Start with snorkeling to see fish and sea turtles, then some relaxing swimming, continue with some action packed sailing and end with a gorgeous sail into the sunset.

    Beneteau First 43 ft Monohull in Kewalo Habour Honolulu, Hawaii

    We charter a boat on every family vacation and this did not disappoint. Captain Rick and first mate really added to the experience. Very attentive, great conversation and provided a lot of background on the island. Was a very windy day but Captain Rick was able to identify smooth areas where possible and we felt in good hands the entire trip. Would recommend to anyone visiting Oahu.
