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.

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

    I love the experience! The boat was beautiful! I had a surprise birthday party for two of my friends, and it was such a blast! I came and set up little decorations with help from the captain and we cleaned up everything afterwards. The boat was so nice and beautiful and I enjoyed every bit of it. They had snorkeling gear and life vests to enjoy some snorkeling. I can’t wait to rent out again to enjoy the beautiful water! I will recommend them to everyone!!

    This was an awesome experience. The captain and well as his assistant Michele were both awesome! I literally didn’t have to lift a finger during the entire trip. I scheduled a private outing for my significant other and I for his birthday! She was so hands on about everything. Anyone who is traveling to Hawaii I truly would recommend this crew to book with! You will definitely get your moneys worth plus some! No need to look any further!

    The communication with the crew was perfect, all details discussed and everything went as planned. Professionalism is the word to describe their work. We were a party of 10 and everyone had a great time on the boat. Definitely will rent again.

    Beneteau First 42.7 Monohull in Kewalo Habour Honolulu, Hawaii

    Fantastic time with awesome captain Will and Michelle. We had our daughter’s 5th birthday celebration and booked vessel for 2 hrs. We had been met on the gate to the harbor by Michelle, escorted to the yacht - everything was ready and set for the departure. We had captain Will in charge. Great time together. Fantastic views of the Waikiki and the Diamond Head. We were greatly instructed about the timing well in advance before the trip and during the trip. All went smooth and happy. Thanks captain Will and Michelle for the great time!

    Great family day out on the water. Captain Will and First Mate Michele friendly, helpful, and accommodating all way through. Appreciate all the great photos that Michele took of us as well as Will giving our 5 year old son instruction at the helm. Nice clean roomy yacht in great shape with newly refurbished interior. Calm conditions on our day but made the best of it by heading out to run along with a large pod of dolphins. Glassy early morning conditions made for crystal clear viewing of dolphins swimming below us and all around us. Seemed like they were enjoying watching us just as much as we enjoyed watching them. Highly recommend.
