Review of Maita'i Catamaran

Maita'i Catamaran
Certificate of Excellence
More attraction details
Attraction details
Fee: Yes
Recommended length of visit: More than 3 hours
Owner description: The 44-ft. Maita`i Catamaran takes off three times daily to sail the beautiful waters fronting the world’s most famous beach, Waikiki. Aside from incredible views and the exhilaration that comes with being on the ocean, the smooth riding twin-hulled rig serves up adult libations for passengers who are of age.

My wife and I booked this catamaran sail as part of our honeymoon itinerary. We had Dustin and Ryan working our sail and they were unbelievable! They made sure everything went extremely well and we could not have been more happy with this experience. Would recommend to anyone!

we went on the tradewinds afternoon sail. perfect location (we walked on the beach just a few blocks from our hotel). we didn't have to drive and were able to get back to the room quickly after the sail and shower for an early evening activity. had a blast. nice crew.

My husband and I decided to give this a go at the suggestion of our server, a local named Cindi, who promised it would be the best experience that we would have on the island. We were in Honolulu for a week and would have done this every day if we would have had time. Thanks to Ryan for being a great first mate and bartender. We wish all you guys well. Mahalo!

We thoroughly enjoyed this sunset sail. The crew was great, music was great, Mai Tais were great, views of Waikiki and Diamond Head were great, sunset was beautiful, and a bonus: lots of dolphins to admire! Thanks captain Dustin and bartender Ryan for an unforgettable experience!

The word that comes to mind is simply that- if you're a tourist looking for a cruise, look elsewhere! My friend had her bachelorette/bachelor party with this "company". When someone called me they didn't tell us exactly where they were located and they DO NOT validate parking (parking at the hotel is $2 for every 20 minutes)- it will add up!
When my husband and I arrived we went to check in- they told us "You have a party of four under your name" - We said NO, we have a party of 2 that we reserved a spot for. The attendant insisted that we show her our phones because the system was a glitch (no biggie, but what was strange is that their system was so messed up - a gentleman near us THEY CANCELLED his reservation and never notified him!).Once our friends and their family arrived they split us up from them for pictures. We tried to respectively decline having our picture taken because a) we live here. and b) we were already not feeling what we were about to go on. The woman taking the photos DEMANDED that we had to take the photo or we wouldn't be allowed on the boat (but guess what everyone... they wouldn't do a refund if we didn't get on).

Finally we are on the boat, they packed so many people on this boat (obviously they made some good money off this trip). Then the website says its open bar and they play "top 40s music"... Well the captain and crew (aka the bartender) only had premade MaiTais that were terrible, Budlight beer and a few soft drinks (Thats it folks!) so much for open bar with good drinks... The music WAS AWFUL! it was oldies (more like 50s/60s music nothing newer). The captain and crew had NO personality, didn't point anything out to anyone and we made it to shore before actual sunset. I don't recommend this to anyone tourist or not! Its definitely a trap to lure people in to waste your money! You will be pretty much staring at the water unsure of your surroundings if you have never been to Hawaii! Definitely look elsewhere for a better time!

(Look into a different "booze cruise" and sunset cruise. There are better! We went to one for thanksgiving that was elsewhere and had so much fun we were able to sit in the nets, on the roof of the bar area and had unlimited beers of different sorts, all sorts of liquor etc and it was cheaper than this joke of a boat!)
