If you call us and provide 24 hours notice, we will allow you to reschedule or refund your payment. If you give us less notice and we can notify our crew before they arrive at the boat, we will allow you to reschedule. If we cannot notify our crew, we will have to pay them for preparing the boat and travel time, so we will not be able to refund your payment.
Our yacht has been inspected by the USCG and certified for operation. We provide USCG-certified life jackets for all guests. We also have state-of-the-art navigation and communication equipment in case of an emergency, along with a fully functional EPIRB (emergency position indicating radio beacon). Most important, we have two Cummins diesel engines which will be very useful if one of the engines malfunctions. We have installed rails on the entire perimeter of the yacht for additional safety.
No, snorkeling is one of the simplest aquatic hobbies you’ll ever do! Our patient captains are masters of instruction. We have some masks and snorkels for guests to use. However, we strongly recommend that you bring your personal gear. It will fit you better and you will have a much better experience.
The ideal time to watch whales is between late December and the end of April, when Humpback Whales travel from the north Pacific to Hawaii. We provide daily Whale Watching tours throughout that time of year. Numerous additional whale species dwell in Hawaiian waters annually and are occasionally sighted on one of our tours.
