    Our guide Johnny was great and best sport fishing trip I've been on. Caught 2 mahi mahi and 3 nice Ohno. One was 40lbs. The only downside be aware if it's 45 min to the good fishing it will be 2hours rough boat ride back in.

    This experience was amazing! Chad was a great person to have guide us through. Very nice and informative. We had the best time and got to see numerous sea turtles. He also took amazing pictures of us. Would definitely recommend this activity! The best experience we had on the island.

    I had a great time. Ken was patient with my nerves on the initial ship dive. Saw turtles, sharks, and octopus. It was nice to go on a dive with less people.

    Our family of 4 took a semi private lesson. The staff was fun to hang with very helpful instructors…. We all got up! Love that they caught it all on camera - we had to buy the pics as this was was one of the highlights of our trip.

    Our family of five had an amazing experience on the Outrigger Canoe ride! It was so much fun being out on the water working together with the guides to find the wave, paddle with all of our might, and then surf it in towards the shore. If you're in the front seat, wear glasses because you're getting WET! It was truly exhilarating and a highlight of our time on Oahu.

    Sherin and I celebrated our 1 Year Anniversary with a sunset cruise with Capt Gaelyn and SailBlueHawaii. It was everything we hoped it would be for our first sailing experience. Spectacular views, private setting, exciting sailing and an excellent host. It was a truly memorable night. Aside from the sailing itself, Capt Gaelyn's approach was excellent. She applied a personal touch to understanding what we were looking for and was easily accessible and responsive on text for any follow-up questions. She did a great job of making sure all of the i's were dotted and t's were crossed to prepare for the night. If you are looking for a unique / private sailing experience in Waikiki, I highly recommend SailBlueHawaii

    This is a great place to learn to surf. They break surfing down into 4 easy steps and everyone in our class stood up by the end of the session. That provide everything you need, you just need to show up. I highly recommend.

    Everyone from checkin onward was exceptionally kind. The outrigger canoe experience of scattering my sister’s ashes was a special event. The three guys in the canoe were so caring and considerate. This was a wonderful tribute to my sister.

    I've dove with Big Kahuna a few times now and I can't say enough good things. Greg and the rest of the crew are kind, knowledgeable, and safety-minded. On my most recent dive with them my dad was having a difficult time during one of our dives and Greg and Captain Noah made sure everyone was safe, I can't thank them enough!

    My son and I went out yesterday, 27 Jun, there were 2 other groups with us (1 with 6 ppl and the other with 5). We were the last group to go up and it was absolutely amazing!! Jason and Whitney were GREAT! To say we loved it is such an understatement, I don’t think we could’ve had a better experience. From the time we checked in until we got back everything was phenomenal, due in large part to Jason and Whitney, they were very professional but SOOOO much fun! I would HIGHLY recommend, this is a must and gives you an entirely different view and appreciation for this breathtaking island.

    Booked this through concierge at my hotel, and am so glad I did! Amazing experience, so much fun! I went by myself, and was told in advance that they might have to send me up with someone else, depending on conditions. I was absolutely fine with that - figured I'd be able to convince someone to go up again for free!

    Two people in my group did not speak English, but the instructor was fluent in their language, and was able to communicate easily with everyone, so that we all knew what to expect. Incredible views, friendly and FUN instructors/boat captains, and an all-around good time.
    So why only 4 stars instead of 5?
    The lady who greeted me at the front desk was not very friendly. She seemed irritated, like my presence was preventing her from beating the next level of Candy Crush or something. First impressions are important, and if I hadn't already made the booking through the hotel, and just been looking to book when I walked in, I likely wouldn't have booked based on my interaction with her.

    We took the outrigger ride and it was tge best experiences. Highly recommend these guys for value and service. Catching waves on the outrigger was amazing thanks to the perfect surf break in Waikiki and entertaining staff who took us out. It helped that the spotted a turtle swimming next us too :-)

    This is our second time using South Pacific Water Sports. When you get their ask for the Special! It is also featured in their brochure where you get 3 activities for $99 + tax If you book online at southpacifichawaii.com it's only $89 + tax. This is a best deal in town. My son is 17 so we spent the entire day on the water. The skipper for bumper tubing was awesome and my son had an amazing time bumper boating and tubing.

    I was up next for Jet Skiing and I was able to hit maximum speed on the jet skis. I love to jet ski! I stay in Hawaii Kai when I visit Oahu so there are no issues with transportation getting to and from the Marina. If you are visiting, I recommended a car rental. There is plenty of free parking at the Marina. If you have to wait there are plenty of shops, Coconuts Shave Ice and Leonard's Malasadas at Koko marina.

    I highly recommend this place for families and singles and plan on coming back again next year!
