Don’t leave the island without going on this cruise. Eliot, Shantel and dad, Larry are the absolute best tour host. Doug and I were serenaded and enlightened on the rich history of the island all while enjoying refreshing drinks and tasty pastries of all sorts. I would definitely do this again. As an added treat I was able to put my cell phone away and enjoy the moment while Shantel captured all of the wonderful memories for us on their camera. Can’t wait to see the pictures.

Whew sorry for the late review. Life has been crazy. My husband and I went to the Waikiki scenic gondola cruise back in July and we loved it. It was our first time in Hawaii and attending a gondola and we’re happy we choose them. We felt comfortable and had so much fun❤️.

It was an amazing experiance, Amber was fab and made everyone comfortable in the water. it was a safe and beautiful snorkel, great for first timers as well as great for those that haven't snorkeled in awhile.

Liszt and Zola were so awesome. I’m not a swimmer but they made it possible. Thank you so much for such a wonderful experience

An unforgettable experience. Host was very professional and kind. Recommended for any couple searching for a special moment.
