Private Charter

Join us on our exclusive and private four-hour “Holo Holo” excursion.  Holo Holo is Hawaiian for a cruise which brings pleasure.  This excursion is built exclusively for those who want a unique experience that is customizable and goes above and beyond a standard pleasure cruise.

You will begin your journey with meeting your Captain for a one-on-one conversation.  You and your Captain create a custom adventure that suites your entire party.  Your knowledgeable Captain will provide you with ideas and recommendations based on ocean conditions and seasonal highlights.  This excursion can be designed with a little bit of this or a whole lot of that.  You set the pace of the tour!

Want to snorkel pristine reefs away from the crowds?  We can do that!

Do you want to see Dolphins and Whales?  We know the best spots!

How about seeing sea caves and lava tubes up close?  We can take you there!

Do you like to go fast or just like to slowly cruise and soak up the sun?  We can definitely go at your speed!

Curious about Hawaiian History and Geography? We’ll be happy to share!

Do you want a day in Hawaii that you will never forget?  Give us a call!

We look forward to helping you and your family make your Big Island visit and time on the water an event that you will talk about for years to come.
