Get in the water and enjoy the best part of Hawaiian living! Pretend you own a catamaran for a day and see the islands up-close and from afar with Makani’s Turtle Canyon Snorkel/Sail Combo. This excursion takes place on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays only (from 9:00 am-12:00 noon) so do plan ahead!
Your excursion will start with a light breakfast of pastries, fruit and coffee aboard Makani. (You’ll also be served one beverage of your choice to enjoy throughout the trip.) Once you’ve satisfied your appetite, you’ll begin your morning of basking in the Hawaiian sunshine and swimming in your little piece of the pristine blue waters that are the destination of so many travelers each year.
Makani is one of the area’s most renowned catamaran services, and you’ll quickly realize why when you step aboard and notice the luxury and attention-to-detail that characterize this fast craft. The Makani crew will issue you with a full set of snorkel gear and lifejacket for use during the trip, and will be available for help should you need it.
The waters you’ll navigate are teeming with wildlife. When you stop for your snorkeling session, use your flippers and try to catch up with a sea turtle! There is absolutely nothing like the feeling of hovering weightlessly in tranquil, clear water and watching an entire ecosystem of marine life go about its beautiful and colorful business. On your excursion, you will likely see dolphins, brightly-colored exotic fish, and perhaps even whales if you’re lucky. The Makani crew has taken care of the details, leaving you to enjoy the best of Hawaiian waters and wildlife. Enjoy this fascinating and serene excursion into the underwater world, and enjoy the luxuries that are found aboard the Makani. The Makani Catamaran is a relatively new vessel, and was constructed in the U.S. Virgin Islands. This yacht features top-of-the-line construction, and exists thanks to the ingenuity of a skilled investment group including Captain Jon Jepson and architect Dave Wallworth, with the help of Gold Coast Yachts. This impressive yacht is worth $1.8 million; the carbon fiber mast alone coming in at $400,000. After the ship was completed in 2005, the crew set sail for Honolulu, sailing over 8,000 miles and passing through the Panama Canal, skirting the coast of Central America and heading northwest via Cabo San Lucas, Mexico. She now calls Kewalo Basin home in lovely Honolulu, and is just waiting for you to take a spin on her beautiful decks with the crew of the Makani!
