Had a fantastic time on this sunset cruise. Called before the trip and arranged the 4 person package. Great, knowledgeable, friendly crew. Being the sunset cruise, it was byob, which was a nice touch. A couple cold drinks with the wonderful weather while watching the beautiful sunset, was very enjoyable for our party. I regret not taking the snorkeling cruise.... More

Can't say enough good things about Island Magic. First of all the crew was great! Our group of 6 lucked out and got the catamaran to ourselves for our trip to Turtle Canyon. You can bring your own drinks and food and they supplied the ice and waters. Capt Christina was great and Gary was super helpful. He pointed out... More

The crew was very hospitable. BYOB arrangement worked great. Made more friends while in the boat. With clear skies, we got to view the perfect sunset and watched fireworks at nightfall. Thank you for a great time. :)

We had a great time with Capt Christina and crew on the Island Magic 36 foot Catamaran out of Kewalo Harbor near Ala Moana. We love sailing and so many Waikiki catamarans mostly motor. With a BYOB policy and big coolers on board, this is a real party boat that can hold 25 comfortably but even more than that legally.... More

We looked at almost every snorkel excursion and settled on this young and energetic company. Friendly and experienced we arrived at the snorkel site in no time. We had so much fun swimming with turtles in pristine warm waters accompanied by the crew that took fun photos and video of our large family group. I highly recommend Island Magic Catamaran... More
