Rave Reviews

Traveling at the age of 20 with your friends is a guaranteed fun time but when you do amazingly fun excursions like the Makani Catamaran, it just makes your vacations a thousand times better! My friends and I had such a great time thanks to your amazing staff. They’re very nice and very helpful. I’ve been on the catamaran three times and every time it just seems to get better and better. I highly recommend Makani Catamaran, MAHALO!!! oh and we saw turtles and DOLPHINS on our sail, IT WAS AMAZING!!!

This was by far the best catamaran we have been on! The staff is AMAZING. The crew is so helpful and funny. They make you feel like your part of their crew for sure. We loved spending time on the water and hearing all they had to say about the islands and animals. The captain was great! We will be doing this again!

We saw a sea turtle and a group of dolphins followed us for a while and did some "tricks". No whales on this trip but the crew made the experience fun by telling jokes and talking about the animals.

I can't say enough nice things about our trip on the Makani Catamaran! The staff were warm and friendly, the drinks we're tasty and the views were breathtaking. We had the opportunity to stand in the Captain's Galley and take photos. Captain Jon was so accommodating and thoughtful - he even offered to take our picture. This is one experience you do not want to miss out on! Highly recommend.

The boat was in great shape, staff was very professional and committed to safety. I appreciated that more than anything. I would highly recommend this trip for anyone visiting the Island, the views are well worth it. Great value trip!

So, full disclosure I was pretty skeptical that this would be fun at all. In fact, this was totally my wifes idea. That said, of all the things we did in Hawaii, this ended up being one of my favorites. We had been doing pushing ourselves pretty hard for several days up to this point and it was just really nice to sit back for a couple hours with drinks in hand and hang out as a family. We sat on the netting in the front and our 9,7, and 5 year old kids thought it was awesome to watch the water go by underneath and at one point even had some dolphins following us. 100% would suggest and will definitely do again.

I am so happy that I booked this during our trip to Hawaii. The crew was nice, hospitable, and very engaging. They made the sail super fun for everyone on board. Our captain was even able to show us sea turtles and a whale, even though we were not promised that when booking! Plus there was a full service bar and the drinks were awesome! I would definitely recommend to everyone. It is definitely worth it.

Waikiki friday night fireworks.

If you are in Oahu and in Waikiki on Friday, you MUST do the Glass Bottom boat tour to see the Friday night fireworks, it was an amazing place to view this spectacular event and you will not regret it at all. They are not far from Ala Moana and definitely on the TO DO List for Waikiki.

GJScott • TRIPADVISOR

Great experience.

The outing was all you can ask for, history, local stories, whales, dolphins, turtles, fish and spectacular views of Waikiki and Diamond head. We had calm seas, overcast at 74 degrees. It was a great experience.

Musky B • TRIPADVISOR

Relaxing cruise with gorgeous views.

Amazing experience! We went on the sunset tour with my relatives from Japan; the captains - Malako and Ford - were friendly and knowledgable the entire time. I appreciated them offering to take photos for us. They played nice music the whole time, and the views were amazing! Would highly recommend it!

An unforgettable experience. 

The Via Mia is a fully restored antique yacht located in Honolulu, Hawaii. The worldly 61-foot wooden yacht was constructed in 1929 in Stockton, California. Built for luxury, she traveled the world before crossing the ocean to Hawai‘i where she currently resides in beautiful Waikiki.

If her teak could speak, Vida Mia would not only tell stories about movie stars and politicians who enjoyed her lap of luxury basking in the sunsets off Waikiki, but of the countless grand times of families and friends who created lifetime memories aboard this gorgeous, iconic vessel.

The Vida Mia has been on the silver screen starring in movies dating all the way back to the 50's.

Nearly everyone you meet on the island has a story of an event or adventure on the Vida Mia. 

She had made Hawaii home for over 60 years.

The Vida Mia is an exclusive experience that our guests remember for years.  

Nothing pleases us more than sharing the Vida Mia with new friends.

Over the years, we have built a community of visitors, travelers, and local residents.

The Vida Mia works exclusively with local artists, vendors, and craftsmen. From musicians to our local coffee farmers and fisherman, we strive to build a community around the boat.  All of the food served on the boat is sourced locally.  

The Vida Mia served her country during World War II. She arrived in Hawai‘i after serving as an unofficial escort of the famed Transpacific sailing race in 1963, although it’s said perhaps the Transpacific racing fleet was really escorting her.

​There is only one Vida Mia.​

Our experienced maritime staff has traveled the world restoring and preserving old sailing vessels and has extensive experience with classic yachts and wooden boats.

We take great pride as stewards of this historic vessel.  Our staff is hands-on and personable. We have a loyal customer base here in Hawaii. 

Vida Mia has been a beloved part of the Hawaii island harbor community for many years. 

Come experience the Vida Mia. There is no other boat like her.

When you book Vida Mia know you are supporting many other small businesses here in our community.

We look forward to seeing you soon.

We are conveniently located near all the major hotels in Honolulu. We share the harbor with the nearby Prince Waikiki , Ilikai Hotel , and the Hilton Hawaiian Village . If you are staying at the Royal Hawaiian , Outrigger Waikiki, or Sheraton Waikiki we are a short 10-15 minute walk along the beach. Many of our hotel guests take a morning stroll over to the harbor or rent a Biki bike at one of their kiosks. There is a nice bike path along the beach; you can catch it right at the end of Lewers Street or take the scenic route and cut through the path at the Hale Koa Hotel .

For guests staying on other parts of the island, we offer transportation recommendations.

There is ample parking near the vessel. Parking in the Ala Wai Small Boat Harbor is convenient and affordable.

We recommend shared rides or taxi service for cruises that depart on Friday evenings.

Your message

Want your own private sunset tour? This is it! The tour was very professional as well as fun. Michelle made booking the tour very easy. Michelle and Will were very good on the open Ocean and very accommodating. Allowed music if you wanted and can bring whatever drinks you want. Will had just crossed the Pacific Ocean in a boat! Wow!

What to do with a dozen friends all in town at once? Our sunset sail was wonderful! Everyone had a lovely time, enjoying the beautiful skyline and horizon. The highlight of the trip was our close sighting of humpback whales! They were less than 30 yards away at times – it’s hard to say whether the kids or the adults were more excited! The crew was very helpful and the boat Tefiti (for sailing nerds) is beautiful, clean, in perfect condition, and amazingly set up for singlehanding – almost everything is automated to the point she almost sails herself. Not a spot of rust anywhere – she clearly gets a lot of TLC!

Our family of 10 rented the boat originally for two hours to take my husband’s ashes out to Diamond Head and scatter them in the ocean he loved so much and sailed so often. It was a Memory that the entire family will cherish forever. Michele and our captain couldn’t have been more accommodating. After we put his ashes into the water, we asked if it would be possible to stay out an extra hour so that we could all swim in the waters off Waikiki…and the two of them were totally good with that! Such a fun time after such an emotional day for us all. Michele was so good with the two youngsters we had with us…even providing brand-new life jackets for them…ages 6 + 7! It was sunset as we came into the channel…docking was a picture perfect ending to the afternoon. Thank you so much! We loved it and highly recommend this team for a perfect sail aboard the Beneteau 50 Te Fiti!

Had a great day with Honolulu Sailing Company. It was really nice to have a private yacht and avoid the crowds packed on other boats. Our family really appreciated that the captain and crew were fully vaccinated and it made the tour very relaxing. It’s hard these days to find something to do that feels safe. We booked a snorkel cruise and will book a sunset sail before we head home to Arizona.

RATED 4.5 STARS ON TRIPADVISOR!

They have this operation dialed in. It is short but very sweet. The open bar and fun, yet competent, staff makes for good times on the water. The views are great, they have good music going, and it is fun meeting other folks on board. Definitely check it out!

What a wonderful experience! The crew was friendly and fun. The drinks were tasty and plentiful. The sunset was gorgeous and the moonrise was a terrific bonus. I highly recommend!

This was a great experience. This sail is very calm and relaxing and a completely different experience from the trade wind sails, where you expect to get tossed around and get wet. The crew was very friendly and attentive. The sunset was gorgeous, even though it was overcast all day. My wife and I now prefer this sail over the trade winds sails we have done in the past. Great sail!

My friend was visiting me on the island and we both loved this experience! The crew is so refreshing and fun! It was a mix of young and old! It was a great time! Would definitely recommend!

This is the best deal in Waikiki. Was there for a week and went on this cruise three times. ~$30 for one hour sail with open bar. So, you can sit in a hotel bar and nurse one drink or be on the ocean enjoying amazing views, listen to lively music and chug down multiple drinks. No brainer. Shout out to Dustin for the amazing sailing experience.

This was a total blast! The guys running the boat were friendly and entertaining. The sites were phenomenal. The sea life is gorgeous. And the drinks were very good. I booked a second trip, can’t wait to sale again!

ENJOY YOUR TRIP.

Awesome experience.

We had a great time at the turtle canyon morning snorkel tour. The crew was super friendly and helpful and it was very safe, even you had never snorkeled before you could enjoy this. We saw half a dozen different turtles, surfacing and all. Awesome experience.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Our Waikiki Sunset Cruise did not disappoint! The cruise was one of the highlights of our vacation. We saw a whale and an unbelievable sunset all while enjoying drinks with a great group on the boat. Our captain and bartender were awesome and we highly recommend this experience to all.

a drawing of a face

Great time snorkeling with this crew! We saw a lot of fish and many sea turtles. My daughter loved jumping off the side of the boat over and over! Drinks were great too!

My husband and I had a wonderful time on the 2:30 Sunset Cruise. The guys sailing us out were super nice. It was beautiful on the water, and we even saw a turtle in the water! The Mai Tai drinks they had on board, were actually the best we had the entire trip. I would defiantly recommend this experience! P.S. you could get soaked...we did :-)

So much fun! One of the more affordable sunset cruises and 100% worth it. The workers on the boat were friendly and upbeat and did a great job of cultivating a fun vibe. Would do it again in a heartbeat.

Best part of my trip! Kalani, Mina, Mitchell and Justin were great. Super nice and friendly. The views during sunset were incredible. I will definitely be booking this again when I come back to Waikiki. Thanks Manu Kai crew!

This was a great experience. We went on the morning snorkel tour and had a fantastic time! The boat comes right to the beach at Waikiki. The people were fantastic!!! We saw 3 turtles and lots of fish at turtle canyon.

We did the Diamond Head Tour and had a great time. This is a 90 min tour with sails up. Captain and crew were great. Great views of Waikiki and Diamond Head from the boat. The Manu Kai is small enough that you really felt the waves and were really sailing. Crew were manning the sails but still had time to make sure you had mai tais. Overall a great time and highly recommend.

Well worth the money. Great crew, drinks included. Plenty of room on the boat. Friendly atmosphere. Bring a camera or iPhone, maybe a sweatshirt for after sunset. Expect to have a great time for $40.00. Definitely would go again.

We chose Manu Kai for the mid morning turtle snorkel at Turtle Canyon and had a terrific time. We saw plenty of turtles and fish and enjoyed the professional but casual, laid back vibe of the crew. Jess in particular was outstanding (with a background in marine biology). Post our snorkel we headed towards Diamond Head for a great view of the beach and were lucky enough to see dolphins at play. A great morning trip.

No boat? No problem. Here's how to get on the water even if you don't own a boat.

yacht tour honolulu

Rhode Island, with 400 miles of coastline , is called the Ocean State, but getting on the water can be difficult, unless you own a boat, or have a good friend or relative who owns one.

Here are some tips for getting on the water without marrying into a family of boaters:

What's the best way to rent a boat in Rhode Island?

Wickford Boat Rentals has more than a dozen boats ranging from 19 to 36 feet, both power boats and sailboats. Daily and extended rentals are available.

The business requires renters to demonstrate they're qualified to handle a boat on their own. "We vet them pretty heavily," said owner David Fetherston.

Do you need training to drive a boat in RI?

For those who haven't had training, lessons are available through Wickford's In-Command Seamanship Training program. Wickford also offers charters with a "captain on board who will take you on a carefree excursion around Rhode Island’s beautiful coastline."

Rental costs vary depending on the size of the boat and the rental period. For example, smaller boats rent for about $295 for a half day and $395 for a full day. The larger boats rent for about $745 to $945. Repeat renters can get discounts by joining Wickford's Captain's Club.

Wickford Rentals also offers chartered trips aboard its Sabre 36 Express, Lorelei. The charter includes a captain and crew member and costs $1,550 plus gas for a half day, $2,250 plus gas for a full day.

Renting kayaks in Rhode Island

Kayaks require less training and boating knowledge than powerboats and sailboats. They may also provide the easiest and least expensive access to water.

Several businesses in Rhode Island offer kayak rentals. The Kayak Centre in Wickford rents several different types of kayaks, including pedal kayaks. A single recreational kayak rents for $37 for two hours and $53 for four hours. The business also rents out standup paddle boards, $42 for two hours, $58 for four hours.

The business rents kayaks out of two locations, Wickford and Charlestown. Reservations must be made in advance. The Kayak Centre also offers lessons, tours and kayak fishing.

Or, if you're in the Providence area, Providence Kayak rents single and tandem kayaks in the heart of downtown and in Lincoln Woods. Rentals start at $20 for 45 minutes.

What are boat clubs and how do you join one in RI?

Freedom Boat Club , which has six Rhode Island locations, offers an option between renting and owning. The club requires a down payment and monthly dues. The standard entry fee is $7,999, but the club often offers new-member promotions at a reduced joining fee. Monthly dues range from $349 to $429, according to Michelle Voss, a company spokeswoman.

In addition to its locations in Wakefield, North Kingstown, Warwick, Newport, Barrington and Portsmouth, Freedom Boat Club has more than 400 locations across North America, Europe and Australia.

"A major benefit to membership is that members not only have unlimited access to their home club fleet of boats, but reciprocal access to enjoy any of our locations worldwide," Voss said. "Many of our members plan their travel based on where we have locations."

Freedom requires members to pass a written exam and on-the-water training, which is covered by the membership cost.

More: With boating season on horizon, Coast Guard, boat captains urge training

Gondola rides in Providence offer unique sightseeing opportunities from the water

Probably the most famous and most romantic way to get on the water in Rhode Island is to take a gondola river ride with La Gondola Providence.

Owner Matthew "Marcello" Haynes has four gondolas available to take guests through downtown Providence on the Providence and Woonasquatucket rivers. Reservations aren't required but are advised, Haynes said.

La Gondola Providence offers a variety of trip types. The Sogni, the original and "still the most popular," costs $89 for two people on a 40-minute private ride. It "includes an ice bucket, glasses, and opener (BYOB), handmade Italian wine biscuits, and a little singing from your gondolier." Your gondolier would be happy to point out the sights and answer questions during the trip."

La Gondola Providence also offers half-hour trips during WaterFire that cost $299 for up to six guests.

A classic sailing cruise out of Newport is another great boating option

Another option that lets someone else do the piloting or sailing is a sightseeing trip out of Newport. Newport Classic Cruises offers rides on sailboats and a motor yacht called Rum Runner II.

The Rum Runner II was built during Prohibition for use in the rumrunner trade, according to Newport Classic Cruises. "Relive the speed and thrill of the chase of the smuggler boats from the days of Prohibition."

Trips on the Rum Runner II cost $45 for adults, $42 for seniors and $35 for children.

Newport Classic Cruises also offers charters on sailboats.
