What to know about hiring a boat in Honolulu

With a name that means “sheltered harbor” or “calm port,” it is no small wonder that Honolulu is the darling of many boaters. Powerboats and sailboats enjoy equal popularity here, and chartering opportunities for these types of vessels abound. For sailing, hiring or chartering a large cruising catamaran if you're visiting with a group is the perfect option. You'll have plenty of space to spread out onboard and can bring on your music, food, and drinks for the ultimate day of exploring the waves. You can also take out monohull sailboats for a fun experience, and learn a bit of sailing skills from your skipper.

If you are looking for a smaller craft, you can find plenty of hire options. From kayaks, canoes, or paddleboards, you'll find a man-powered watercraft to take you around the gorgeous coastline of Honolulu, soaking up the Hawaiian sun.

There are so many incredible water activities to take part in during your stay in Honolulu. The marine life of Honolulu is vast and varied, and you can enjoy sportfishing off the coast on a Hawaiian fishing charter or even embark on a memorable dolphin or whale-watching tour.

    Enjoy "Gauguin" Beneteau First 42.7 Monohull Charter in Honolulu, Hawaii

    Had such a great time with Captain Mike and the crew! We sailed to Diamond Head and back which was perfect with my two five year olds! The crew were so friendly and so gracious with my kids! Couldn’t recommend them enough!

    42ft Sailing Trimaran Charter in Honolulu, Hawaii

    This was my second time renting with Kevin and it did not disappoint! The weather was good, Kevin and his crew are awesome, and my group and I had a blast! They allow you to have fun and enjoy your time on the boat while still making sure everyone is safe. 10/10 would recommend and I'll definitely be using his services again :)

    42ft Sailing Trimaran Charter in Honolulu, Hawaii

    Our group of 11 had a blast with Kevin, Matt, and Sunny (the adorable dog). Highly recommended if you are looking for a fun way to get on the water with a private group setting. Kevin was so accommodating and made us all feel so welcomed. It was our first time in Hawaii and we couldn’t have been more satisfied with the experience!

    42ft Sailing Trimaran Charter in Honolulu, Hawaii

    This was actually my first time ever being on a boat and my experience was amazing! Kevin accommodated all of our needs from having a grill on board as well as speakers, a bathroom & area for our personal things. He even let some of my friends borrow some seasick bands just in case. I was worried about how the weather would be but once we got out into the ocean, it was perfect. I couldn't get enough of the view we had of diamond head & the city. Could not think of a better way to spend my birthday. Would definitely book again!

    42ft Sailing Trimaran Charter in Honolulu, Hawaii

    A very fun experience! The whole day we were fishing, diving, and just having fun. The weather was perfect so it was a lucky day to relax on a boat. We even got to see whales! The captain was a pretty cool guy who seems to have a lot of experience and know what he's doing. I liked how there was a lot of stuff on the boat such as a bathroom, bed, and a kitchen area. There was also a grill where we can cook our food! I would definitely rent again in the future.

    Sailing Charter On 48' Custom Made Sailing Catamaran In Honolulu, Hawaii

    Our party of 8 had an amazing day and evening onboard. We were able to swim with sea turtles at turtle canyon and sail around by Waikiki beach and diamond head. We would have gone farther but the wind and waves were too high to go past the point. Nevertheless it was a beautiful day and we also enjoyed the sunset. The vessel had snorkel equipment and a dining area with benches or nets to lounge on as well as a few bean bag chairs. The captain and first mate were knowledgeable and friendly during our 4 hours aboard. Definitely a highlight of our trip.
