The Kamanu Catamaran

The “Kamanu Catamaran” is Kona’s only custom 36′ catamaran built for speed and comfort. She’s 22 feet wide, making for a large stable platform with an expansive “trampoline” or webbing net up forward for lying on. Soak in the sun and watch the ocean flow by you as you gaze through the net into the deep blue on a catamaran tour of Big Island Hawaii. Relax in the shaded open air cabin area and “talk story” with the captain and first mate.

We had a wonderful ,relaxing voyage! Captain and his assistant were very friendly, informative and funny! It was a beautiful evening-we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect excursion.

Great sunset cruise

We did the Sunset Cruise. Our captain was very patient, and waited 20 minutes for a couple who said they were 2 minutes away, and never did show up. That doesn't include the 30 minutes prior to launch that everyone was told to arrive at. Great crew, beautiful sunset, mai tais, beer and wine were great, and the food was more than anticipated for appetizers. Definitely would recommend!

Magical Water Adventure - Eagle Rays

We loved our sailing and snorkeling trip! The team was wonderful, and it was magical to snorkel and see the fish. We even saw Eagle Rays, swimming in parallel, a breaktaking highlight for us. Thank you!

Amazing snorkelling in Kona

Beautiful snorkelling trip with a great crew. Small group, very personable and friendly crew. Really enjoyed it. Would highly recommend to anyone who would love to enjoy snorkelling without the crowds.

Sunset cruise was spectacular

Captain Peter or Paul and first mate Patrick were awsome on our sunset sail out of Kona. My son wanted a sailing catamaran not a motor sail and I found Kamanu on yelp. It did not disappoint, the crew snd boat was fabulous. Felt more intimate then the larger tours. You can’t go wrong with this crew.
