Can't recommend this magical experience enough! Everything about our Kaikanani sailing was top-of-the-line, from the beautiful catamaran to the fantastic crew. Our teenagers were enthralled all the way through, but especially during our snorkeling adventure. We saw some of the most stunning coral and fish! The elegant boat, great service, and breathtaking views made this trip one we'll cherish forever. I'm still in awe of the way everything from booking to getting off was smooth with Kaikanani.
