    Had a great day on the private sand bar boat charter , cicaou the captain was brilliant , very informative. Only downside is that you don’t spend long enough on the boat touring the coast line and the boat doesn’t pick up speed that you would expect a speedboat to do on a charter. Rob

    It is the best decision we made in this trip

    It is the best decision we made to attend the Kaneohe sandbar tour with Captain Bruce. We booked speedboat tour this time. Our captain take good care on all of us, 2 of us are not good at swim, he always look after on them, it makes us felt safe and satisfied. We spent a cozy time at the sandbar, enjoyed the sun and activities there. And we saw many sea turtles over there. We do recommend to visit the sandbar through Captain Bruce, it is the best experience we had in Oahu.
