About the Crew


Our captains, Captain Jon and Captain Brad have been sailing in Hawaiian water since late 1980s. They both shared the passion for racing sailboats which lead them to earn Captain credentials. Makani has been a special boat, performing like no other catamaran in Hawaii, with the concept of combining Grand Prix sailing with charter boat comfort, Makani gives an unforgettable ride.

“To this day, I still feel the thrill of gliding across the blue waters off of Diamond Head.  Every day I work, I’m sharing that thrill with people from around the world. ”

Our third Captain, Captain Cristina has been working for over 10 years. She shares her lifelong love of the ocean with new and different people everyday. She loves being connected with nature, working in the sun and in the beautiful oceans. She is able to use what nature gives her to create a memorable experience for people.
