[From personal experience, there’s no way to prepare yourself for the butterflies that will be twirling in your stomach as you ask THE question. But, you can definitely prepare everything else by selecting a great venue, undoubted support, and crisp photographer.] Here at MANA Cruises, we’ve tailored a specific package for your life changing moment. We’ll provide every necessity for the perfect boat proposal. From the yacht, to the set up, the flowers, the music, and even the timing. There’s is no better way to pop the big question.
As you and your loved one board your private yacht shortly before sunset, receive fresh local Hawaiian leis. Head up to the bow & get cozy on our bean bag chairs surrounded by dozens of local flowers to set the mood. As we sail up the coast, inhale the salt mist and intake the sights. When the time is right, we will set the scene for you to get down on that knee and ask your parter the biggest question of your life. All professionally photographed – you won’t need to worry about losing precious moments, focus on enjoying your emotions.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What should I wear?
First and foremost, all our cruises are done bare foot aboard our vessel. There is no need for heels and boots as all footwear will be removed.
Holo Holo Morning Cruise: Wear anything comfortable and flexible. If you plan to jump into the water with us, bring or wear your swim suit/shorts. A hat for sun protection is always a great idea to ensure you don’t burn your head and face.
The Captain’s Sunset + Tasting: Button downs and dresses are welcome to the boat, however keep in mind the possibility of windy conditions – so, anything comfortable and flexible. Whether Summer or Winter, the temperature cools quickly when the sun disappears; bring an extra cover up or sweater if you get cold.
What kind of ocean life will I be able to see?
Throughout the year we encounter various species of Fish, Turtles, Eels, Crustaceans and marine mammals such as Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins and Humpback Whales (Seasonal). Our Holo Holo Morning Cruise will provide the best opportunity to see a variety of ocean life through snorkeling and time capabilities.
Though we love to view our wonderful Hawaiian ocean life as much as possible, it is within our company’s discretion to respect the legal and safe viewing distances applicable to each species.
Do you provide snorkeling gear?
Yes, we provide various types of gear to help you enjoy the water! For snorkeling we provide professional masks, snorkels, and fins for both youth and adults.
