FAQS About
Yacht Charters
Will I get seasick?2024-04-18T16:12:35+00:00

The chances that you will get seasick are slim to none! Many are surprised to hear this; however, catamarans are known for their stability! The two hulls are 32 feet apart, giving the base of the boat added stability and designed to slice through waves, rather than bouncing over them like most sailboats. Therefore, your experience aboard will be smooth, stable, and comfortable! In fact, the Aolani is constantly thanked after the charter for having renewed our guests’ confidence in boating.

Finally, because the Aolani exclusively offers San Diego catamaran charters, in the event that you need us to turn around from going into the ocean, we will do so right away!
