Welcome Aboard!

Kepoikai means “Crest of the Wave” in the Hawaiian language. Captain Don Lipton designed and built the Kepoikai II in 1977 with a vision about creating the best catamaran experience in Waikiki. His legacy lives on with the Aloha of Captain Jay and Biggie as well as the entire crew. Embark on our authentic Waikiki Beach sail experience, filled with beauitful views, friends, o’hana and a whole lot of ALOHA!

Kepoikai II is our boat and it is marked with our signature blue and white sails. These legendary sails have been featured in calendars, magazines, books, artwork, postcards, and even television shows. You can find us located right on the sand in front of Duke’s Waikiki Beach.

We sail with Aloha and will make your sail as memorable as the Islands. Kepoikai II is a United States Coast Guard certified vessel that holds up to 37 passengers and 4 Crew. It is regularly inspected by the USCG to maintain the highest level of operational standards set forth by the State of Hawaii and the U.S. Coast Guard.

Our crew is dedicated to your safety and enjoyment. Additionally, our crew makes your enjoyment a top priority. Just sit back, relax and let us provide you with an experience like you have never had before. You will be able take in all the beauty that Waikiki Beach has to offer. We make the effort to ensure you have the catamaran sail of your life!

🌺 Hauʻoli Lā Hānau Kepoikai II! 🌺
It’s been 47 years since Captain Don Lipton built and launched the Kepoikai II, creating a symbol of aloha that sails the iconic shores of Waikiki​. This isn’t just a catamaran; it’s a vessel that carries generations of stories, memories, and the spirit of ʻohana.
Captain Don’s dream was to share the beauty of Waikiki with everyone, and his legacy lives on with Captain Jay, Captain Biggie, Dave, and the rest of the Kepoikai II crew, past and present! The blue and white sails have become legendary, gracing postcards, calendars, and even television shows​!
As we mark this 47th anniversary, we honor the history of this beloved catamaran and the countless journeys it has taken across the crest of the waves. Here’s to all who have sailed with us, shared their laughter, and brought their aloha. 🌈
Mahalo nui loa to everyone who has been a part of our story. We can’t wait to keep sailing with you for many more years to come. 🌊🛥️
