Modern free reservation and online booking software designed for activity and tourism businesses. We got our start by taking over the phones for North Shore Catamaran Charters in Haleiwa, Oahu. It put us in the activity owner's shoes and taught us the ups, downs, and challenges of running an activity and tourism business. We’ve used that experience and the experiences of dozens of other companies in Hawaii to build FareHarbor. It’s already used every day by companies of 1 to 50+. We work with you instead of against you. Why manage your reservations with a company that has an active interest in reselling your product for the lowest possible price? We want to build a name for you, not us, and we benefit when you get more direct bookings. We are constantly updating software and functionality for the better. Our job is to continually make your life easier.  Read more
