Better than the big boats

This was amazing. The crew in the boat made it even more fun. They were super funny and had great history stories. Way better than I expected because they were less expensive than the others

The ocean was blue, the sun shinning, it was a perfect day. The crew was fantastic. It was awesome to snorkel at two different locations. This was one of our favorite outings.

Our trip was fantastic! The crew was so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the island history and culture of Hawaii. The food was plentiful and good, and again the crew was amazing. The snorkeling was fun, lots of fish, eels and even an octopus. Would highly recommend this boat and crew for a wonderful Hawaiian adventure on the water.

Poor narration. Wouldn't do it again.

The narration was scripted and not personal. There was no explanation of where we were traveling to or how far. Even knowing that whale sighting is unpredictable, some description of what to expect would be helpful. The seats are also not very comfortable for a two and a half hour ride.

Magical experience with a very nice crew. We loved every single part of the journey: the morning breakfast, the two different snorkeling times at two different places, the history of the island told by the crew members, the sailing and the lunch. Very friendly atmosphere on board.

Captain Tony and his crew, Josh & Eddie were helpful, fun and very informative. The ship was clean and roomy, the beverages were on ice and the sunscreen was plentiful. Captain took us to a spot on the second part of the trip that had no other groups and see some amazing fish and lava tubes! Oh yeah, we saw dolphins and a whale too! Can’t recommend highly enough!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Great trip with amazing scenery, snorkeling for all levels, an abundance of fish sightings and a crew that went beyond what I expected. The food was healthy and had a nice variety; leave no trash behind was practice (a crew member jumped into the ocean to get a water bottle out!) and recycling was offered on board! Thank you for a wonderful day!

This was an awesome day! The crew was very friendly and hospitable. The snorkeling at Kealakekua Bay was awesome; so beautiful and so much wildlife, including sea turtles. The food was good and drinks were delicious. Towards the end of our trip, dolphins came right up to the front of the boat while we were sailing back to the dock and swam with the boat for a few minutes. Would definitely recommend!!
