I highly recommend this tour! John was an excellent tour guide, and took us to a super nice spot that was sort of off the trail, but we ended up seeing many turtles (6? and many surfaced next to us), many fish, and an octopus! John was really fun to talk to, informative, and was basically everything I'd want out of a guide!

The tour itself was really fun. We saw turtles snorkeling and quite a few humpback whales pretty close up. Tour guide was great and really helpful. I was annoyed with the app though. They have you download the get your guide app, which seemed pretty easy to use and convenient. The morning of our tour, 6 am, we go to the app and click the 'get directions' button and follow the GPS. No one is there, which seems odd, but I figure maybe only a few other people are going with us. Gets closer to time and no one is showing up, so we call the help line and it turns out we were supposed to be at the Makena Landing, not the Makena State Park. Turned out fine because it was only a 5 minute drive away, but it put me in a bad mood. They told me they were fixing the location on the tour details, but as far as I can see it still has GPS to the wrong location. The description DOES say landing, but unless you know the area, you won't realize those mean two different things.

We saw plenty of turtles up close and lots of fish. The visibility of the water was incredible. Scuba Steve was very knowledgeable and helped us learn a lot. He guided us to all the right spots and took incredible photos. We were very very happy and lucky to have him as our guide!!
