What people are saying about Hawaii

The entire experience was excellent. The crew felt like old friends just out in the boat for the day. Very warm and attentive. Julie, the owner, made sure that everyone had a great time. They looked very hard for dolphins because they knew our small group wanted to experience it. This is the first company that actually delivered. We saw two types of dolphins, octopus, turtles and fishes while snorkeling. I would definitely recommend them if you want a cozy experience with welcoming, informative people.

It was perfect weather ( go in the am) and everything ran smoothly. The boats were in good condition and the glass bottom was interesting but coral and fish were hard to see. I saw 5 turtles right away which made me happy as that is what I primarily went for. Yes you would see more snorkeling, however I really enjoy kayaking. This is a self guided tour so it is best for experienced kayakers, but not difficult. The guys were helpful and took the kayaks to and from the water. I would do it again!

My family and I really enjoyed this experience. I would recommend it for anyone who enjoys the water and kayaking. We went first first thing in the morning before it got to crowded with other kayaker and paddle boarders.

Had an amazing day! We saw lots of dolphins, the ocean water was perfect! The boat crew shared stories and history along the ride, it was so awesome! Definitely recommend!!

Great experience. Sharks, turtles and lots of colorful fish. Also suitable for diving beginners.
