Fantastic experience! Easy to book/pay online. Directions and email communication was easy and helpful. Staff was great and informative. And of course, the actual experience of being in the water and seeing sharks was just amazing! If you get seasick plan accordingly because the boat does rock a good bit but we enjoyed even that part! Would highly recommend.

Was an incredible experience for our family! There were constantly 8+ sharks around us yet we felt completely safe thanks to the knowledgeable crew. Was our number 1 favorite excursion while in Hawaii for 10 days.
