What people are saying about Oahu

The girls were amazing!!! Knowledgeable engaging I can’t say enough good things. Everyone was great!!! We found a nursery pod of dolphins. The smaller boat and capacity size made this the absolute best way to be up front and close to the dolphins. I was so glad we weren’t on the big boats out. We wouldn’t have been able to see the baby dolphins having a blast or the ones riding our wake. Just can’t say enough good things about this tour. I have already recommended to everyone I know.

The boat ride is an absolute thrill!!! Both Brandon (captain) and Jen (guide) are wonderful. Jen free dived to the bottom to bring sea life to the surface for us to see. We didn’t climb the jump off rock point but Jen did and it looked pretty cool if you’re agile enough. Again, the boat ride is intense be sure to hold on tight!!!

This tour was one of the most fun ones I did during my stay in Hawai'i! You get amazing views of the island from the boat and the tour guides are so sweet and welcoming. They truly make the tour by being such awesome people :)

The staff were friendly and the cruise was very enjoyable! I would go again

Very enjoyable boat ride & snorkeling. Crew was very nice.
