It was ok, crew made it worth it!
I’ve been on many, many snorkel cruises and while this one was probably the most unimpressive, the staff and crew were exemplary enough to rate a 5 of 5.

1) I’ve never been on a snorkel cruise where I’ve been required to stay in a small area which caused bumping, elbows hitting each other and one person dove and came up right into my groin.

2) I’ve never been on a snorkel cruise where I was required to wear a life jacket. In all fairness, we didn’t have to inflate it, but it was annoying.

3) we saw two turtles, one surfaced pretty close to me as well as a ray and an octopus, but I’ve seen many, many more fish varieties on other cruises.

4) Boxed lunch was ok… a turkey roll up Sammy with chips but the drinks were great!

5) in order to fill time, they cruise you around looking for whales and dolphins. It’s a nice time to talk to and get to know the crew and other guests but know that the snorkeling spot is actually only 15 minutes away.

All in all? Had fun. The catamaran was super clean, again the crew was great and it was a nice time.

shady company.
Nov. 2021
Stay away - seriously! They are so shady! They loaded us all up on the boat even tho the conditions were poor saying "oh no worries well still snorkel". 15 Minutes into the trip they said the conditions were too bad and they weren't gonna let us in the water, but will drive us around for 30 minutes so we "get something out of it". The water was wild and multiple people got sea sick. Than they gave us our sandwiches for lunch, so they dont go to waste. They promised us up and down wed get refunded or get reschedule and that we would get a call. The crew told us that the manager won't let them cancel based on forecast, and they halfway admitted they knew it was gonna get bad and they would have to cancel. Than why even put us on the boat?!

No-one called us. When I finally reached the office they said they would only refund 50% because we ate the sandwich and we got to sail. If I would've known that sandwich and deadliest catch remake would cost us 150$, I would've went overboard . We were on the phone with them for half an hour until they finally agreed to fully refund us as promised. The front desk lady even admitted that 3 other people already called and were just as upset - than why make everyone fight for a refund instead of just offering basic customer service?

Their strategy is to load everyone up and driving them around for an hour so they dont have to refund.

The office lady and the crew were nice - Im pretty sure its shady management!

Great Snorkeling Trip
LOVED our early morning snorkeling trip! We saw lots of turtles, a school of dolphins and other fish. We really enjoyed the crew! They were a great group…lots of fun but also very clear with safety procedures and instructions. Great way to start our day. Definitely one of the highlights of our trip! Highly recommend!

Great snorkeling adventure
Nov. 2021 • Couples
Crew was very friendly and engaging. Drinks and lunch were adequate for the adventure. Snorkeling provided a multitude of fish and turtles. Also saw octopus, an eel and a large conch. Would recommend this boat and crew to everyone.

Favorite adventure in Hawaii!!
Nov. 2021 • Couples
We loved every minute of this Cruise! It was a beautiful and relaxing ride on the catamaran, very fun staff, drinks hit the spot, and the snorkeling was perfect! We saw so many sea turtles and swam with schools of fish! We felt safe with the equipment and instructions. The tour was over all too soon - we could have gone another 3-4 hours. The experience and memories made were well worth the cost of this adventure.

Very cool, laid back experience. Greg and the crew were super helpful and fun. I went with a friend and we did the lunch cruise. We ended up seeing so many turtles! It was the highlight of our trip and I would definitely recommend it to anyone visiting the Honolulu area.
