Thank you to Anthony, Bri and Ian for a great experience in November 3. We had the whole catamaran for ourselves and the crew were great making our experience more enjoyable. Fully recommend. We dived off the boat and snorkeled on a reef.

Booked this excursion through Aulani and it was amazing. I have done many snorkel trips before but the crew was amazing and the service was great. Nice catamaran and plenty of time in the water and whale watching.
