This was a fun cruise for snorkeling and seeing turtles. Captain Justin and his assistant, Melissa were great at making sure we had drinks, that we were comfortable and that we had a fun experience. I highly, highly recommend this tour to anyone. In addition Justin and Melissa have a sunset cruise and we went on that as well. Besides a great sunset they sailed around Honolulu harbor so we could see the lights on buildings as it got dark. A great fun day!!!!

This was an amazing experience to swim with the sea turtles! The Captain and Mel were so friendly and accommodating! We had a small group total of six on board vs the 71 on other ships nearby. My husband is not great at swimming and doesn’t love the water. They explained everything and gave him an extra float which did the trick. We both saw several sea turtles and lots of fish. We even had a young turtle swim up to our group on the surface. Chocolate chip cookies and fresh pineapple, and cold drinks too! Highly recommend! I got seasick as I am prone to be and they fixed me up with finger chews!

Left out bright and early at 7am with Diamond Head Cruses. Friendly staff, greater us, signed our waviers. Went over the equipment with us and answered questions. Before we knew it we were at the spot and and in the water. Lots of tropical fish, and we saw our first turtle within 5 mins. We were lucky to see about 8 to 12 of them. They knew right where to take us and we practically had the while place to ourselves. Staff would help taking pics if asked. When we returned to the boat, they gave us fruit and sandwiches. It was a great time and I highly recommend them if snorkeling with turtles is on your list.

I was nervous about swimming in the ocean but the hosts, plus all the other boats and swimmers out there made this experience not terrifying at all! I have a fear of the ocean but this was actually a lot of fun! I’d recommend doing this trip because it’s a small group of 6.

We were late for our trip but Captain Sam waited on us anyways. We really appreciate it. I had a problem with my mask and he helped me out with fixing it. The crew was awesome. We some turtles and bunch of fish. The best part that was unexpected was the dolphins that were right behind me. There was a group of them swimming right under. That’s was the coolest thing I ever saw. I think this trip and the crew deserves a golden medal for hard work and respect. Thank you very much for this experience!!

Captain Sam and divemaster Kim were amazing! This tour promised an experience with sea turtles and they absolutely delivered. The small group format was much more preferable to the larger groups we saw, where you couldn't turn without catching an elbow or getting flippered in the face.

We even saw some spinner dolphins off to the side and behind on our way back in, while snacking on pineapple prepared by the crew.

Highly recommend booking with them. Also if you're looking at this tour, know that you WILL get wet and the water IS salty. But it's snorkeling in Hawaii, so what else would you expect?

This was a must do. Really simple booking process and all gear was included and sanitized. The maximum amount of passengers for our boat was 6, including us which was really nice and low key. There were plenty of turtles and fish to see. I would highly recommend this to anyone!
