Very nice excursion, well priced. Captain Troy and crew were excellent. We didn't see Mantas on first day and we're able to book next day, as they have a guarantee that you will see a manta ray(we saw two, which is average). Small group tour of 6. Fresh pineapple and beverages. It is only 5 minute ride to the area... More

We had an amazing trip with Tony and Troy. It was a first time snorkeling adventure for the two of us and we really enjoyed it. The boat was comfortable and well equipped. Mahalo for the memorable experience. Phil and Judy

The initial service received by the Sea Paradise staff was terrific, but things declined rapidly once we were in the water for the manta snorkeling. Guide Alex rapidly explained that another your group had "Good lights, too" and suddenly, our little group of 6 became an ever larger party. Other tours attached themselves and the water was a swirling mess... More

Thank you for taking your time to review your tour. We are sorry to hear that another guide was not conscious of their surroundings, getting finned is no fun. If you ever find yourself in that situation again, I find giving the offenders fin a little tug helps to make them aware of how close they are to you and... More

I work a snorkel boat out off Maui but I've never seen anything like this. They swam so close to us. Unbelievable experience. Captain Tony and First Mate Alex were great. They were fun, enthusiastic, very informative and professional. We did the moonlight tour. It was a bit chilly but they provide wet suits for the swim and hot coco... More

The Manta Ray swim wasn't even on our "list" originally, but after hearing folks rave about it, we decided to go. Wow, I am so glad we did, as this ended up being the most incredible experience of a very full week of "peak" experiences (pardon the pun). These huge, graceful beings, swimming and barrel-rolling directly (within inches) underneath you... More

We did the afternoon snorkel and sail. There were 5 passengers and 2 crew members on our boat and I was pleased that we were not on the other tour boat which had to have at least 50 passengers. The crew was friendly and professional and we really felt like we had a personal tour of some beautiful fish. The... More

This was the Best tour & being a small group was really special (6 max). Thanks to Cory & Captain Mike for looking after us so well. We were made feel very special. For one who couldn't snorkel, the viewing board was AWESOME! Highly recommend this tour, you won't be disappointed. We did the afternoon snorkel tour.
