Perfect day. Sean and John were great captains, they were fun and informative The snorkeling wasn't the best but that wasn't really what the trip was about, so it didn't matter.

The tour was well organized, thr boat was clean, and Captains Sam and Marco were knowledgeable, very skilled, and personable. Not to mention the snorkeling was amazing. In one trip we saw spinner dolphins, spotted eagle rays, sea turtles, and a monk seal. Outstanding!

No there are no nets to lie down on, but there are comfortable chairs and a small area in the front of the boat to look out from with some seating. This tour was without doubt one of the highlights of our trip to Kauai.
