Awesome company with which to book your Hawaiian adventures! Dre and the captains, who run the Zodiacs, are professional and fun. They ensure you have a great time and work with you if the weather does not cooperate. Manta Ray Moonlight tour was absolutely terrific! Do recommend taking Dramamine to ensure no sea sickness happens. You do not want to... More

Loved this experience! Guides were knowledgeable and humorous. Everyone wanted the best for the guests. Great experience with cool guys - and the mantas were phenomenal. They swam so close. Beautiful and majestic creatures. This needs to be on your bucket list!

First off, these guys have an amazing guarantee policy. Most companies have a 50% off or free trip during the same vacation. I went a few years ago and saw ZERO manta rays (some consolation, saw some whales on the way to the spot) - basically got cold looking at fish for 45 minutes. I was unable to go again... More

The sunset Manta Ray snorkel began with close up views of whales! The Ray viewing was incredible. We were treated to 45 minutes of non stop action with the rays continually coming within inches of our faces! Dre and Sandy knew exactly where to find the Rays and how to position our group for maximum viewing. As an added bonus... More

We were really pleased with Splashers' Morning Dolphin & Reef Snorkel. Great value! Captain Dave and Crewman Matt were lots of fun and really took good care of us. I was a little apprehensive to snorkel because it had been many years, but they gave me all the information and reassurance I needed to have an exceptional time. We saw... More

If you book with anyone else you're doing it wrong!! We did the sunset trip to snorkel with manta rays and it was absolutely amazing! We were originally scheduled to do the moonlight trip but received a call early in the day to let us know we were the only 2 people booked and they wouldn't be able to run... More

Incredible. Awesome. We were blessed in that weather cooperated and seas were not that big. Going the later trip also had less other boats and got quite the show. Crew were attentive, gear was clean and In good condition, all precautions for safety met. We had a great time riding the zodiac and the captain definitely knew how to manage... More

It was kind of a stormy night, so the ride out to the mantra rays' hangout, next to the airport, was bumpy. But the manta rays put on a great show for us. There were eight or nine of them under our surf board-raft at a time. They swim so close, it is beyond amazing. Truly another world. Our crew... More
