This snorkel tour was the highlight of my trip to Kona! Captain Kendra was a delight, and made sure we all had a great time. The snorkeling was excellent and we even had a dolphin sighting. Highly recommend this tour!

Had an amazing time. Captain Kendra and Skyler were great. The two snorkeling sites were both unique and the sea caves we saw while traveling between the sites were beatiful. We were also lucky enough to see Hawaiian spinner dolphins. Can't recommend this snorkeling tour enough.

Very helpful and conscientious. My daughter wears glasses and they had vision corrected masks. The boat was very comfortable and the skipper and crew were the best. The... More

Our guides (JC and Kevin) took excellent care of us and kept us entertained. They were very informative about wildlife, the various land formations ( sea caves, lava tubes etc) we could... More

Our Captain Dave was a great guide and captain. He lead us along the coast to 3 separate snorkel locations and explained what we were seeing. His long time knowledge of the area was very apparent and his friendliness was very evident.

Did the morning 4 hour tour. Time goes by real fast. Our captain and first mate JC and Hope were awesome. They took us to two great snorkel spots for about 45 minutes each. JC popped the nose of the boat into a few sea caves while in route and told us great stories. Glad we did this as opposed... More

We had an amazing time. The boat was fun, we got to see so many things up close and personal with being on a small vessel. The sea caves, snorkeling, history and personal attention of JC and Jesse was awesome. I felt I wanted to go again the next day. I highly recommend this company!!!! Everything ran smoothly and the...
