What an enjoyable day on the water. The crew absolutely made our day. Great weather, a few well enjoyed splashes, and great beverages made our Hawaiian vacation complete!

It was a nice way to spend a few hours. We saw four turtles as we snorkeled. Food was good, staff was nice.

Fantastic tour. Really enjoyed ourselves. Saw tons of turtles. Only thing to note is transportation is not included when booking a groupon. Transport was 10 dollars a person . That needs to be added to the website or groupon site .

We had a blast snorkeling with the sea turtles-we couldn't believe how many we saw! The lunch wasn't much, but it was a great experience sailing on the boat for the day!

Crews are very friendly and energetic. The cruise itself is awesome. I guess it depends on luck. I had a great sunset and rainbow view due to nice weather. The food is average, but it’s enough for everyone.
