Best event of the week! Casey makes sure everyone is safe and has a great time. We saw 3 pods of dolphins and were in position to swim with one of them. Also saw a manta out in the open water. The muffins, brownies, and pumpkin bread were just the right snacks after climbing out of the water. Casey's boat... More

This was a family favorite for us! Casey and his girls are top notch! We first got an amazing spinner dolphin show from the boat, then got to jump in the water and try to keep up with them! Casey then drove us to a turtle cleaning station to snorkel. So awesome!! Casey was respectful of the dolphins, turtles and... More

What a great experience. Fun boat ride accompanied with swimming with dolphins and watching turtles be cleaned by fish. The crew and captain were very nice and helpful - service with a smile! Great snacks and a cup of 100% Kona coffee to start. We will definitely be back. Mahalo!

Awesome experience with our two children (8 and 10). Crew was fun and educational, Capt. Casey was vigilant and kept the large group safe. Started by locating a pod of Spinner dolphin and spent at least an hour experiencing their majestic beauty along side them in the water. Ended with a long deep (40-50 ft) reef snorkel where we saw...

We chose this tour because it was close to our resort, and we liked the notion of a smaller vessel. We had the best time with our three children (ages 10, 12, 14). The crew was fun and professional. We had lots of interactions with dolphins, and ended our excursion on a coral reef watching sea turtles. The snacks were... More

We were sold on the Adventure X Rafting on the fact that out of all of the other rafting tours, this one was the only one that we found with a restroom onboard. But we came away with much more. Besides watching amazing spinner dolphins at possibly the closest distance in the wild, and watching tropical fishes feeding off of... More

Money well spent ! ! ! ! What an amazing way to spend time with the creatures of the sea. To see dolphins in their own world and to see it up close and personal is totally priceless. Casey made that happen for us. The snorkeling spot was one of the best it allowed me to check another item off... More

I thank The Lord for this amazing day of the glimpse of heaven in His creation here on Earth. The natural beauty of land and sea and beautiful loving and giving people. The Wow came under the sea as dolphins came near and far and a beautiful sea life of coral; fish of all colors shapes and sizes, turtles and... More

Our group did a private charter and had the most amazing time. We started out seeing several pods of dolphins and took time to swim with them several times, then out on the horizon we spotted a whale breeching. Our captain said let's go have a look. These whale are the humpbacks, 2males, a female and her baby. A whale... More

We have been on typical whale watching tours on large boats with 100+ people where they sell hot dogs fron a counter on the first deck. We decided to do something different and boy, are we glad. The AdventureXRafting Whale Watch is fun, exciting, comfortable and very informative. They leave out of the Puako Boat Ramp on the Kohala coast... More
