We were staying at the Marriott Resort so this was easy, right off their beach. I am mobility impaired so was worried about getting in and out of the water, but it was easy with the steps and handrails right inbetween the hulls of the catamaran. Could not have been easier. There were plenty of fish and coral and sea... More

I have snorkeled before, but this was my first time on the ocean side of the reef. The catamaran crew was very knowledgeable and they took us to a great spot. After our snorkel we had lunch aboard the "SeaSmoke" and then saw several whale pods on our return trip to Waikoloa. This was a great way to start our... More

We saw humpback whales and spinner dolphins on our way to snorkeling. The crew was great with explaining the wildlife and interacting with guests. They participate in the snorkeling and help show the guests urchins and sea cucumbers.

Tried to rent paddle boards early in the day but were denied because they were only offering their Aloha package until 2pm which meant a certain fee for all rentals and 30 min max for any particular item and all of their boards were out.

These guys know how to make a trip out on the open ocean a breeze! They have all the gear, floats, etc. The crews and receptionists and their attitudes and demeanor were charming! The Dolphins are wild, and will only come close to you if they want to, but being in the water with them is extraordinary and the experience... More

My husband, 12 year old daughter and myself had an absolutely wonderful time on the 3 hour snorkel tour! The crew was fantastic; always checking-in and so knowledgeable.

Ocean Sports has masks, snorkel, fins, boogie boards, kayaks, SUPs, hydro bikes right on Anaehoomalu Bay in Waikoloa. Prices are good and they have special days where you can rent everything for 4 hours for one price. Service is fast and friendly and worth a try while in beautiful Waikoloa, HI
