Be prepared to get a little wet as you board the ramp onto the glass bottom boat that will take you to the catamaran where your snorkle and sailing adventure will begin. A simple continental style breakfast was served as we powered on to the snorkeling spot a few miles north of Anaehoomalu Bay. The captain educated us on the... More

We have done many a snorkel trip over the years, and particularly enjoyed this one. The snorkelling was great, of course, but the staff were amazing and went the extra mile. We particularly enjoyed the breakfast and lunch served on the boat, and the free cocktails and drinks while sailing back really hit the spot. Well done.

This was a nice snorkel trip. Would have liked to sail more. Staff was accommodating and chocolate chip cookies were great

Had a great time snorkeling with this group. This review is to say how pleased I was with the staff of our boat! My daughter did not like snorkeling at all!

I love snorkeling, and while there is plenty to be done from shore, I really enjoy being able to go out on a boat for different locations. This loading location was perfect for us as we were in Waikoloa. The crew was extremely entertaining and very helpful. We enjoyed a snack on the way out, and a long time for... More

This is a great way to see the Hawaiian waters, the indigenous fish, and beautiful coral. The crew was very friendly, knowledgeable and really there to assist. We started out with a light continental breakfast, snorkeled in a cove out of the wind, then came back aboard with a nice lunch waiting along with an open bar. The sails were... More

We rented snorkel equipment and pretty green to snorkeling. My partner has a mustache and we didn't even think about that being a problem. When we got to our snorkel location at 69 Beach and went to put our stuff on when my partner realized it wouldn't work. Unfortunately, I snorkeled alone. Got back to return our equipment and mentioned... More

The catamaran was ideal for this trip. Lots of room for the group and good access in and out of the water. The waves were high so the crew took us to a secluded coral reel, with lots of protection. On the way, we encountered whales swimming by and OS staff know how to respect wildlife. They served a light... More
