This excursion had a comfortable boat and enthusiastic crew. The crew was genuinely friendly, and gave us all a few laughs. They are very knowledgable on the water and in the water. Some of them stay on the boat and some snorkel in the water with you to make sure everyone is safe and doing well. We were offered drinks... More

We love to be on the water and generally one of our favorite things to do when travelling near the water is to take some type of a sailboat tour. This trip was decent, but not fantastic. What did we like: We loved being on the water. The boat is comfortable and very nice and while not spacious was also... More

Aloha, Thanks for taking the time to review your Snorkel Cruise. We're very happy that you enjoyed your interactions with our crew, and appreciated our legendary catamaran. As you pointed out, during the winter time we do experience intermittent surf along the west shores of our islands, reducing our visibility for snorkeling and limiting the number of reefs at which...

My wife and I just came off the snorkel cruise with Captain Will and his crew and it was the best. Whales, spinner dolphins (very close to the cat) and great snorkeling with sea turtles. Much better than Fair Wind as it is smaller and more personal, close to the resorts so you do not have to waste all that... More

The staff makes this a great adventure. We went on the 3.5-hour tour and the staff did a great job on the way out of talking with the kids and getting them ready for being in the water with the fish (and telling them how rare it would be to see a shark, etc.). They also did a good job... More

Everyone from Ocean Sports was so friendly and informative. Because we had a group of 5 it brought down our price to 125$/pp. Really enjoyed it and would certainly suggest them as a professional, reliable company.

Lots of fun from the moment of boarding the SeaSmoke. The crew was excellent - very informed, interesting and safety concious. We went out on a beautiful - couldn't be better type of morning, although the wind came up rather briskly around the time lunch was served. The snorkel spot was excellent - a nice variety of fish and a... More

A light breakfast on a beautiful catamaran, going to the best spot for a morning of snorkeling. What could be better? An informative talk (with pictures!) by one of the crew (very friendly, helpful and interactive) on the way. Having them in the water, pointing out creatures we would not have otherwise seen. Schools (I mean dozens and dozens) of... More

We have tried for two years now to simply rent a kayak from Ocean Sports, the first year it was 1:00 and we tried to rent a kayak and they tried to charge us $30 pp for 1 hour - which was when their "special" ended (@ 2:00). Second year, this year we walked down to the beach at 8:00... More

Aloha, Thank you for taking the time to provide us with feedback about your rental experiences. We're sorry you weren't able to rent a kayak when you visited our beach hut, but we do have a policy in place in which we will not rent kayaks, stand-up-paddleboards, or hydrobikes when the wind is blowing off shore.
