We went on the snorkel/sail trip. The staff are very friendly and helpful and funny. We saw whales and dolphins and that in itself made the trip amazing. The snorkeling was fine. The boat is clean and fun to ride - breakfast and lunch were included along with an open bar after snorkeling and it was all good! It was... More

Aloha! Thanks for taking the time to provide us with feedback about your Ocean Sports Snorkel Adventure. We're really glad you enjoyed the cruise, the crew, and the whales and dolphins (what a treat...during the spring time, we often see Humpbacks, but getting to see dolphins too is really pretty rare). We hope to see you again on another adventure... More

We went out on the Adventure Snorkel on the Catamaran out of A'Bay and had a wonderful time! This is a 3 1/2 hour trip. The crew for this tour were just amazing! They worked so hard to meet everyone and help everyone in anyway they could. We rode out, for about an hour, to a snorkelling spot, tied up... More

Capt. Ryan and his entire crew were awesome! They were very attentive, professional, friendly and even fetched our cocktails for us! I truly appreciated that they did not harrass the whales, rather gave them plenty of space to breach and dive. This was my first snorkeling experience and I could not have loved it more. My favorite part was being... More

We went out on the morning tour when the whales were most active and the water the calmest. We saw many whales including a calf and mother. A continental breakfast is provided. We all were VERY surprised when two whales were under the boat and suddenly came up for air right next to us. No one expected that and no... More

From the moment we stepped onto A'Bay and took a look the Sea Smoke anchored out in the water, we knew we would be in for a lovely experience. We were not disappointed! On Dec. 18, while friends and family back home were digging out from another snow storm, we set out on a beautiful snorkeling trip with 20+ other... More

I highly recommend this snorkeling excursion! The service was outstanding- Special thanks to Kane, Captain Jeff, and Ikaika for making my (sometimes grumpy) grandparents feel comfortable and ensuring their satisfaction with the trip. The snorkeling was really great, I saw a variety of fish, coral, and a Hawaiian Sea Turtle! The crew was very helpful with educating us on what... More

Many thanks to our catamaran crew Patrick, Ryan, Angelica, Kane! They were outstanding tour guides - very informative, friendly and attentive. After the snorkeling and time on the Black Sand Beach, Capt. Patrick took us for a beautiful sail along the coast. So peaceful without the sound of motors and good music on the radio. One thing that made the... More

The crew was great, they told us all about what we would see, what to be careful of, and just added alot of fun in the day. If this is your first snorkel trip they will help get you comfortable so you can enjoy it. We will be back every trip!!

We took the morning snorkel sail w/ Ocean Sports as a family of 5 (kids 16, 13, 11). What a great experience for All!! The Crew (especially Claire!) was knowledgeable, experienced, friendly, and easy-going. On our way out to the snorkel site, Claire briefed us on what we might see (and reassured us about what we wouldn't see!) while the... More

Fantastic experience. Great crew, very knowledgeable & friendly. Very safe even for the nervous swimmer as they provide numerous floatation devices. We had lovely pastries for breakfast then a short catamaran ride to the snorkel bay. On way there we had a large pod of dolphins swimming round & under the cat. Also fabulous flying fish. At the bay where... More
