We had an amazing time on our dive with Cpt Anthony, Brian, Matt, and Tom. A member of my party was doing the Discovery Diver and was very nervous about getting sea sick. They were very patient and understanding and had many remedies to help with sea sickness. The dives were amazing, We loved seeing all the fish and eels... More

We booked this trip thru Aulani, the resort we were staying at. The resort did not give us a lot of info - we didn't ask, so they probably had the info, but didn't offer it. It is a large boat - can fit up to 80 people (we had 42 on our trip). There are 2 nice bathrooms. We... More

We were recommended to go here by our resort. After a little research and some reading on T.A., I felt that with such little negative feedback that maybe those folks had super high expectations and my wife and I don't. Matt picked us up and drove us to the harbor, giving us a little history on the way. That was... More

Had an amazing 2 hours with Josh, Nick and Shannon. Small group out on a catamaran. TERRIFIC way to do it as all on board got to see plenty. Saw turtles and whales, even saw one breach. Just loved it. Snacks available on board as well as complimentary drinks. Alcohol needed to be purchased. Did the early morning trip which... More

We were two adults and two kids 10 and 12, and we had the whale watch tour. Great boattrip in a bit of a rugged sea, but the crew found a calmer spot - and there we saw both dolphins and humpback whales. Magnificent!

Thanks to Dave and the crew for making our two hour trip so enjoyable. We first had the wonderful experience of watching Dolphins swim just in front of the bow of the catamaran and then got to see a humpback whale playing on its back, splashing its fins on the water. All in all a great experience and one I... More
