Well run excursion. Very friendly staff. Easy on line booking and follow-up by the staff. Good value. I've had the chance to dive and snorkel in many parts of the Pacific and in the Caribbean and have dealt with various operators. For an approximately 4 hour trip, these folks did well. Good value and they did what they said they... More

No words to describe this experience. Took this excursion by the end of january and had a wonderful time. Worth every penny. I have seen hundreds of dolphins, turtles and whales. The dolphins get so close to the boat that you feel like dreaming. You can jump on the water and swim really close to them Unfortunately, I had just... More

I have brought guests 2 different times and was hoping the second time would be as good as the first, and turned out to be even better. We saw lots of dolphins and then went whale hunting since it was whale season. We've lived here 9 years and been on several whale cruises, but this was by far the best.... More

Outstanding. We not only saw Dolphins but we're able to swim with them, along with fish and sea turtles. We saw two whales and were treated with an incredible show from them -- breaching again and again, just unbelievable. If we had more time we would do this excursion again before we headed home. Also, the guides were top notch.... More

I took my daughters (8 and 11) out on the Dolphin Excursion in January. They had a great time. Not only did we see a good sized pod of small dolphin, we saw a few humpback whales and a bunch of turtles. The young crew on the boat was very friendly to my daughters, and really went out of their... More

This was what I was most looking forward to when I booked the trip to Hawaii but this ended up being one of the least favorite things we did there. We had tickets for a Monday morning tour and we were picked up at 5:30am by Mandy. Mandy was lovely. We picked up several other people and then drove the... More

We went on a lovely Sunday morning, but the waves were a bit rough. Unfortunately too rough to snorkel. The captain decided it would be too risky getting us all back in the boat. That being said, we did some whale watching and dolphin watching and had a fabulous time. The crew was friendly and we had some fun. I'm... More
