I agree with most of the reviews, swimming with the dolphins was awesome, and my teenage daughter thought it was the best. The challenge was the wind, which normally isn't an issue on this side of the island, was bad that day. Because of that, we had to try to find somewhere not too rough, and did see dolphins and...

My husband and I did this excursion on our trip to Honolulu. We did the early excursion in which the company picked us up at 5am. We were on the boat by 7am the scenery was beautiful and we saw some dolphins and turtles. I didn't have much snorkel experience but still enjoyed the trip. We have received the photos... More

The staff was totally amazing! They were upbeat and friendly. They also helped first time snorkelers feel confident and have fun. A big thanks to the staff for making this such a fun time. You do want to take beach towels to dry off in between snorkel sites. While there they had a photographer taking pictures and we were able... More

We almost missed the 7am departure. I thought we were supposed to arrive anytime before 7am but fine print says to arrive by 6:30 or you'll miss the tour. Well we made it and I'm glad we did. Tour got off on the wrong foot as we went north along the coast, even though our captain said she was hearing... More

Prompt pickup at hotel, excellent equipment, good helpful crew. First time snorkling and had no problems. Took a little while to find dolphins but found a pod with juvenile and calf. Spent about 30 min in water with them. Clear water. Would recommend this trip.

I loved this adventure! Picked up on time, given the tour of a lifetime, a great snorkeling experience. The Captain and crew were amazing and made us feel so comfortable and in capable hands! It felt like an exclusive tour and our captain knew right where to go to find wildlife. I can't praise them enough for making this the... More

We booked the early morning trip, and we were driving from Turtle Bay. We barely made it and we left an hour and a half early. We were able to see and swim with dolphins almost immediately, and we had several more chances too. We also swam with Turtles and a bunch of colorful fish. On the way back we... More

I booked this trip for our family of 7 and it was awesome! The check in process was seamless and very efficient. They got our equipment very fast and even had prescription masks if needed! We are from the Houston area, so we have been amazed with the blue water in Hawaii since we got here; but this was a... More

This trip is a must, second time I have been. This time I took my granddaughter and her friend they had such a good time. The staff are so friendly and knowledgable, they even pick you up in the morning from Waikiki and bring you back. A meal is included as well. Love this so much, it's the best on... More
