A brilliant afternoon and a must do! The boat trip to Kealakekua Bay was exhilarating and the snorkelling was equally as impressive! Captain Dave and Buddha ensured we all had a great, entertaining and informative afternoon, helped by the provision of a prescription snorkelling mask for my daughter! Thank you!

Our crew was funny, accommodating, and knowledgeable! They made sure we had a great time and had snacks for us on the boat. There were kids on our boat and they were really great with them too. They made sure everyone had a great time - highly recommend!

I was planning on saving my money and taking the trolley from our cruise ship to the beach for a day of beach snorkelling. Our excursion desk talked me and my wife into taking the Zodiac snorkel. Zack and Tatum did an excellent job of making a memorable day . The snorkelling was great ... The best so far on... More

Dave and Davanti are excellent guides and made an extra effort to get us close to dolphin pods and provided a lot of local commentary with a great sense of humor. The snorkeling along the... More

We were very fortunate to have Capt. Collin and Jen on our excursion. It was one of the highlights of our trip. Capt. Collin's knowledge and expertise and his passion for the ocean made this trip even more unbelievable. Not only were we the first ones out and had the reef to ourselves to snorkel but we were the last... More

The zodiac is a wonderful transport for snorkeling. It's fun and fast and then you arrive at your snorkeling spot which is just glorious. Beautiful, clear, warm water. The crew was friendly, helpful in making sure everyone had their equipment on properly.
