I would recommend this tour to anyone traveling to Kona. I went in with anxiety about snorkeling, and the tour guide saw it right when I was getting in the water. He was able to calm me down, and my wife and I both had a great time. The tour guide was fun, engaging, and knowledgeable. Don't miss this on... More

Great ride and snorkeling. Went on the Beat the Crowd Mid-day tour. Very few other boats. Got to see at least 100 dolphins which swam right next to the zodiac. The Zodiac is the way to go as you move fast and the Captain can get very close to the shore to see the lava formations. Way better Than traditional... More

This is one of the most fun, enjoyable, memorable outings I've ever had! My husband and I had an awesome time today. Captain Collin and first mate Gilligan - oops, I mean Caleb - went out of their way to make sure we had a great experience, and we saw beautiful scenery and marine life while having a ball in...

Shane and Caleb were great. Loved the Marine Sanctuary. Both guides were knowledgeable and eager to share their knowledge. Lingered for the Spinner Dolphin show. Zoomed back to the lava tubes, stories and zipping, splashing adventures. We went home with stories and great memories.

Okay, so some friends of ours happened to be in Kona for the day on a cruise while we were there and had decided to go on this raft trip. We called in that morning and they said they could fit us on. We went expecting a normal snorkeling trip, but this was so much more. We took off in... More

We had the most amazing time on this tour and would definitely do it again!! We spent the entire time laughing with our guides and when it was time to snorkel they took us to one of the best locations. The kids have not snorkeled before and they took the time to work with them so that they could enjoy... More

With Captain Collin and Blake as our guides our family had a magical experience! It was our favorite activity in Hawaii. We went to a beautiful snorkeling location and saw a pod of spinner dolphins that were surrounding our boat and jumping in the air! It was an experience we will never forget! Also there was a new born baby... More

I cannot say enough good things about this excursion. Captain Colin is a must-have tour guide. His knowledge and passion come through as he whips you around the coast. Captain Colin took us out to spot whales and we got more than we bargained for! I filmed the highlight of the excursion and Captain Colin's take on our personal encounter... More
