We took the morning Hula Kai snorkel trip on June 30, 2014. Everything was wonderful. We got seats on the upper level, which were in the shade, but afforded a full 360 degree view of the area. The crew and equipment were top notch. We visited two sites. They tie up the boat right over the reefs, so there is... More

My husband and I went on the morning snorkeling adventure and had a great time. The captain was very informative and extremely pleasant. Snorkeling spots were very nice and we saw many fish and a couple turtles. Lunch was delicious and plentiful. It really was a wonderful trip overall. I highly recommend it.

We took the Hula Kai today for the morning snorkel trip. The crew was extremely friendly, clearly knew their business and very entertaining / accommodating. After a short ride south along the coast (about 20 minutes) we had our first stop for an hour of snorkeling and breakfast. Food was good, not gourmet but what do you expect on a... More

This was our second cruise. I tried SNUBA, loved it. It took a little getting use however thoroughly enjoyed it! Food was good. Snorkeling was awesome. Captain and crew were helpful and informative. Definitely worth the money! Would go back for a third time.
