I've been to a couple snorkel tours around the world but never seen a boat that was so clean and dry and comfortable. The wetsuits and snorkels were very well maintained as well. We saw 6 manta rays that night and they had your towel and clothes ready as soon as you're done. You can tell Karl really puts his... More

We just returned from Hawaii yesterday and I can't stop thinking about the evening snorkel trip with Coral Reef. I always do my research so expected a professional, well-organized trip, which it was. Karl (the captain) and Kira, our personal manta ray expert and fearless leader were wonderful. With many other boats all competing to get a good view of... More

Had a good snorkel with Karl and Kaylie, I can't remember her name with an octopus tattoo. Got real close to mantas. And they handled a couple of nimrods in our group quite well

My wife and I did a lot of research before choosing this company, and were glad we did. Unfortunately due to storms we weren't able to do the night snorkel, and were not able to really snorkel on the dolphin watch/snorkel tour, but we were happy they went out and we got a great trip out of it with a...

We did the manta ray outing with Kira on Jan. 7. I booked the day before by searching TA; I chose them based on the reviews. I had to book last minute because I wasn't sure if my 18-year old daughter would be up for it and I wanted to be sure the weather was good. The weather was good... More

Tonight my husband and I did the late Mantra Ray night tour with Captain Zack and Kira. The intimate boat only holds 6 people which we thought was perfect. No other boat was at the site when we arrived and within minutes of setting up the lights three manta ray came to feed. We were witness to amazing acrobatic displays... More

We will start with the crew, Captain Carl was amazingly funny and very entertaining. He knew the island and the ocean like the back of his hand. Both he and Eren, our snorkel guide, brought us directly into a huge pod of doplins and shortly after whales and a very pretty reef. Aside from the tour and the jokes, they... More

We went out on Boxing Day with Dave and Kira to see some Manta Rays. We loved this snorkel, it was the highlight of our trip to Hawaii! It's a small group, 6 max so its not super crowded and you dont have to wait forever to get in or out of the water. They provide everything you need including... More

Fantastic time with Captain Zack and Alicia to see the Manta rays off Kona. After we saw one and thought we had seen the best, but then whole group came and swan right into us. We won't forget this night.
