My husband and I lucked out with Coral Reef Adventures.. we had our own private charter as we were the only people to book a trip on a Friday! Captain Ron and Erin took us out to sea and let us dive in multiple times to snorkel with the spinner dolphins. It was incredible! We saw newborns following their moms,... More

I have two reviews for this great company! Originally my husband and I were only going to participate in the Manta dive. After further consideration we decided to do the dolphin swim too. The dolphin swim is a four hour excursion from 8:00-12:00 with lunch included, sandwiches, drinks, and brownies! Captain Ron and Erin were awesome. They only take out... More

We were originally scheduled to go with Big Island Divers for the manta snorkel; however, they phoned me that day to tell me they had an issue with their boat and referred us to Coral Reef. I was a little bit hesitant to reschedule with this company that I didn't know anything about. I went ahead and booked with Coral... More

The night manta ray snorkling was absolutely incredible to see such large animals so close to you. We were able to see about 7 mantas the night we were out. I took my two children - ages 12 and 15 and they had a fabulous time. I would definitely recommend this company over the larger companies. They will only take... More

Had a great trip with Coral Reef Snorkel Adventures. It is a small boat (6 guests max although we had 4 on our trip) and you get a personal service. The boat is fast and stable in the 30 minute or so to the site. There is a bit of time 'bobbing' up and down when you arrive and whilst... More

This is a small venue with 6 passengers (only 4 when we went) unlike the dozens on larger boats. This was great because you needed time and help to get into and out of the wet suits. We saw the mantas up close with the mate providing the swimming to take us around to where they were. The captain and... More

They are knowledgeable folks and got us to where the dolphins are that would swim next to us. Spotted dolphins were spotted but shy from humans. They are hospitable, safe, and sincere folks. There were six of us and they had gear to accommodate us, so we could make several "dives" to see the sea animals and the coral reefs.... More

Our family of four- with two kids age 14 & 11 went out with Captain Ron and Erin for an afternoon of dolphin watching and snorkeling and had a first-rate experience.
