Two of the greatest experiences of our lives were, the Dolphin swim during the day and the Manta Ray snorkel at night, both booked with Coral Reef Snorkel Adventure. Kit and Shelly with whom we did the Dolphin swim were incredibly knowledgable and knew where to stop the boat so that we could swim with dolphins as they moved up... More

Great experience swimming with dolphins in Kona with Coral Reef Adventures Captain Ron Gittins and Swim Guide Erin! One of the coolest parts of the tour was when we first showed up at the area where the dophins were cruising. They swam right in front of the boat where you could sit with your feet hanging off of the front... More

Our family had an awesome experience with Coral Reef Snorkel Adventures! My husband and I and our two boys (14 & 11) did both the Dolphin Snorkel and the Manta Ray Night Snorkel. The crew for both tours were amazing! We loved the small group and individualized attention. Swimming with the dolphins was incredible! The crew made sure we got... More

My husband and I did the night snorkel with the manta rays. It was amazing! The manta rays got within inches of us! It was so amazing, it was one of the best experiences in Hawaii! The captain and the guide were so friendly and helpful and described the whole process to us. The guide basically swam us around the... More

We thoroughly enjoyed two trips with Coral Reef Snorkel Adventures! The dolphin snorkel experience with Zac and Erin was incredible - we snorkelled with lots of dolphins, a trip we will never forget. Our evening trip with Zac and Sampson was equally as memorable. Not only did we see a perfect sunset but manta rays as well! An amazing "surreal"... More

The night Manta snorkel was an awesome one of a kind experience. This tour group did whatever it took to make sure we saw at least one manta. We had the late night booking on a somewhat stormy day so had to move harbors to calmer waters. Then we stayed until miraculously Koie and Vallaray decided to give us a... More

We participated in a private snorkeling tour with this company and it surpassed my expectations. The captain and the guide were friendly, knowledgable and accommodating. The knew the local waters and reefs. The tour set expectations for seeing dolphins and snorkeling with fish. We not only saw the Dolphins but we're able to swim nearby with them! Great people to...

For our excursion with Coral Reef, my family and I met Earl and Erin (our captain and marine biologist respectively) at the harbor before boarding their boat in search of dolphins. First of all, Earl's deep passion for the Hawaiian waters was evident from the beginning and was well complimented by Erin's extensive knowledge and helpful guidance, which made for... More
