Just got back and had to let everyone know we had a great Manta Ray adventure with Neptune Charlie's. Captain Heidi (shout out to North Conway, NH) did a great job getting us in and out safely. Master diver "Flipper" kept everyone informed with his humor and knowledge. Chris and Lane brought out us "snorkelers" to an amazing sight. We... More

We had a full day with 3 separate activities booked with Neptune Charlie's last week and we were super impressed with the team captained by Heidi. We started off with scuba divining, including a refresher dive. The dive gear and quality is all top notch, in good condition with each BCD having its own Sunto dive computer attached to it....

Being a local, every year I try to go on a whale watch tour. This year I went on Neptune Charlies. This boat is known for its manta ray dives, and diving adventures. First of all, if I'm going out to a whale watch for 2 to 3 hours. I like boats that are a good size, with seating, shade,... More

We booked the night time manta ray snorkel and I was a little nervous but these guys totally put my mind at ease. They made me feel really comfortable and were super knowledgeable. Unfortunately we did not get to see the mantas but the company wants to ensure you see what you set out to see so they offered us... More

We dove with Neptune Charlies when we were in Hawaii. We did the manta ray dive, a two tank morning dive, and whale watching. Larry, Flipper and the rest of the Neptune Charlies team were amazing! I got really sick from the surge during our night dive, and they were very understanding and kind, helping me the entire way. The... More

I had both good and bad experiences with this company. Let's start with the good - the manta ray excursion itself. The four stars is for the boat crew. It's a smaller boat than some of the other companies so you get a more personal experience I think. The boat ride out to the spot was fun, we saw whales... More

Beautiful morning dive. Dive Master "Flipper" provided a great time under the water. On our 1st dive we got a look at 3 hammerhead sharks in the distance. Then saw an ell & octopus swimming out of the rocks. And we crossed trails with a Devil Scorpionfish. Amazing how it blended into the background so well. After a quick movement... More

Captain Heidi, First Mate Seth, and Flipper provided exceptional service for our 2 tank dive off the Kona coast! They were fun, informative, and took special care to ensure that our experience was "da best"! We were able to see whales and dolphins in addition to the amazing undersea wildlife - including a real life "merman"! It was a memorable... More

The crew, ocean animals, and the weather couldn't of been any better! We got to hear the whales, see the whales up close, see full breaches, see spinner Dolphins and bottle nosed Dolphins, and even a turtle! That crew was fun, energetic, accommodating and full of info. I've done the manta ray night snorkel with these guys too, and it's... More
