We booked a tour to swim with wild dolphins, and the crew exceeded expectations. The know what they are doing and we got to swim with dolphins, manta rays, and whales. All of them are very friendly and work hard so you can have a great time. All precautions were considered and safety procedures clearly explained. If you want to... More

". My wife and I have been diving the Kona coast for several years and have done the manta night dive several times on several different boats. Overall the crew of Neptune Charlie's is now as competent and accommodating as the best we have done this dive with previously, but this report is about "Flipper". To put it simply, "Flipper"...

The manta tour was good, but the wind was up , and the seas choppy. Despite the fact that we saw a few mantas, they graciously offered another trip as a freebie. The kids really loved the whale watching. The pilot, Eric, let the kids take the wheel, and Seth, who delivers a great deal of quality info, was high... More

Our group of 7 did the Reef and Dolphin Snorkeling Eco Adventure with Neptune Charlie's in March, 2015. We had an amazing time. Our crew, Flipper, Eric, and Keith were excellent – friendly, personable, knowledgeable and great at spotting the wild creatures. We spotted some whales heading out of the harbor and then came across a manta ray on the... More

Great, friendly crew went out of their way to tailor the excursion to meet individual interests! Went out in a small group and had very enjoyable experience. Will definitely dive with them again!

Manta Ray night dive and snorkel was everything it was advertised to be. "Flipper" was great and full of information and humor, not the cheesy tour boat humor that is all too much the standard and cliché. Chris and Alexa did a great job with the experienced and not so experienced of the group. Waters were a bit choppy, as... More

We did the Manta Ray night snorkel and the Dolphin safari and had a blast on both. The crew on both trips were professional, helpful and had a great sense of humor. A shout out to Chris P. for being so awesome with my special needs sister and to our our family in general. Swimming with the mantas at night... More

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
