“Perfect way to end our stay in Kona”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Not sure at all what to expect, but our group of 8 (ages 21-75) could not have had a better time. It was the highlight of our entire vacation. Beth was delightful and incredibly helpful. Captain Mike was confident as he navigated unusually rough waters. The swim with wild dolphins was very respectful to the animals. Our time snorkeling at Captain Cook was beyond words!! This was an experience we will remember for a very long time.

“Fun with Splasher's Ocean Adventure!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 26, 2012

Had a great time with Captain Mike and his "crew' Beth! Snorkeling with, and seeing the dolphins was great! Seeing all the beautiful fish by the Captain Cook monument was amazing! And, Captain kept in touch with other captains to try to find some whales. We did see a spout on our way back to shore, but could only spend a few minutes waiting for a whale to resurface. they were friendly and knowledgable. I would do it again!

“Night Diving fun for all generations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 24, 2012

The folks at Splasher's were great and made this a great activity for all three generations on our trip. Everyone from the 13 year old to the grandparents were raving. At the end of our visit this was the activity everyone raved about. The guides were great especially Louisa who gave my 72 year old Mom the confidence to get into the water. I can't recommend more highly Manta snorkeling with the Splasher's crew.

“Wonderful snorkel outing.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

This tour will be remembered for a longtime. Mike , the Captain, and Louisa were excellent at getting is to the right places and taking care of us along the way and in the water. Snorkeling among the dolphins and later along the reef was unforgettable. Highly recommended.

“5 star snorkelling in Kona Hawaii”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

This was a fantastic adventure with Captain Mike and First Mate Beth. We spent the morning swimming with dolphins at three different locations and then travelled to the Captain Cook monument to see over 300 species of fish. Lunch, snacks and drinks were all provided. The visits to the sea caves, lava tubes and sea arches were amazing. We even got to see Madam Pele's image in the rocks and the site where many sacrifices were made by the native Hawaiians to appease her fiery spirit. It was such a great trip we went back for a second trip a week later.
