Had a wonderful time yesterday with Mike and Deena. Gentle waters, enough exercise to make it feel like you did something. Beautiful snorkeling. Mike is a great story teller. Appreciate them having prescription goggles available for me without advance warning.

We had a great time with Mike and Kalani on the kayaking and snorkeling adventure. We loved Mikes story about Captain Cook! It would have been nice to have them take a picture or two of us in the kayak and snorkeling. We didn't have a go pro so we left our camera behind. The spinner dolphins were jumping in... More

My husband and I did the 7 am tour with Mike and Kelani(?). They were fabulous guides. Mike is a fantastic storyteller and repository of knowledge about the place's history. We had the snorkeling area to ourselves in that early morning period. The snorkeling was fabulous and we saw spinner dolphins!

The snorkeling near the Captain Cook monument is some of the best I've experienced in the world. We kayaked across the bay to get there and it was fairly easy. The trip back afforded us an encounter with a pod of spinner dolphins. The only part that was less than spectacular was our guides. They were perfectly competent but on... More

Awesome trip. We are so glad we went on the Kayak trip instead of a motor boat trip with 50+ people. With the 7 am trip we had the bay to ourselves for most of the morning . We saw 20+ types of fish as well as Dolphins. our guide was great and we appreciate her taking us out.

Our tour with adventures in paradise was absolutely amazing. Mike and diana were super friendly and knowledgeable. We only booked it the day before but we chose adventures in paradise as they were reasonably priced and it had great reviews. We set of early on the 7.30am kayak, and we were super glad we did as we were the first... More

We did the 7am 4 hour tour and loved it: - great guides (Mike and Kalani) who were knowledgable, enthusiastic (particularly when telling tales of Captain Cook) and made everything very easy - got to the monument hours before huge crowds arrived on boats - reef and snorkelling was awesome (got an hour and a half due to being a...

Cook's Bay is an amazing place to snorkel any day of the week, but our morning kayak and snorkel trip with Mike and Deana made it even more special. From beginning to end they ensured we had a safe and fun trip, highlighting the biology and history of Cook's Bay in a way that made it come alive with more... More
