The night snorkel with the manta rays was incredible. We got to hang out with four of them. Truly gentle giants. The Adventure X crew -- Kelsey, Casey, Catherine -- were professional, knowledgeable, caring, enthusiastic and fun. So glad our concierge recommended them.

Outstanding trip yesterday. Saw whales nearby, swam with spinner dolphins (really appreciated the crew stopping to allow us a third time in with the dolphins) and also turtles and reef fish. Good equipment and crew.

Had a great time with Captain Kelsey and her crew....everyone was very knowledgeable about the humpbacks and we had quite a few sightings during our tour! Definitely recommended and a highlight for us on our trip to the Big Island!

Positive happy energy, friendliness and knowledge go a long way. This was just a plain all around fun trip with an all girl crew. The sun was shining, the breeze was light, the seas were calm and the whales were all around us. Even if...More

Hi there, not that I’m aware of. Adventure X Rafting only does snorkel trips and dolphin swims. There is a company Kohala Divers which is good up north. Otherwise down in Kona Big Island Divers or Jack’s Diving Locker.
