Unusually The Big Island was hit with high winds, which churned up the ocean. That meant the snorkel visibility was not of the best. However, the fabulous crew found as good a site as possible and indeed there were fish to see. Better than that, we got a close up view of a manta ray. Really cool! There were whale... More

There were four of us in our party. The trip turned out to be fantastic. Great weather. The owner-operator and crew were very accommodating. The lunch and drinks were fresh. The spot chosen for snorkeling was superb. We did see a few whales, but through no fault of the crews, they were pretty far away to get a good view.

We had a really nice time on this trip. We spent two weeks in Hawaii and this trip was one of the highlights. The crew was very nice, knowledgeable, and fun. Beautiful boat, good lunch and kid/adult drinks, great people, and amazing experience. We snorkeled with sea turtles, saw a pod of ~100 dolphins, and this crew really tried to... More

Awesome day, awesome crew. We ended up going to the Pentigon where they can only go a couple times a year due to the seas. We had a calm day and it was perfect. Saw lots of fish and the whole area is a shallow reef. You can go off by yourself or stay with one of the crew who... More

My family and I had a great time in Hawaii thanks to Ocean Sports. First, we signed up for Aloha Days in which we had unlimited use of all the fun water recreational toys for four hours. My tweens loved the HydroBikes. Then we signed up for the Snorkel Adventure and catamaran sail. It was amazing. The captain and crew... More

I cannot say enough great things about our trip. The boat was fantastic and the crew was very helpful especially if this may have been your first snorkel. We also were able to snorkel along a reef not often seen because we had perfect weather conditions. Thanks for a wonderful time.

A family of six, we took a half-day snorkel cruise with Ocean Sports on a beautiful sunny day. We left from the port on the northwest coast of the big island (about 40 minutes north of the airport). Very easy parking across the street from the cruise office and a quick shuttle to the catamaran. Guessing about 30 guests on... More

We enjoyed this so much! A relaxing ride to a beautiful reef and the captain spotted several dolphins for us. He pointed them out and steered the boat in their direction. Frankie explained some of the fish we would encounter and came into the water to let us hold different urchins. The food was basic but fresh. Drinks were strong.... More
