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

Boat transport to nice quiet bay with good reef and fish. Wouldn't recommend to beginners as the level of instruction and supervision was pretty basic.

We took the Glass bottom boat to get the local knowledge of the beach and see the snorkeling hotspots. It was quite a cool experience. They also rent Aqua Bikes, kayaks, snorkel gear SUPs and more. 2-3 days a week they have "Aloha Days" where for $35 dollars you can try everything they have to offer for several hours! Great...

Awesome experience with our church youth group. Ocean Sports really delivered a superb all around experience. The crew was great and they really took care of us. We will definitely book again in the future. Well worth it!!!!

My husband and I have been on many guided snorkeling excursions and I will have to say this was the best outfit as far as quality of service. There were only 12 guests on their 50' cataraman. The day was perfect and they served a nice lunch and repeatedly asked if we would like anything else as far as food... More

Our family of 8 went on the snorkel adventure and we were not disappointed. Went to a quiet location on a coral reef roughly offshore from Manu Lani. One of the crew had a marine biology degree and we all learned a great deal from him! Had plenty of time in the water and the crew joined us to both... More

Loved the entire experience, from snorkelling with the sea turtles to relaxing on the boat with a refreshing beverage afterwards. Highly recommend the experience as the crew were welcoming and professional. A highlight of our Hawaiian holiday, for sure :)

We were on one of the snorkeling outings as part of a group charter. The crew was great, and the location was beautiful! Thank you so much for taking such great care of us! We will certainly look you up again when we return to your beautiful island again.

We just returned from our first snorkeling outing. The guys at Ocean Sports took great care of us! They gave sufficient training and good support in the water. They took us to a beautiful location and had a nice array for breakfast and lunch. We would definitely travel with Ocean Sports again.

First comment is for trip advisor: my son is 12 years old. If you try to book from the trip advisor site, my son has to pay for the adult fee. If you go straight to the Ocean Sports web site, then my son has to pay for child price. So I ended up purchasing on Ocean Sport web site... More
