Our snorkel tour was excellent! The staff and crew did a great job making sure everyone stayed safe and had fun. We enjoyed the small group and Will was great at pointing out the ocean life all around us. Highly recommend!

Better if spots taken were in water less deep. The spots were more for scuba than snorkeling. Staff very friendly and equipment supplied was good.

Our group was disappointed with Z Tourz since we paid $130/ea ($390/total) and saw virtually nothing. Realizing they are not responsible for the conditions of the snorkel, we felt they should have been more forthcoming as they knew of the poor visibility due to the...More

The instructors took the time to get to know each of us on the tour. Definitely choose this company over the others on Kauai! I want to return just to be able to do their other adventures.
