Great time!

Had a great time on this excursion. The crew was outstanding. Great picture and movie opportunities of Sea Turtles and Dolphins on our late April trip.

We went on this excursion out of our hotel Marriott Ko Olina. The only issue we had with the company is that due to the heavy rains the night before it caused horrific traffic delays in us getting started in the am was the lack of communication to everyone and letting us know. (You would have thought their drivers would... More

Not happy with this "cruise" at all. The Captain, Nick, was more focused on his girlfriend than his passengers. He spoke a small blurb at the beginning, then offered an open bar and that was the last you heard from him. He had his girlfriend with him and was totally focused in her. There were a few snacks, very lacking... More
