First time ever snorkeling. We had a great crew with us. Before getting in the water we immediately saw a sea turtle. While out caught glimpse of whales twice. Really fun experience!! They sell really good underwater phone containers to use under water to capture pictures and video. Lot better and cheaper than most you find on amazon as we got one for my son.

I had never gone snorkeling before so I was cautious. It was fun, easy, & safe. All the equipment was sanitized, and the Captain & crew were very helpful. It was the highlight of our Hawaiian Vacation. They served a quality lunch and the catamaran had a nice bar. We saw many colorful fish and a sea turtle underwater. Dolphins swam along side the boat and we saw whales in the distance. I hope this business survives because I would do it again on our next Hawaii Vacation.

This was my first time snorkeling ever and Ko Olina Ocean Adventures was simply an amazing company to work with. Their staff was friendly, welcoming, warm and funny! We did the morning tour for the speedboat dolphin excursion. It was a great experience for a great price and we also got to see a beautiful sunrise. We saw plenty of fish, 2 sea turtles, and a small pod of dolphins. Definitely bring a go pro or under water camera and buy the fish food they sell at the gift shop before boarding the boat. The crew was extremely friendly and funny and all very welcoming. Thank you Austin and Justin!!

If there ever was a crew that deserved the highest praise for customer satisfaction, it is the crews that run the charters at Ko Olina Ocean Adventures. My wife and I are local, and we had a visit from mainland family this past weekend, two sisters and my niece who has a handicap that doesn't allow her to walk without a lot of help. Most people might think someone with her condition could never get in the water and snorkel with the fish and the dolphins...but she'll never be convinced that she should be held back because of her disability. Last year we took the snorkel cruise with Ocean Adventures, and that crew was so amazing how they took care of my niece. Because she cannot kick her feet on her own, the guides took her under their wings and pulled her thru the water so she could see the ocean life, especially the turtles that are her favorite. This year, It was Captain Travis and his crew this past Sunday that showed her the same kindness and attention. They made sure she was got a great spot on the deck to watch the spinner dolphins- she was so excited to see them! They stayed with her the entire time to be sure she was safe and comfortable. In the water, they watched out for her again- even diving down to bring her a starfish to pet. Matt, thank you brother! Getting her in and out of the water was a struggle, but they did it with so much kindness and professionalism it would take your breath away to watch them work. Mahalo Kelii and Shannon! When they say they are a full service crew, that is exactly how all the guests were treated on board. I've been diving since 1980 and have chartered many dive trips over the years. The crews that run this charter are the best I've ever encountered. I thank them for an experience my family will never forget, and I know my niece never will. Her memory makes up for other disabilities, and she will remember this crew by name, just like last year. Mahalo to the crews of Ko Olina Ocean Adventures. Awesome!

I had a wonderful experience. The crew of the boat was very friendly and helpful. I enjoyed the spots we snorkeled and snuba at, I got to see a lot of fish and swim with them like I wanted. They took very good care of us while out in the water. Afterwards we had wonderful relaxing ride till the end of the trip.
