don't write negative reviews but the fact that the captain made my daughter cry (for really no reason) is compelling me to write this. Our anxiety level was high as we were all doing something new and completely out of the ordinary. There was no need to speak to her the way he did, she did nothing that called for him to turn around and snap at her in front of the whole boat. Telling her that if she had $6 million dollars she could tell him what to do with his boat...... . He made her cry, with our anxiety level and his attitude, it was awful to be trapped on a boat with him. I am so appreciative he wanted to keep us all safe, and really we were so excited for this experience as the highlight of our trip. He was totally inappropriate and I hope he has time to reflect on this and realize that we were all there to have a good time. A big thank you and positive vibes to the other two crew members who know what true customer service is, they earned the two stars.

Bill, Tanner, and Jackie provided an amazing memory for our family. It would have been chilly without the wetsuits they provide. They are professional, run a tight safe ship, and are experts in their trade. The manta rays are incredible and if you are lucky enough to be face to face with one in a barrel roll, you will never forget the awe of their beauty. Bring your GoPro!

Entire crew and boat were absolutely top notch. Super professional and nice. They only do one charter a day and leave a bit sooner than others to ensure the best possible spot and experience. The boat was the nicest we saw out at the viewing spot.

Fantastic experience. Drew, Bill, and Lakelynd made it even better with their knowledge, humor, and expertise. Thank you guys for the aloha; this snorkel is a core memory now! The rays are absolutely beautiful. You cannot miss this on your big island trip.
