I don't think the family could have had a better time with OET. We book with them every time we come to the Big Island and always have a great time. Learning something new about the island each trip out.

Amazing time swimming with dolphins. Our captain Tim and guide Aaron found the best spot away from the crowds. We must have seen 75-100 dolphins. They were extremely knowledgeable and lots of fun.
