1st time snorkeling and what an adventure. Captain Andy moves pretty quick so hang on to the ropes. Kaleo was helpful with gear and snacks. Fun day out on the ocean with spectacular views.

My husband and I had a coupon for 2 on the Captain Zodiac Raft tour. I was pretty hesitant at the thought of being in a small raft in deep blue sea. It was our 2 year anniversary so we decided to use it to spend quality time. The raft is set up for people aboard to sit on the... More

This shore excursion was the highlight of my trip to Hawaii. The ride itself was a blast, zipping along the coast at 30+ miles an hour, getting up close to sea caves, and also watching humpback whales and spinner dolphins. Once we got to the bay for snorkeling the water was crystal clear, and there were fish every where I... More

Captain Colin and his mate Buddha showed us the most amazing whale adventure! I have been on 6 previous whale watches-this was by far the best. Lots of whales,tails,humps and 2 breaches near the boat! Can't wait to go again.

Great snorkeling spots, whale and dolphin sightings , and the ride on the raft ( not your grandmas Buick ride ) was... More

This was one of the best excursions I've done. We snorkeled a beautiful reef and saw lots of dolphins. Chuck and Tatum were full of information and made our trip super enjoyable. Loved it.

Great experience. Highly recommended. We felt that our guides (Chris & Sam) went out of their way to make sure our experience was unbelievable. They took us 4-5 Miles into the ocean and 10 miles south from Kona. The Cove they took us to was the cove the inspired the move "Finding Nemo" If you see and Whales or Dolphins... More

We had an AWESOME time!! We saw so many animals from the boat (Dolphins, whales, and stingrays) and while we were snorkelling we saw so many cool fish! Capt. Cook monument was great and the tour guides were knowledgable and friendly!
