Beautiful small private boat tour by a local guide/captain. We got to see things that you wouldn't otherwise on a big boat. Great snorkeling at Captain Cook Monument.

Our guide Silas was awesome, it ended up being a private tour for just the two of us. Silas is very knowledgeable about Hawaiian history and customs.
