We took this excursion with our family. There were 4 of us and we had a great time! The boat is very large and beautiful. The crew was great and very accommodating. They decided to take us to a different place from where they normally go - a bit farther down the coast. We didn’t see any dolphins or turtles, as advertised, but the tiny fish that we did see were very beautiful. The day was gorgeous and we made lasting memories.

I had a fantastic experience with Kona Offshore Adventures. The only negative thing I can say about it was that I didn't really care much about the tour portion, and would have preferred to spend more of that time snorkeling.

Kona Offshore Adventures were the most reliable, affordable, and flexible excursion group. My wife booked this excursion 6 weeks prior to our cruise in the Pride of America, NCL. They were in constant communication with us because of the original scheduled time NCL-POA cruise line of 8AM arrival and tendering would have been 830AM, on port in Maui, all of their excursions starts at 8AM. We requested a late private excursion and ended up on the day of the trip NCL-POA got there earlier than we anticipated anyways. We called them at 6AM and someone actually picked up, and instead of them coming later they even adjusted the time for 8:30AM!! Captain Sean and David were very flexible with the trip. It was amazing! The trip was all about swimming dolphins which we could not really do because of the other excursions around us. Captain Sean took us to a less crowded area and to our surprise we found more amazing sea creatures like a pack of whales that swam around us and below us!!! We experienced swimming with pilot sharks, bottle nose dolphins, school of whales, and two spotted gigantic zebra shark that is very rare even for the locals to find. Captain Sean and David was in awe because they have not seen these special creatures of the sea for the past four years they have done excursions in these parts. We just believed it was such a blessing and we had a miraculous experience with these amazing sea creatures in the most beautiful time. On our way back to the Marina Captain Sean and David told us that the weather was not as great the day before and the seas were rough. The excursion lasted only 2 hours instead of 3 hours because of our cruise schedule but was well worth it! The team had a lot of snacks and drinks with them. They were very patient, friendly and knowledgable of the waters. It was an excursion of a lifetime!! This trip made our trip to Hawaii to be one of the Best Excursion in our bucket list and an amazing pre-47th birthday gift for my wife!!

We did the Private Charter / Dolphin Snorkel excursion and it was incredible! I'd highly recommend it, Captain Jeff was incredible, he not only cared about our safety on the water but made sure we were well educated about the sea wildlife, Hawaiian stories and pointed out a number of things on the way. We saw pods of Dolphins minutes after we left the harbor. We then had incredible encounters with them while snorkeling. Jeff then took us to a quiet reef away from most of the other boats, the reef was beautiful with lots of fish. On the way back we made one more quick for snorkelling as one of our passengers was dying for another pictures, and we even saw a pilot whale on the ride back. Can't say enough how great Captain Jeff was, thanks again!
