Went on the tour with my sister-in-law and 10yo nephew - we had a tremendous time and a wonderful experience. Our guide, Chris, was amazing. He was very knowledgeable and informative. We saw turtles, fish, eels as well as the beautiful Hawaiian reef. Highly recommend!

Had an awesome time on the tour with Chris! He explained a lot about the island and told us other interesting facts as well. We got to hold urchins and saw many huge turtles up close! Definitely recommend.
