The captain is absolutely awesome, takes a large staff on board so that each person riding has someone with them the entire time. One lady onboard didn't know how to swim and even she said she was so glad she did it. The water at the spot they do this is so clear, great experience and we would definitely do this again next time, the captain was that impressive. The pictures they took were just okay, it ran us $80 for 3 people and the cute video, but there are only about 2 fish in the pictures and not great positioning to avoid the glare on the helmet or bubbles so its hard to see the person. But would definitely go again next time.
When you enter the parking lot, you have passed Costco and gone in the one with the McDonalds, you want to stay down near the McDonalds, it is a stretch of stores and their picnic table check in is reached by going down the side of the shops at the McDonalds end, there is a store at the furthest end with almost the same name- that is not it, stay down along the end Closest to McD and go around at that end, their table will be right along the water at that end.

Crew is fantastic, experienced and deliver quite an encounter with tropical fish and sea turtles. It was an exhilarating time. Divers very professional, loved every minute of it and highly recommend Island WaterSports. Some of the best pictures taken up close and just to experience the time in the water. These AquaScooters are something and so easy to use.

We booked a fishing charter with Captain John. We had a great time and caught one of the biggest Wahoo's (Ono's) Captain John had ever taken in the boat. He was friendly and attended to every need. Fish catch custom's are different than anywhere I'd taken fishing charters before. Island Water Sports filleted our fish for a small fee and we took home many meals of fish. Do check that wherever you book a fishing charter in Hawaii if that is something that interests you. Will book again when we come back.

I've done similar scooter adventures in other locations and was disappointed in this one. Previously, the tour operator would have a scuba diver swim in front of the group and guide the scooters in a specific area. When I first got into this scooter, there was no one or nothing in sight. I could not see other scooters, the boat or any of the divers so I was completely disoriented. I saw a lot of fish because they have a chain bag with bread or fish food in it that attracts the fish near you. Also, they had 10 scooters and 30 guests and we were in the last group, so it seemed like a long wait. We did some snorkeling during that time, but the waters were rough and there was a significant current, so even the snorkeling wasn't very pleasant. I wouldn't take this tour again unless they had a scuba diver actually guiding the group around so they would see something.

Great fun, nice staff. Overall, it was a really fun activity. Time flies, but it feels that you have the right amount of time on the scooter. While you wait for your turn, or even after, you can swim or snorkel (goggles and fins are there for you, free of charge)
We really recommend the tour.
Absolutely worth the money

Such an incredible experience! The staff are super patient and compassionate. This activity was a bit scary for someone like me, I'm not a great swimmer and I also have a panic disorder but the divers who accompanied me were so sweet and understanding, walked me through the whole process and checking on me the entire time. I strongly would recommend anyone do this activity, it's a once in a lifetime experience that my daughter and I will never forget.

This was our first time doing the Submarine Scooters and although it was a lot of fun the water was very choppy and as a result my daughter and myself got sea sick pretty bad. Also doing the Submarine Scooter can be a bit nerve racking, especially for small kids because you have to dunk your whole head under water and swim into the dome. But once you're in the dome the scooter is a blast and the staff is super helpful and friendly also. If I did it again, I would definitely take sea sickness pills the night before and the morning of also. One couple didn't even get to ride the scooter because they were so sea sick they spent the entire time at the back of the boat throwing up. I felt so bad for them.
The water was so choppy it was too difficult for my family to snorkel while we waited for the other people to take their turns on the scooter so we just sat on the boat fighting through the sea sickness. Luckily our family went first so when we went into the dome of the scooter we weren't too sea sick yet. But once we got out, my daughter had to toss her cookies as they say and she was not happy at all. So take your sea sickness pills if you need them and you should have a blast.

Our guide Johnny was great and best sport fishing trip I've been on. Caught 2 mahi mahi and 3 nice Ohno. One was 40lbs. The only downside be aware if it's 45 min to the good fishing it will be 2hours rough boat ride back in.

This was such a great time! This was my first time underwater in the ocean. I’m an ok swimmer but they treat you as a non-swimmer. The staff were so much fun and made you feel safe. One of my favorite experiences on the island.
