This was great! We went on the morning cruise at 8:15am. I highly reccommend it. We saw lots of fish. They do toss a little food into the water to attract the fish. So that was fun to watch them eat. We also had a pod of dolphins swim with the boat for about ten minutes. They love to swim in the wake of the boat. We also saw sea turtles. My point is you will see wildlife. The captain was friendly and the mate was informative and humorous. I liked the authentic Hawaiian music they played as we motored out. They were both very chill and let you enjoy the scenery. The boat was clean and well maintained. There is also plenty of seating and there is a head on board (restroom). The marina and kiosk is easy to find and there is parking right in front but of course it was early. It is about $1.00 an hour. Be aware - don't park on the side where there are no meters. It looks like free parking but it is for registered vehicles only. Be aware there are viewing compartments where you look down into the ocean. There are not huge sections of the bottom of the boat which are glass. I know these exist elsewhere on other islands and in other parts of the world. But the water is very clear and you can see all the way to the bottom and you do see wildlife. And there are several of these compartments and many prople can stand around each one. My eight year old had a good time and my wife loved it. And even though the seas were a little choppy the ride was somewhat smooth. This is due to the design of the boat. Great trip and good viewing! Please tip! We went on many tours and noticed how many people did not tip. Covid hit the islands hard so adding a little extra back into the economy helps. We highly reccommend this tour!

To be honest, I wasn’t really expecting from from this experience. But since it was pretty cheap and we got to go on a boat, we figured why not? Check in was easy, be wary that there is limited parking around the area and you will have to pay. We luckily snagged the only spot left before our check in time! They had us sign our names and gave us a ticket type wooden thing. We loaded the FULL boat, which was the only thing I wasn’t a fan of as the boat before us only had maybe less than half capacity. Our captain and his wife were amazing hosts, by the way. So thank you to them! The boat ride wasn’t bad at all, I thought I would’ve gotten sea sick but it was pretty great. We got to see a couple turtles and lots of fishes by our boat! I highly recommend staying on the sides of the boat compared to the middle area because that’s where you see everything. There was lots of history and learning we got on the boat as well. I would definitely recommend this! Definitely try the earlier times as the best before us got to see some dolphins!
