Would highly recommend the whale watching trip.
Awesome crew; very safety conscious, friendly and knowledgeable. Obviously love what they do....
Limited whale action on our trip but they did what they could and we still had a great time.

Thanks Tess, Jess and Lindsay for a fun trip!

This was our second whale watch trip with Adventure X which leaves out of Puako. We saw lots of blows, tails, and even a couple of breaches! Great crew and great boat. Highly recommend!

Did a whale watch 2 hour tour yesterday. It’s still early in the season so we knew going in there weren’t that many whales around yet. Went out & within 20 minutes we spotted 2 whale couples. We stayed with them for a bit. They weren’t acting particularly excited to show us more than a back & tail fin. Went to another spot, no luck. Had pineapple, soft drinks, a vegan wrap, cookies - snack, then headed back. They kept the tour going about 30min longer & wouldn’t you know .... saw a whale breach & two came up right by our boat. It was awesome!!!! They also dropped a microphone in & we listened to whale sounds live. Such a wonderful experience! Great crew, great attitude & positive everything! Jessica, Lindsey & captain John did a great job! Would definitely recommend!

We had an amazing time on the dolphin snorkeling trip. The crew was professional and hospitable. Everything about the experience was phenomenal. We dropped into the ocean three times to swim with the pod of dolphins as they ventured back to the shallow waters after a night of feeding. Then we snorkeled near a reef ledge with sea turtles and all kinds of tropical fish. We had a some extra time and decided to look for a humpback whale, but had no luck. The drinks and snacks were great. The boat was small but comfortable for the 20 passengers and 4 friendly crew. I strongly recommend this outfit, because they are very careful to protect the wild dolphins. For example, they stop swimming with dolphins after 10:30 am so as not to perturb them as they begin to go into sleep mode.

We did the manta ray night snorkel and it is definitely worth doing! AMAZING! Crew was nice and very knowledgeable. The mantas were absolutely beautiful! Also the boat ride out to the manta was also beautiful going out at sunset and riding back under the stars. 10/10 RECOMMEND! Honestly my favorite thing I have done on the island so far
