This is a MUST! The sailing, the food and the snorkeling were fantastic! We had a fabulous time on even though the dolphins weren't out! When we went to the snorkel spot we got to see Sea Turtles and lost of fish. It was the highlight of our vacation to Oahu! The crew were so accomodating and nice and so extremely helpful! The food was great and the set up was very nice! I was not expecting the service and the experience that we had. It exceeded my expectations! We will definitely come back and use this company for another snorkel trip. And next time it will be free since they provided a "Re-Ride Voucher" since we didn't see any dolphins! We had a fabulous time- the crew were a lot of fun and made it very special for us. Thank you so much and keep up the great work! You can tell everyone really like their jobs!

The crew was soooo accommodating. A few minutes late picking us up, but called to let me know. We arrived at the dock and met the "captain". it was a two person crew and they have a 6 passenger max. they made us feel very welcome. We were free to roam and poke around wherever. The open bar is essentially access to their giant cooler and liquor cabinet. If you have a particular drink you'd like to mix i recommend calling ahead or bring a mix. They insisted on making our drinks for us and a deli lunch was provided. The snorkeling guide was very knowledgeable and friendly. I have lived in Hawaii for two years and this was the best day we have had on the island.

We went on a Tuesday morn for the dolphin sail and snorkel. The trip was great! Snorkeled with sea turtles and lots of fish. Crew was professional and fun. Lunch buffet and drinks were great. BUT we did not see dolphins. For the excursion we went on they guarantee you will or you will get another excursion at same or lessor value. I was kind of unsure how many hoops they might make me jump through or if I wanted to do it again on my same vacation. But we booked again and had a great time! And this time we saw hundreds of dolphins. They made the rebooking easy and painless! Highly recommend!
