We booked the family morning tour for our family of three. The trip from Honolulu to Wainiea took just over 1.5 hours so make sure you give yourself plenty of time. The marina was not in a rough area of town as some of the other reviews stated. The boat itself was an older catamaran that was very clean and in very good shape. The crew size was Three and we had another family of three for a total of nine people on our boat. If for no other reason book this tour as they limit the size of the group. There was no crowding, no hassle and plenty of room to enjoy the scenery and the ride out to the sealife.
The crew was friendly, two younger women and a male captain (Downing). They helped us with fitting our snorkel gear and talking to us about what we were going to see. After about a 45 minute ride out to the dolphins we put our gear on and quickly saw a pod of spinner dolphins. They moved quickly past us so we re boarded and went looking for more. We were rewarded with another smaller pod that we viewed for a longer time. Two of the dolphins came within about a foot from my son. He happily exclaimed that the dolphins were checking HIM out. What a memory! After getting back on the boat the crew prepared us a lunch of pulled pork, fruit and snacks. The last dive was to a reef where we got to a sea turtle and lots of fish. The crew was always willing to take pictures of us, both inboard and on the water. You could tell that they loved what they did. It showed. My family had an experience they will never forget. Thank you for that. Highly recommended!!!!!
