My group was very happy with every aspect of this trip. The morning dolphin and (seasonal) whale watching did not disappoint, and the captain and crew were all VERY knowledgeable and helpful. They also seemed genuinely concerned about the well-being of the animals while trying to get the best views. We were lucky enough to see a Hawaiian monk seal on our trip! The crew explained that there are only about 700-1000 remaining in the wild, and the one we saw swam right up to the boat! To give it space, the captain stopped the boat and idled back a little, and the seal followed right with us.
The meal was great, made right onboard with "local" options, like taro rolls and grilled pineapple. There was plenty of food, for sure!
The snorkeling was good, and we saw a large variety of fish, sea turtles, and other cool sights. My only disappointment from the.entire trip was that we couldn't get closer to the reef area for.snorkeling. This wasn't because the trip was lacking, though. The waters were too choppy the day we went to get close enough.
All in all, a great day, at a great value! Would definitely recommend, even with little ones. They did a great job looking out for the safety of the children onboard. I will be going again next time I am back, for sure!
