I took the Captain Zodiac tour on August 21, 2013 and had a wonderful time. Captain Chris and his mate Caleb were very personable and knowledgeable about the sea life that we saw. They also went out of their way to let us see the pod of False Killer Whales which were in the area (I guess they are fairly rare around there) and also we were able to see massive amounts of Hawaiian Spinning Dolphins. This was all before we went snorkeling! The snorkeling itself was extremely beautiful. I saw tons of beautiful fish and others in my party saw a turtle and an eel. Overall it was a great adventure and my only regret is that I wasn't able to convince my other friends and family who were cruising NCL with me, to come on the excursion with me. Oh well, they saw the videos I took and they'll be coming next time for sure!
