While in Hawaii with a girlfriend 2 years ago, I enjoyed a night time snorkel excursion with Kris and his crew - it was absolutely perfect! I just returned from another vaca on the Big Island with my Husband and was really looking forward to sharing the experience with him and didn't hesitate to book it with Sea Hawaii Rafting again. Unfortunately, Kris was on his own vaca so we had to trust in the Concierge to choose a different outfitter - Big Mistake! She booked us on the "Miss Mojo", a 6 guest fishing charter boat. Because it was such a small group we were hoping for a bit of Manta Ray and other Sea life education....Captain Mark barely said two sentences to any of us outside of securing payment. I questioned him about the Humpbacks (of which we spotted several far off) and he said " I wouldn't know about that". This guy says he is a 3rd generation Caption, born and raised on the island of Hawaii....shouldn't he know even just a little bit? He has absolutely no personality and is far from a good host.
Kris from Sea Hawaii Rafting was so full of info and thoroughly educated us on not only the Whales, Turtles and other local Sea life, but also the rules we needed to follow while in the water with the Rays - to protect both the Rays and ourselves. When we were finished, Kris had warm robes, an array of snacks and beverages (even a few adult beverages); all were greatly appreciated. You also wouldn't believe the very reasonable price that Sea Hawaii Rafting charges. I sent 3 friends to them and one of them even asked Kris to marry them on the water - It was a ceremony to remember! Do yourself a favor - if you want an awesome, one of a kind experience on the water while visiting the island of Hawaii, contact Sea Hawaii Rafting.
