Great small boat, nice ride. Originally signed up up for snorkeling in Captain Cook bay. But got much more. Close encounters with whales and dolphins. Lots of snorkeling time. Knowledgeable captain and instructor. And a nice lunch as well. Good price for a 1/2 day trip.
This was our first snorkeling swim, and we felt very safe and comfortable.

My son and I just returned from an amazing snorkel trip with Capatain Mike and Co-Captain Rebecca. It was picture perfect. We were made to feel right at home on there boat. We swam with spinner dolphins viewed humpback whales and enjoyed a surreal snorkel in kealakekua bay (captain cooks cove). We will book with splashers again without hesitation.

What a super trip! Mike and Beth made this a memorable trip by providing great service, knowledge and loads of fun. The boat was perfect for this excursion. We swam with dolphins, had a great time snorkeling and got up close and personal with some magnificent whales with calves. It was the trip of a lifetime and this company is second to none. Good lunch, personalized attention, great crew. Highly recommend this trip!

Captain mike and Katie were our guides for a dolphin adventure tour. This trip was unforgettable! Mike and Katie did their best to show us everything we wanted. We got to swim with wild dolphins and snorkel in one of the top five places in the world. On our way back we also saw two hump back whales. Above all they were very safe while not being too pushy. They were both very friendly and funny and it made for a good attitude all day. we will defendly be back the next time we are in Kona. They provided fresh cut pineapple, sandwiches, water, chewy bars, chips, and juice. I felt very at home and I would recommend people of all skill levels to take this trip. They are great teachers for those who are not 100% comfortable being alone in the water. I can't say enough. We had a great time! :)

Hi we just returned from Kona and the highlight for us was two excursions we took with splashers. The first was a snorkle trip to captain cook. The snorkling was great but the highlight was swimming with about 100 wild dolphins. This was a whale watch/dolphin swim/snorkle all in one package. The boat is smaller then most tours and goes really fast which allowed us to do more stuff. I usually get seasick but since we moved so quickly there was no rocking movement that usually makes me sick. The staff were fun, knowledgable and very helpful and really wanted the experience to be great for the participants. The manta ray swim was really a once in a lifetime experience as there are only a couple of places in the world you can do this. It is a night snorkelling tour and the whole idea scared me, but my kids talked me into this and in the end it really was wonderful. the mantas swam within inches of you and they are huge and graceful creatures. Sort of scary but they are harmless so its only the size that is scary. We have been to Hawaii many times but this was sort of Hawaii wild kingdom style (for our urban family) My kids are 13,15,17 all girls. We havn't stopped talking about this since we did the tours. It will be a great family memory for us. the tours arn't cheap by the time you have paid for 5 but well worth it. Eat at your condo and use your vacation dollars for this. You won't remember your dinners out but you will remember this for ever!
