Reservations were easy, adventure was amazing and the staff friendly. I would highly recommend this company for the quality of the boat, ease of rental and price. Hawaii is definitely something to see from the water. Safety briefing brought comfort to my family.

The staff do a tremendous job of explaining the boat and equipment to the level of detail you require. They took the time to get us properly equipped for
snorkeling (can also get fishing gear as well) and loaded the boat at their shop so as to avoid us carrying coolers, etc to the dock. Met at dockside and they assisted in getting us underway. Only then did our time limit start which meant four hours of actual boat rental.

The GPS and provided maps made for a fun treasure hunt to find the mooring buoys five feet under the surface. We snorkeled in two locations and did so without any others in the areas we chose to snorkel at. Both sites had adequate fish to view. The boat was well maintained and worked perfectly. The boat ride down the coast past Kona was scenic and provided a great view of the town and mountains.

The waters on this side of the island are usually fairly calm. This is a better value for money than using the tour boats to take you snorkeling if you have three or more people.

To run boats that are very well equipped in a beautiful settting. Good fishing. Plenty of scenery that you can only see from the water. Dolphins galore. Always a great time and each trip is different.
