    Very knowledgeable crew who made sure we got to so swim with the dolphins and the had time to snorkel. Well worth tie money.

    Our guides were so friendly and knowledgeable. The water was gorgeous. They give you swim noodles so you can float above water and just dunk your head in. The food spread they had ready for us was amazing!

    So much fun. We saw saw so many Dolphins. While snorkeling we saw eels and lots of fish! Water was very clear. The captain and his team were nice, helpful and provided everything you needed. They took us along the coastline and showed us additional landmarks as well as Captain Cook monument. All around excellent excursion. I definitely recommend this one if you are trying to decide which one to pick.

    For anyone that likes snorkeling this is a trip you will want to do. We snorkeled and saw several dozen dolphins including some that came pretty close up. The reef was very clear and had interesting fishes.

    Dre and Captain Laura were great! Due to confusion on our part, they accommodated us by picking us up at an alternate site. While watching out for our safety, they provided good instruction on use of the equipment and how to exit the boat. We had ample time to snorkel at the Captain Cook site. Both Dre and Laura provided good information about the sites we visited. While the dolphins were not at the expected sites, they caught sight of a pod on the way back to the harbor. We took a few minutes to watch them as swam past us. We would highly recommend this tour.

    This tour was one of the highlights of my Hawaiian adventure. We saw 4 dolphin pods and were able to view one of the pods in the water. Captain Laura and first mate Dre were the best crew. This tour is different from others as it is very respectful of the dolphins and will not chase them.

    Absolutely awesome! Captain Chris was superb,,,informative, patient and helpful. This was a highlight of our trip.

  • 23-Jul-2016

    This was an amazing tour, many many cute dolphins will be around you, my 2 teen daughters loved it so do I. Crew was very nice and very respectful for the marine life which is the reason we decided to see them in wild life rather than in captivity. We are looking to booking them again because the experience is just unbelievable.

    True to what they say! We were able to swim with the spinner Dolphins and check out some cool reefs and underwater caves!
