My husband isn't a strong swimmer and had never been snorkeling, but the crew helped get him comfortable and ready to snorkel in the water with a lifejacket and pool noodle. We both had a great time and the snacks were plentiful. They even have a shower to rinse off after you're done. We didn't end up seeing any dolphins, rays, whales, or anything unusual along the ride, but Kealakekua Bay is as gorgeous as always and all the equipment provided worked great. The crew is happy to take pics of you as well, which was nice.

What a wonderful trip!! The crew was amazing! A plethora of snacks provided. Lunch was good. Lots to drink. We stopped several places in going in and out of the final snorkel trip. Got to watch dolphins swimming around the boat and lava tubes. I would highly recommend this trip. First rate!!

The captain and crew were very nice and helpful. They made sure we were comfortable, had plenty of food. It was fun to see them participating by jumping off the side of the boat. Nice boat and good snorkeling!

Such a fun day, we saw so many fish and eels. We even saw dolphins swim past our boat while we ate lunch. The crew was very kind to us and treated us very well. 10 out of 10 recommend.

The captain and crew are fantastic and go above and beyond to make sure you have a wonderful experience. You’re offered plenty of good sandwiches, fresh fruit, snacks, and drinks. They even have hot showers on the boat after you snorkel. I highly recommend this tour. We saw a pod of spinner dolphins and snorkeled in the beautiful bay with amazing see life.

Our family of 4 had an amazing experience on this tour. Captain Simon did a great job, he was fun and welcoming. The crew were friendly and the service was excellent. We enjoyed snacks and lunch on the 4.5 hour cruise. We loved the snorkeling and saw a huge pod of dolphins! Don’t worry if you aren’t a confident swimmer, there were plenty of noodles and life jackets. The rental equipment was all new and in great condition. Highly recommend!!
