The kayaking was fun and the snorkelling was excellent, however, getting in and out of the kayaks can be tricky because of the slippery lava rocks at the beach. Also, getting out of the kayaks at the end of the trip is tricky because of the tides and swells. Water shoes are a must for this activity because of the rocks. The introductory historical presentation was particularly informative, and unexpected. The guide was very knowledgeable and personable. Bringing a disposable waterproof camera would be a good idea.

What a great day! Loved the zodiac raft and being so windswept jetting through the ocean to our snorkel location. The history and information was great but the snorkel was second to none. We were lucky seeing dolphins up close the moment we left the harbor then upon arriving at Captain Cook monument were greeted with more dolphins and an array of gorgeous fish along the beautiful reef. Thanks guys

This is for the athletic type of person. Crew bored. Broke loose a bit after we as a group started asking questions and they realized we for the most part had all snorkeled before ....

Capt. Ken and 1st Mate Buddha were fabulous! We have been on other snorkling trips, but nothing compares to the Kealakekua Bay experience. We saw dolphins, goats and seabirds along the way, then TONS of beautiful coral and fish in the bay. It was a nice mix of fun and education by the crew and a fantastic day overall. Beat the Crowd sailing was definitely a plus as the big catamarans left -- along with their crowds. Thanks! See you again soon....

We had a great time. The zodiac was very comfortable. We saw whales and dolphin which was very exciting. The snorkeling at Captain Cook's monument was just outstanding. Must have seen over 20 different types of fish and beautiful coral. Our guides were great (Colin and Maria). Definitely recommend this one.

Tour was a fun, informative adventure with plenty of time to snorkel and play with the critters. We saw dolphins, turtles and a score of various fish in a protected, beautiful cove. Captain Jack and Maria were wonderful hosts who spent a great deal of time explaining not only the creatures we saw, but the local history and landmarks as well. It was well worth the $.
