We enjoyed seeing the beauty of the island on the drive up to Mauna Kea. We saw quite a few different types of animals and birds. The view and sunset from the top was amazing. We were a little disappointed with the star gazing because it was a full moon so you couldn't see anything. The tour guide was very knowledgeable though and we were very happy that we took the tour. I would just recommend that you check on the moon status before you book it.
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.
This trip was amazing. The Rocky Mountaineer was first rate, the staff was wonderful and very informative. The ride along the coast and then into the mountains was just breathtaking. Once at Whistler we took the float plane ride over the glaciers that was a once in a lifetime experience and not too expensive. Plenty of free time at Whistler to shop and eat and then on the way back we saw 4 black bears and a waterfall. A wonderful day!! Well worth the money.
