Our trip was with the HoloHolo tours. Their vessel, crew and provisions were excellent handling our every need in a willing and graceous manner. The skipper was quite informative. He spoke of the islands and structures, the care and concerns for the environments and made the journey quite enjoyable. The crew were fun and made everyone comfortable and accommodated each need. Everyone was friendly.
Although we didn't expect to see everything in the brochure (as the seasons were coming to an end) we did see manta rays, monk seals spinner dolphins, pods of dolphin families and several whales. The scuba time was excellent. We were well prepared and informed and completely safe (we were told that there had been 11 deaths from drowning already this season compared to only two last year).
The Na Pali coast was magnificent and Captain provided running commentary along its entire length.
I appreciated the crew's expressed concern for the sanctity of the various tribal communities, their traditions and their sacred areas. Respect for the land and the peoples was very present.
The beauty of the island areas cannot be express fully in a few words. The magnificence of God's Creation and what He has done in this part of the world is fully expressed. Enjoy it if you get the chance. Reverence it when you do. Leave it better than when you came. Celebrate it to the fullest.
