5 star rating: Highly Recommended September 2012


4 star rating: Recommended August 2015

This activity was just what we needed -- the previous days had been quite hectic, so it was relaxing and educational. Saw quite a few fish and some turtles. My recommendation is to give a better description on how to find the actual location of where to board the boat. We had been on the beach previously, so we knew where to board. We were not staying in the area we were in Kona.

Very cool

4 star rating: Recommended April 2015

We really enjoyed this cruise. We didn't get to see too much due to the rainy weather. Would have been a dynamite trip on a sunny day.

4 star rating: Recommended June 2013

A great activity if you have younger children with you, we saw lots of fish and turtles.

3 star rating: Worth doing November 2013

Was a bit disappointed, there wasn't many exotic fish as we thought. The individuals doing the tour were great
