This was an excellent tour. There were just 12 of us and we gelled really well together. Our tour guides Colin and Jen were very informative and Colin did a terrific job of making the adventure fun for everyone. I highly recommend it whether your young or 60+ you'll have a great time!

Buda is the reason this tour received a 5 star rating. He was extremely helpful in making this a very enjoyable event. This was my second attempt to snorkel; the first one (Atlantic waters) didn't go well. Buda took the time to give me tips and to make sure that I was at ease in the water. Many thanks to him!!!!!

Captain Collin and Caleb were awesome. They told us lots of great facts about the island. They let us snorkel a little longer than normal due to us being the last trip of the day. They showed us lava tubes and lots of fish. We got lucky on our trip going both ways. We got to watch as Spinner Dolphins swam VERY close to our boat and rode our wakes. They followed us for a good mile or so as we got to watch them play and swim. Would Recommend this trip to anyone looking for a great time!

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....

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 $.
