This tour was amazing!
We loved this tour! We have snorkeled a lot in Hawaii and this was the BEST snorkeling we have ever experienced! Jamal was very knowledgeable about Big Island history and was very encouraging and patient with us novice kayakers. This tour has been the highlight of our trip!
Great staff, very friendly, easy going and knowledgeable. We did the morning tour. Bay was beautiful and calm. Snorkeling sight was awesome until 5 other tour groups showed up. Our half day was up by the time it got really crowded.
This was the first thing we did when we arrived in Hawaii last week. Our captain was professional, knowledgeable about the area and he was fun to be with. His assistant was also a blast to be around. Our trip started out quickly with a couple of stops to be among dolphins who were returning from feeding all night. We attempted to find some whales but nature being fickle didn't produce any for us to see. We then proceeded to a very nice quiet area to do some snorkeling. The water was crystal clear and protected from the wind and waves further out.
Riding on the boat is fun especially out in the open ocean. Lots of bumps and bounces. Our captain was nice enough to stop several times to let everyone take a break and to release their death grip on the safety handles. :
Just a word to the wise, if you have back or neck troubles I don't recommend this mostly due to the bumps and how the boat is unforgiving on passing that feeling onto the passengers. I do, however, recommend this to anyone who can get down there and experience this adventure. It was a blast and even though I have already done it once, I will do it again during the next visit.
Doing what: Zodiac Raft and Snorkel Adventure
This was a great experience. Our guide, Jamal, shared so much information on the history of the land, and on the marine life during our snorkeling. He also established a great comfortable environment for all of us.
Very good, but some things were not as anticipated. Chris was great, snorkeling was great! I thought caves were played up too much...not really caves imo. I pictured going inside them. It is really just a cliff side. Food should be more than chips and fruit. Add something like a half sandwich per person. Good trip in general, but don't sell it as caves...

We absolutely loved this tour. Kayaking was fun, snorkeling was great and Jamal is the very best guide. Highly recommend!!
Wonderful experience!! Kealakekua Bay and Honaunau Bay were excellent snorkel locations. We saw a wide array of fish, sea turtles, and dolphins during our tour. Captain Dave and Kevin were fantastic! Very engaging, informative, and we had a blast!!
A wonderful evening with music, history, beautiful scenery and good food. The staff was very courteous and did a great job! Would highly recommend!
Such a fun time!! Iwa and Jamal were awesome! We were inexperienced kayakers and snorkelers and they walked us through step by step! We got to see spinner dolphins and the fish while snorkeling were just amazing!!! Loved hearing the history too! Just a great tour all around!! Would highly recommend this tour to EVERYONE!!!
Definitely worth going
This was a very pleasant cruse. The live music was peaceful and pleasant and the narration of the sites was interesting and enjoyable. There was a nice variety of very tasty food on the dinner buffet and the bar was well stocked with reasonable prices for such a venue. We had an enjoyable visit with other guest on the cruse and the atmosphere was conducive to friendly conversation.
What a great time my wife and I had. Service was great very friendly and helpful. Music that was provided was outstanding. There was a person telling the history of Hawaii as we moved along the coast. Very informative: gave us other places to check out. Just an outstanding evening.
Highly recommend this tour that I took on 16th June. The guides Bill and Michael were very easy going and humourous and told us a lot about the surrounding area. Despite me not heeding their instructions on where to snorkel and ending up being washed up on the sharp coral rocks they were still able to come to my aid and help me get my wounds and scratches dressed. I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and the highlight was seeing the spinner dolphins in the bay doing their stuff spinning in the air. Don't forget to take your sunscreen though.
It was an amazing experience. Tour was organized very nicely. Tour guide Jamhal was caring, helpful and awesome. Other staff was also good. We were lucky to see dolphins that day. ocean kayaking..must do thing..!!
Loved it. The tour guide was funny, respectful, fun and excellent!
Beautiful scenery and beautiful sunset. We loved the musician on board! The movement of the boat made it difficult to walk. But we saw a couple groups of dolphins which made it all worth while. Dinner was good too.
We had a very good time on this trip. We were a little worried when we pulled up to the store and nobody was there, but the tour guide showed up shortly after we did. We were the only other kayak on this trip so it felt like a private tour and our guide was very knowledgeable and gave us great information.
Very pleasant trip, wonderful live music, great food, attentive staff. A very nice time and a different perspective on the island from the water.
We took the evening cruise and it was spectacular. The sunset magnificent and we even had dolphins jumping on que as we prepared to return to the harbor.The crew on this trip were outstanding. The historian is a native Hawaiian woman who is a wonderful story teller. She has humor and knowledge, a rare mix. The food was very good and the entire evening was lovely. The staff couldn't do enough to assist the passengers. First rate and a must if you do nothing else.
Had an absolute ball on this tour. Our guide JC and Kevin were phenomenal. First time snorkeling and loved every moment of it and the tour or the caves and boat ride were wonderful.
