This was so disappointing, to our family. First off the boat is not even close to what is pictured. It was a old beat up boat that was so overcrowded and little. We did not even get to sit together as a family. The crew was rude and unprofessional. The girl taking the pictures was pretty good. But the rest could have cared less. We have done many of these trips, and thought we would get our moneys worth by paying a little more not the case. So unhappy.
This adventure was everything we expected and more! The crew was very friendly and entertaining. We even got to see some dolphins while we were in the water which is what my daughter wanted most of all. I highly recommend this to anyone looking for a relaxing event while visiting Honolulu Hawaii.
After bus trip, take boat ride into a bay you can still see the shore. Crew is interested in helping people see Dolphins. Dolphins are in the bay and will swim by but do not always cooperate they zig and zag, so sometimes the folks in the front get a great view and sometimes those in the back get a great view. Be sure to take sea sickness pills because the boat will gently rock. If the weather is nice, they have other activities to enjoy besides snorkleing e.g., kayaks, paddle boards, slide, trampoline. Was not a lot to see on the bay bottom. If you are just there to snorkel, other options are less expensive.
The crew were incredibly attentive and helpful. You can tell that they really enjoy their jobs and they are genuinely nice people who are fun to be around. The snorkel gear was excellent and probably the highest quality that we have ever used on a snorkel tour and we were able to see dolphins and a sea turtle in the wild! Highly recommend booking with this group and we had an experience of a lifetime thanks to them!
Our tour was the first of the day. Our reward for getting up sooo early was swimming with half a dozen dolphins! And we were lucky enough to spot a sea turtle as well. This adventure was definitely the high-point of the trip.
Perfect weather. Hamburger was okay. Saw a dolphin for about 1.5 seconds. Did not see any turtles. The reef is about 30 feet below you. Unless you are dead set on the chance that you might see a dolphin, there are better snorkeling tours out there.
