Traveler Tips


I highly recommend this tour to anyone with families or even just for a fun date.
My husband is not usually a snorkeling fan because he can't see the fish without his glasses, but they had corrective goggles and he was able to enjoy.

A relaxing afternoon
David_M, Dec 2022
My wife and I made a last minute decision to book the cruise. The weather was perfect, except for the lack of wind. This meant that the sail was of little value. The captain and crew were all very friendly and helpful. Snorkeling at Captain Cook Monument was OK, but I'd heard from friends it was "the best ever." Not for us... at least not on that day. The cruise back was nice. All in all it was a pleasant, relaxing afternoon.
Response from Host, Dec 2022
Aloha David, Mahalo Nui Loa for taking your time to leave us a great review. We from Sea Paradise are honored for choosing us to be a part of your sea adventure. We highly appreciate you for recognizing our friendly and accommodating crew. We hope to welcome you again onboard! A Hui Hou!

Great adventure
Robert_H, Nov 2022
From start to finish the afternoon was amazing. Best snorkeling I have ever done. Capt Morgan(yes that is his name) and crew Asia and Roe were over the top with making everyone feel comfortable and safe. They even got my wife into the water which she was timid about doing so. She had a great time. Snacks were great and the cocktails after snorkeling were also wonderful. They should not change anything they are doing. A prime example of outstanding customer service. They more than fulfilled the price of the afternoon sail. Thanks Capt Morgan and Crew

I am not particularly comfortable in water and had never done snorkelling before. However, Eden and Logan were both really helpful and did their very best to reassure me. I am very grateful to both of them.
