Lovely day. Great staff, our bus driver had some time up his sleeve so took us to a local cave that isn't listed in the itinerary. Great drinks, even though the snorkling area was empty of fish, the sail and dolphins were breathaking.
Well organized, friendly crew. About twenty of us on a large catamaran, didnt feel crowded. We saw a couple of turtles, a couple of pods of dolphins and lots of fish. Had a great time, and would definitely go thru Hawaii Nautical again for this or one of their other tours. The ONLY thing that they could have done better but again, we had a great time and this would be if I was really trying to come up with one bit of constructive feedback was remember that for those new to snorkeling, especially with small children, a little more time on the front end explaining putting on the mask or making sure the kids get fitted right would prevent any hold ups when getting folks into the water. Highly recommend!
This is by far one of the greatest experiences of the trip. Aside from the abundant natural beauty, I was so impressed by the attentiveness of the crew. There were staff in the water watching swimmers and I noted as well the deck hands carefully watching the snorkelers. I felt very safe. Oh! Did I mention the crew also helped snorkelers with underwater photography. I would recommend this trip and plan to return when I am back on Oahu.
The Leeward Coast Dolphin and Snorkel Half-Day Cruise was well worth it. The crew was very nice.
We had an opportunity to watch a pod of dolphins sleeping in the bay before the boat headed out for snorkeling. The snorkeling was done in a very clear area where one can see the bottom of the bay and see the fish and turtles. The crew goes in with you and makes sure everyone sticks together. They act as lifeguards while you are in the water.
Being picked up from the hotel and taken to the boat was a huge convenience.
great tour. we saw so many dolphins cruised along. unfortunately. the tour is only for dolphin watching not actually swim with them. the boat the very comfortable and crew members are amazing.
This was honestly one of the best things I've ever done. Totally amazing, beautiful trip, amazing crew. Worth every penny. Don't miss out!
Great experience - very friendly crew, lovely boat, delicious lunch and the snorkeling and dolphin watching was fantastic! We loved sailing back into the harbour after our cruise too :
Excellent Crew and very helpful! It was a fun and safe trip for the whole family!
super nice crew very relaxed atmosphere nice boat, good vitals just an awesome half day-
The dolphins were incredible there were so many. The snorkling was great!
The crew was exceptionally nice and knowledgeable. They gave great information about the dolphin, and had good integrity about not putting us in the water next to them. The snorkeling was marvelous, but only wish was that there had been more of it.
Wonderful, knowledgable, and humorous gentlemen tour guides. Got us within a safe but respectable distance to see the pods of dolphins and sea turtles. Then we snorkeled the beautiful blue ocean, even getting close enough to see an octopus hanging out below. Coffee, muffins and fruit was served in the morning, and a lovely spread of pasta salads and sandwiches were offered in the afternoon. Drinks were available for purchase, but the guides took care of us to make sure we had a fantastic time! This is a great excursion! Would absolutely do it again!
Well looked after, captain and crew were great, food catered for all tastes. The snorkeling was simply awesome!
The trip was in a word - awesome. Captain Anthony, Megan, Kelly and Rodney made the voyage a highlight of our trip to Hawaii. We will be bringing our own snorkeling gear and going again with you this year. The crew took care of our every need, from picking us up, getting us fed, getting us some time viewing whales and dolphins, and making sure everyone got some time swimming with turtles. Kudos to everyone!
We had beautiful weather, a very knowledgeable and entertaining crew, saw dolphins and a green sea turtle. Couldn't ask for anything more!
Tour guides were fantastic, they knew so much and very informative.
Had an amazing time and it was so relaxing!!
This trip was so fun! The crew was laid back and informative. We saw dolphins, turtles, fish of all kinds. The food was great and the rum drinks with nutmeg were to die for!!!
Brilliant half day trip the boat, crew and lunch were excellent. Saw small pods of dolphins and swam with a large variety of fish and a couple of turtles. Would definitely use this boat company again for future trips in Hawaii.
We loved this tour! The staff was professional and fun. We never snorkeled before this trip. The staff was very helpful in giving instructions and making you feel safe. Great time!!
Everything about this tour was fantastic, from the pick up in Waikiki to the onboard service of all the staff. They were more that happened to share their knowledge and experience of the wildlife throughout the trip. Food was amazing, staff were fun and scenery spectacular.
Had an amazing trip. Was able to see whales, dolphins, etc. The crew was fantastic and honestly I can't imagine a better thing to do than this. Awesome time. Thanks guys and gals!!
Captain (Mosh) and crew members were fabulous. Water was choppy and no dolphins or whales seen on this trip so was invited back (comp ticket) for another try on Friday, January 2nd. Even bigger wells but wildlife galore, including sea turtles, breaching whales and spinner dolphins. The rainbow over the harbor was an added bonus. As a former Safety and Risk Manager, I really appreciated the focus on safety both for the passengers and wildlife. This was the highlight of my 2 week stay on Oahu. Thank you!
I had a great time! the crew was so helpful, and patient! The only thing I was sad about, was that the dolphins swam off before I got into the water! Was a wonderful trip, would do it again!!!
