Great crew, great price, best snorkeling spot on the island and possibly in Hawaii. (Captain cook tour). Potential improvement: sell some sandwiches onboard, got super hungry after the water. :)

Wow, we had a wonderful time! The boat and crew were fantastic and so nice. The snorkeling was incredible and we had a beautiful day with calm waters. It really was one of my favorite activities I have ever done. I couldn't recommend this more.

Highlight of our trip

It was the highlight of our trip to the Big Island. Boat crew was awesome. Kealakekua Bay is just a beautiful place to snorkel. We saw dolphins and a whale while sailing. We had about 40 minutes to snorkel. I wish we had a little longer. Or maybe I was messing around with my phone (in a water-proof pouch) too much trying to take pictures and I wasted my snorkel time. :-) Very fun.

We had amazing time there! The catamaran was magnificent and the crew members were friendly. We got to spot some humpback whales on the way to the Bay, in which had so many colorfil fish. Highly recommended!!

We had a great time. It's a smaller boat so not a large group of people. The crew were amazing. Took the time to follow some spinner dolphins which made the whole boat happy. Best excursion experience.

We went to the wrong dock. It is at a smaller location outside of town. Would appreciate clear instructions. Other tours we took had very clear directions.

I can see why this is a top 10 snorkeling experience! Absolutely beautiful reef teeming with life and breathtaking views of the ocean and shore alike. The on-board crew were patient, kind and super chill. The snacks and drinks were great and the trimaran is the most comfortable way to get to the bay. Our lifeguards encouraged nervous members of our party and ensured they safely got to experience the sights! Highly recommended!
