Great Way to Spend Your First Day on the Big Island

What a great time. We'd only been on the Big Island for about 24 hours when we went out so we still a little tired, but had a great time. The crew was outstanding and genuinely interested in helping everyone have a great time. We didn't need much help, but it was nice to see them take time to help others that were a little tentative. Rumor has it this is the location the Disney team visited as they prepared to create Nemo's reef. We saw many fish and an eel. We snorkeled for about 45 - 50 minutes. I could have stayed all day. What a great way to start a trip to Hawaii!!

Aloha John, We are thrilled to hear you enjoyed our crew and your time out on the water. Mahalo for thinking of us, what a great way to start your trip! It is true that studies on Kealakekua Bay were the inspiration for finding nemo :) We hope you'll think of us on your next visit to the islands.

Crew was great. Explained everything and gave interesting stories about Hawaii and its history. Very attentive and offered refreshments. Plenty of drinks and snacks. Boat was comfortable and in great condition. Snorkeling was good, but just being in the boat for tye 45 min trip in and out of harbor with my family might have been best part! Would highly recommend.

The sail was perfect- followed spinner dolphins and they were beautiful. Crew was friendly and helpful. The snorkeling site had lots of fish and a couple of sharks. The water was warm and calm.
