Bummed we didn't see any turtles or dolphins

Crew was great. Snorkel good. Boat ride fun. We did not see any turtles or dolphins and that was the reason for booking this tour. We also took 2 four year olds and they didn't really enjoy themselves- not the crews fault. 1 of them said water was too cold and the other he got water in his mask and quit. Learn and live.

Aloha Renee, Mahalo for joining us and letting us know of your feedback! It is unfortunate when we don't get to see what we are hoping for out on the water. Unfortunately, they are wild marine animals and it is out of our control. We hope you'll give us another try on your next visit and get the experience you were hoping for! Safe Travels

crew was awesome! got to snorkel TWO different spots; both were amazing! appreciated the 2nd spot more because there were less people. Would have preferred an earlier departure to beat crowds at Capt Cook Bay. The number of people there diminished the experience. Overall, this was an awesome tour, thanks to the awesome crew!

Aloha and mahalo for your review! Kealakekua Bay has definitely seen some crowds these days, so the second snorkel spot we visit is a really great way to have some alone time and space for our group! We're so thankful our captains can provide this additional experience for our guests.

Beautiful views of the island from the water! Snorkeling was great, lots of varieties of colorful fish. They provided snacks, drinks, lunch, snorkeling gear and reefsafe sunscreen. Joshua and the crew were super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We had a great day on the water.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2021
Aloha! So happy to hear you got to see plenty of colorful fish. Kealakekua Bay is truly one of the most incredible snorkel sites in the world. For this reason, it's so important we keep the reef safe from chemical sunscreens, which is why we ensure to educate our guests on and provide reef-safe mineral sunscreen! Mahalo for joining us and for your review!
