Kindness and a Great Boat
Christina_H

First the boat is beautiful, it is exactly as pictured. The ride was enjoyable as there was space to move around the boat and allowed for amazing views of the coastline. The snorkeling was great and the gear provided was good. They served a light breakfast and lunch as well as having beverages available throughout the cruise. Service was amazing 🤩 what really put this over the top was the kindness of the staff. A couple of our participants were first time snorkelers and their patience and options made them feel safe and able to participate in the activity. Their kindness and assurance is rare and it made the whole experience more than 5 stars.

We had a great time on this trip. The crew and captain (Alex) were awesome. They were very professional, knowledgeable and fun. The snorkeling was fantastic, we saw lots of great wildlife. The crew watched over everyone while we swam. The food was good too. They kept things flowing seamlessly the whole time.

Lovely snorkeling and sail trip!
Amy_F

The crew all worked hard to provide a comfortable and relaxing experience while also being diligent in terms of safety awareness—there were a lot of boats and people at the Captain Cook monument. We were on the morning sail so we went to two different snorkel sites, both of which were so beautiful. We had wonderful weather and calm water so we felt extra spoiled! I want to come back and do this tour again with my husband next time. I had gone on a manta ray tour with another company the night before, and I’d probably do that again too, but with this company.

Crew were very knowledgeable and answered every question about the history and sea life during the trip. Breakfast and lunch were served efficiently and enjoyed. Lots of space for all the passengers since they reduced numbers to uphold COVID standards. Nice snorkeling and lots of dolphins. Would use this company again.

Snorkel the best parts of the big island
Victoria_N
, Apr 2022
Hopped on the beautiful Sea Paradise and we set off for our first snorkel location. The first location was actually my favorite as it was very deep and very vast, much to explore. We got about 45 mins in the water and saw a ton of Black Triggers and Yellow Tangs. My favorite was when they threw a piece of bread in the water as we were getting out and the triggers just swarmed around us. After that it was off to Captain Cook which has some pretty reefs and then a steep drop off. It was cool to see the monument and snorkel it. After that we got to hop back on the boat and got treated to lunch, an amazing story/history about Captain Cook and saw some cool geology on the way back.

Aloha Victoria, Mahalo for taking the time to leave us a review. We are delighted to hear you enjoyed your charter to Kealakekua Bay and as well as your snorkel along Red Hill. Both are truly gorgeous gems of the island to snorkel. We hope you can join us again the next time you are on island. Mahalo Nui Loa for choosing SeaParadise and A Hui Hou!

This was one of the best excursions I’ve been on! The crew, with Captain Morgan, was phenomenal. Every one did their best to make this a wonderful experience. So helpful with the gear and how to use it. Food was simple but delicious. Just the right amount of people on the boat. Once again, loved the crew! We will recommend to others and will use this company when we visit again. We love Kona!
