This is a MUST water activity!!
Toni_K

This was by far the one of the BEST excursions we had on the Big Island. The catamaran was spotless. It was spacious with two bathrooms! The food was hand prepared and the drinks were hand mixed. YUM! But the snorkel spots were the BEST! I saw so many kinds of fish, ells and coral! I wanted to go again, but our schedule didn't allow it. This is a MUST water activity!

Captain Tony, Ellie and the rest of the crew were amazing! Saw many colorful fish, no dolphins/turtles/whales but was still worth it. Would go again!

Great crew, awesome experience. Plenty of room on the catamaran for gear and viewing. Full size (clean) restrooms too. Would definitely recommend. We would have liked more time spent at Captain Cook monument to snorkel but you could spend hours there! Sailing during lunch, while watching the dolphins in the bay was amazing.

Aloha Derek, We appreciate you taking the time to review us! If we could spend all day there, we absolutely would :) Mahalo Nui Loa for joining us, we hope you'll think of us on your next stay.
