Captain Kevin and Crew member Shay were absolutely amazing. This was really an incredible trip my husband and I took. They were organized , had so much info to share, and we always felt they had the passengers best interest in mind. Passengers were a diverse group of ages and everyone enjoyed it. Even had some snacks and a lunch provided. Can’t recommend this 5 hour experience enough!

Staff was curious and knowledgeable about the landscape and animals that we observed. The food was also good and the tour length was just long enough to provide a great experience without making us too tired.

Fantastic Expedition and Snorkeling

It was an incredible experience and the crew was fantastic. They took us (two families with 4 kids) to 3 different snorkeling locations, visited many sea caves, showed us a remote black sand beach, and yes we had an awesome high-speed sailing at the end. Our Captain was very informative about the history of the island and the historical landmarks that we visited. The sandwiches were delicious too. We spotted two Sea turtles. Kids rated this expedition as the best experience they had during our 1-week vacation to Kona. Highly recommended.

We had a great trip with Steve and Liz. The snorkeling was amazing. In addition to all the beautiful fish, we saw dolphins and sea turtles. We really enjoyed Steve taking the time to show us other sites along the way and providing some historic background during the excursion. Both of our hosts were top notch. We would highly recommend this tour. Aloha from your Colorado guests!
