The sail was absolutely gorgeous. We saw dolphins swimming with the boat right in front of us on the way to the monument! I got to see fish swimming right underneath me and saw the reef up close when I was snorkeling. It was definitely an experience never to forget!

Aloha Particia and mahalo for taking the time to leave a review. We are so happy you enjoyed your afternoon trip to Kealakekua Bay! How exciting that got to see the Humpback whales that visit us this time of year with their young. Maybe next time you can join us to see the Manta Rays at night. Mahalo Nui Loa and a Hui Hou!

My kids rated this “Best Day Ever”!

This was easily one of the highlights of our Big Island vacation. This tour is phenomenal and the crew is very enthusiastic, hardworking and fun! The snorkeling experience was so easy, my 5 and 8 years olds enjoyed it immensely. But what they loved even more was catching the waves and being splashed on the way back while sitting on the nets upfront the catamaran. And of course, seeing the whales playing in the water was a great bonus! We will be back!

Aloha Anna, Thanks for taking the time to review us. We are so happy to hear the whole family enjoyed their time out on the water. It's truly amazing when we get to cross paths with different marine animals. Mahalo Nui Loa for joining us, we hope to see you and your family soon for more adventures!

The crew was very helpful and had a lot to say about the monument. The different kinds of fish. Saw a manta ray on our way back, but wish we saw some dolphins too. The only complaint was the snorkeling was pretty quick.
icon Response from Host , Dec 2021
Aloha Marian, Thank you for taking sometime to leave a great review. Our crew are very informative when it comes to marine life and history of the big island. Great to hear that you were able to see manta ray and dolphins. We would love to welcome you again and experience the Deluxe Morning sail and snorkel with a two spots for snorkel and with a longer hours of sailing on your next sea adventure. Mahalo!
