I saw an octopus! And the crew was friendly and professional. The breakfast is light, so don’t go totally hungry.

OK snorkeling experience but not great.
Bob_R
, Aug 2022
The trip was fun but there was very little actual sailing; mostly motoring with the main sail up. Fish life was OK at best; simply too many people in the water.
icon Response from Host , Aug 2022
Aloha Bob, Mahalo Nui Loa for taking the time to leave your feedback. We do our best to do genuine sailing given the right conditions. However, Kona is not typically known to have an over abundance of winds so we will motor sail when conditions aren't favorable. We are sorry to hear you found there were too many people in Kealakekua Bay, it has become increasingly popular over the years. We do however hope you enjoyed Red Hill where it is a little more secluded for your Morning Sail & Snorkel. We hope you enjoy the rest of your stay on Hawaii Island. A Hui Hou & Safe Travels!

If I could give this trip 10 stars I would. My family was celebrating my husbands 80th birthday. When I booked the trip I asked if they could get a birthday cake to serve after lunch. They brought a beautiful cake. We did the whole birthday deal with candles and the entire boat sang happy birthday To my husband Frank. The entire trip was exceptional. The crew were so friendly and helpful. I also appreciated the concern for our safety and the environment. Thank you so much to Alex Jessie. Kamiel Ellie and Cassidy. Absolutely the most fabulous snorkel trip.

We arrived at the pier to be welcomed by a wonderful crew and a beautiful ship. After check in they took us to a little creek for a quick snorkel before going to captain cooks. It was wonderful throughout, saw lots of fish and even dolphins jumping. The crew made sure we were safe at all times and nice. Strongly recommend

The crew was exceptional and made the experience very memorable. We snorkeled at two locations, we saw lots of fish and did some sailing. They even prolonged the trip when a whale shark was sighted. Crew jumped in and was able to swim with the whale shark. It was amazing to watch.
