Awesome adventure
, Aug 2021
If you want an adventure with a small group, 6 or less, then this is your outing. We swam with dolphins and manta rays. It’s was great and will definitely do again.
Great way to start our trip!

Cam and Morray were excellent hosts, and knowledgeable and had a good opinion of ecology and sensitivity to the animals we were observing.
The Best

The greatest tour I have ever gone on. I loved that it is a very small group and the guides are very friendly, knowledgeable and attentive. We saw some great wildlife, this is a must visit tour!!
Highly recommend

The best part of this excursion? It was small and personable. We had three in our party and two others that joined on our boat The crew was amazing. Knowledgeable and super helpful. We swam in the same waters as Manta Rays and a pod of dolphins as they passed by. Our group has already discussed renting out the boat and crew for some private excursions next time we are in Kona.
Absolutely Amazing!

This was INCREDIBLE! Kay and Cam were amazing guides. Very knowledgeable and excited to share what they know. They even had fresh pineapple aboard the boat for after our last jump. The most amazing thing was seeing the white tipped shark and the manta ray! Oh and jelly fish! Swam with them all. We almost missed the spinner dolphins but Kay spotted them as we were heading back to the harbor and we got to see them lazily come up for air a couple times! 10 out of 10! Would HIGHLY recommend!

Best small and semi private adventure on the island
, Dec 2020
We had an absolutely wonderful experience on Kay and Cam's boat! They were very experienced and knowledgeable. We saw a Manta Ray while snorkeling. We also saw a baby humpback whale breach and bottlenose dolphins come right up to the boat. We highly recommend this adventure to others!
