We had a great time learning a little bit about the history of the area in the way to snorkel. Those was my children’s first experience and with the help of the SeaParadise crew, my son faced his fear. The crew was experienced and knowledgeable! Parking can be a bit difficult so if you have trouble call the local number listed for the tour.

First time visiting Hawaii and I’m glad we booked this tour. My family and I had so much fun, it was such an amazing experience, and we enjoyed it so much that we booked for a second time. We are looking forward to snorkeling again before leaving Kona☹️ . Tour crew /instructors were friendly and attentive. FYI: please be nice and tip the crew members
