Well-organized, very friendly crew. Felt safe and crew made an effort to talk to everyone. Breakfast and lunch were simple, but really good. Drinks were plentiful. We saw whales, dolphins, and sea turtles and were able to snorkel near some fish and a turtle for a while, but the dolphins didn’t come near. Water was smooth, and this was a good length of time for people who didn’t want to be on the water the whole day. 3 hours exactly, but felt like we did a lot. About 45 minutes in the water. Can purchase a basic snorkel on board for ~$24, or bring your own.
The captain and his wife were great. The glass bottom is really 4 rectangles and you really aren't going to see too much there. He gave us great history on the cruise. Got fish to the boat, showed us Sea Turtles as well. It was also a really unique perspective of Diamond Head since we had made the trek to the top the day before. Totally different vantage point. The write up boasted seeing a ship wreck which we did not and that was actually what made us choose this over others. My daughter was truly disappointed. Not sure why we didn't see it, though.
It was a wonderful day. Jenna and Veronica were our Marine Biologists and they did a wonderful job of find dolphin (Spinners, Bottle nose and Keiki) and humback whales. They were engaging and friendly and answered questions with ease. They also took the time to drop a mic in the water to let us hear the whales and dolphins. We got to swim in deep water 2300 feet! Which was so cool. I cannot recommend this tour enough.
The guide was very informative and gave the tourists tona of interesting information along the tour ride. It did rain on my trip but they did the best they could to keep everyone in high spirits.
Amazing little boat trip! You’ll definitely see a couple sea turtles and he’ll even round back so you can get a look. His wife takes amazing pictures overall a sweet couple and an amazing tour!
