We were able to book last minute. We learned the day before that the kayak and snorkeling portion of the trip was cancelled due to large swells and low visibility. They refunded a portion of our trip and took us on a longer hike to more waterfalls. We weren't disappointed and it turned out to be one of our favourite days in Hawaii. Tim was an excellent guide. Highly recommend.

Captain Patrick and his crew were very friendly and informative. They made sure everyone had a great time. The tour included breakfast and lunch and a variety of drinks. The tour was definitely money well spent. The entire crew was amazing and so helpful! We had such a great time, thank you for making our experience to fun!

My kids and I really enjoyed this trip. The boat ride to Molokini was an hour long but it was relaxing and we enjoyed the beautiful views. The staff were all very nice and helpful. I would recommend this trip.

Al, our tour guide, was very knowledgeable and a great energy to be around. Highly recommended as watching the sunrise from a volcano top was definitely an unforgettable experience!

All the crew were friendly and they have more then just snorkels - slide-platform to jump from. I would use this company for sure in the future
