Great snorkeling experience. And the crew was wonderful! We did the Catamaran Snail and Snorkel tour. We went on the morning cruise because I read that time of day had less chance of big waves and better water for snorkeling. We went with our 12 and 14 year olds. We too dramamine before hand and didn't get see sick but... More

We did a snorkeling/snuba catamaran cruise through this outfit. The crew was great and very accommodating. Dan, the dive guide, led the snuba groups. Two in our group were young teenagers who had never snorkeled or done snuba before. He was great, getting them to get comfortable and to enjoy the experience thoroughly. This was one of the highlights of... More

I have to say that this was one of the highlights of our trip to Hawaii. We booked the Speedboat Dolphin snorkel Tour. Our Captain was Mark and he was excellent and hilarious! We were even able to take our own beer on board. He made sure that we were able to see and swim with the dolphins. We had... More

One of my amazing experiences ever!! I work in Waikiki as hospitality business and advise many visitors exciting tours and activities. Always see sea animals in the water when I surf, but never seen the dolphins in the water so close by. 2 & 1/2 hrs passed by quickly with excellent customer service by captain mark, Shannon, & Tomomi. They... More

Couldn't ask for a more amazing team. Firstly went to a small shipwreck to look at the reef fish (spotted a sea turtle and monk seal). Later the skipper, Austin, liaised with other boats in the area to locate pods of spinner dolphins, and we explained clearly to us how best to blend in the water to not scare the... More

What a great time I had going out on the catamaran with these guys. Crew was great despite a minor engine problem to get us going. Out on the water we saw whales & turtles. They provide drinks and lunch. Some alcohol is available for purchase. The crew works hard to make sure everyone is enjoying themselves. So in the... More

What a cool experience! The crew was very nice and knowledgable. I was a little uneasy being on and in open water, but they were great at cracking jokes and keeping nervous people (like me!) calm. We spotted two turtles on the surface, but no whales or dolphins, unfortunately. But that's not in their control. The snorkel spots were beautiful... More

We went out just a couple of days ago and were lucky enough to only be joined by another 10 people on the catamaran. The crew were incredible, really friendly and attentive. The water was choppy, so not much time for drinks (but the crew did try!) and they made sure we were all ok and not feeling sea so... More
