Winner of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for 6 years in a row. Aloha & welcome. If you want an amazing ocean adventure like no other offered in Hawaii, come see us! Only we can offer you the comfort and speed of the Ocean Warrior--an 11-meter Navy assault vessel designed for and used by the Navy S.E.A.L. Teams and Special Warfare Operations. With this amazing vessel we have a further range than our competition and can get you there fast and comfortably. And did we mention that our captains are world-class freedivers and underwater photographers with over 20 years of ocean experience? Take a look around the website to see what we offer and feel free to either book online or give us a call to reserve your seat! Mahalo!

You get a little bit of everything on this trip! They take you out on a Navy SEAL pontoon, which is more like a roller coaster than a pleasure cruise -- they can (and do) turn on a dime, giving you a few bonus thrills...More

Great boat and crew. We spent the morning snorkelling with pilot whales and had an awesome time. The crew are very knowledgable and very experienced at how to interact with the pilot whales.

Aloha. If you are talking about the Humpback Whales then I would say a possible chance although it is little early in the season. We though look for other Whales that are residents in Kona waters. Thank you

Hi Korri You could bring a light jacket. But many just wear shorts and T- shirt. Some wear long sleeve as a protection from the sun. Wear shoes that might get wet. Thank you WHOA

Yes you pee while you're snorkeling. We can always stop the boat and you can go to the back of boat and hold on to the ladder as well while you're in the water.
