    My husband and I are on our honeymoon and booked this tour for our second day in Hawaii. This tour allowed us the opportunity to see a large variety of “must sees” in one day. Awana, our tour guide, was extremely friendly, personable, entertaining, and full of knowledge. This tour (including Awana) was above and beyond our expectations. Definitely recommend. Long day, but worth it.

    One of the best things that you might ever do in your life! Can't recommend it more. The staff was great and very funny and helpful to any concerns. Was a truly surreal experience and hope that more will be done to protect these beautiful animals.

    This was my favorite tour of our trip. You go in two vans. The one that picks you up and the one that is equipped to go up to the summit. It is very cold at the summit, and the gloves and coats were warm and good quality. Use the facilities at the stop where you acclimate to the altitude. Ride to the summit is slow and bumpy which is to be expected from a totally dirt road. Personally I enjoyed that part. The star viewing was excellent. Our guide set up the telescope to see the rings of Saturn and the moons of Jupiter. One of the other guides did a talk with a laser pointer. It was a perfectly clear night and there were so many stars and quite a few shooting stars. I was able to get a shot of the Milky Way with my camera which of course does not do it justice.

    This is a must do even if you aren't into astronomy.

    We saw a large pod of dolphins and several pods of whales! The crew was excellent. Very entertaining and helpful. Snorkeling was very good too. Totally recommend this tour

    We had to leave early due to lightning but they gave us a credit to come back anytime. The crew was very nice and knowledgeable as to where the whales would be. We were able to see a few whales but due to people standing up front our view was obstructed. The crew had asked people up front to sit in their seats so people in the back could see but they didn’t enforce it so people ignored them.

    The whole trip was well organised, maximising time in the water and minimising travel time.

    Staff were all great, with clear instructions. Always felt safe. But helps to have some water confidence, so that you can relax and enjoy the real show, the manta rays.

    We saw 5 or 6 and they barrelled very close to us, which was a surreal experience.

    You are in the water for 20 minutes or so. I was so immersed in the experience that time didn’t matter. And then you get out of the water just as you are getting cold.

    The equipment was all excellent. My mask fitted perfectly, no leaks which meant I could just focus on the experience. And all of us had wetsuits that fitted well.

    None of my fears, getting too cold and feeling sick, eventuated.

    And hot drinks and yummy snacks at the end. Thanks Jimmy!

    Highly recommend this excursion.

    We had a great afternoon with the Hang Loose crew watching whales. The crew was friendly, relaxed and knowledgeable about whales and other marine life as well as the area. Saw quite a few whales and dolphins as well. They provided snacks and drinks which was unexpected. Highly recommend.

    Captain Allen and our guides did a fantastic job. I'm a scuba diver who has done many night dives, so jumping in the water at night was no big deal. My wife however was very nervous. Once in the water, she relaxed after seeing how easy it was to just hang onto the floating board and observe the beautiful mantas. Our guide Honi was very informative, giving us great facts about the Manta's. We were fortunate to see 10-12 Mantas, along with many fish. I highly recommend Dolphin Discoveries for your manta snorkel.

    The sights were spectacular and the walks off the beaten path were a plus. Our guide, Chadwic, was exceptionally knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating, good-natured and professional. We appreciated all the instructions and attention to safety. We’ve done many tours on all the Hawaiian islands over the years and this was a highlight.

    Not much I can add to the stellar reviews these folks have already accumulated. Beautiful sail down the south west coast of the big island. Maybe the best snorkeling we have ever had in the bay that we anchored at and some fascinating history about Captain Cook, the monument and the surrounding area. Go for it!!

    This was an excellent tour of the big island. About 2 years ago, my wife and I toured the whole island by ourselves on our last vacation trip to Hawaii. There was quite a bit of information from our tour guide which we didn't know from our trip around the island ourselves. Thia was a fantastic tour guide. She also had a list of good places to eat. We saw lots of natural transition in landscape. I suggest Thia, if they give you a choice.

    One word for this tour and guide Todd Wilkinson- Awesome! Todd is so knowledgeable about astronomy you will learn and see so much. He brought his own telescope equipment to view the sky and volcano making for a truly once in a lifetime experience. The highlight of our trip to Hawaii. Highly recommend.

    My 14 year old son and I went on this trip and had a great time. Our drive and dive team were friendly and knowledgeable about both the region, the water and snorkeling. We were there in January and had the opportunity to see a small pod of dolphins and we had 4 different whale sightings. The snorkeling is really great, with many different kinds of fish to see. The equipment is good quality (better than our resort rentals).

    There is a mention, after you sign up, that there is a 250lb weight limit. The driver explained that the weight has to be equally balanced on both sides of the boat for optimal speed. If you were close to that weight I would call ahead, because it could be uncomfortable to be singled out as particularly heavy if they have to keep rebalancing the weight on board. Just something to know.

    I recommend this trip for anyone who loves to go fast!

    Shoyo was a great guide. He gave us a lot of information about the island on the way up. He took a lot of photos and dropped them to us before the end of the tour. Stargazing was great, especially with the super laser pointer to guide the viewing. It was awesome to see the mountain and surrounding skies in the daylight, at sunset and at night.
