Awesome snorkel experience

My husband and I were a bit apprehensive at first knowing it was a speed boat, but that definitely added it to the experience The captain of the boat was very professional and had lots of history to speak of along the journey.

An awesome in the Pacific

Jimmy and Landon were great hosts. They pointed out areas of interest and explained what we were seeing. And they saved the best for last - snorkeling in the bay! The water was crystal clear and it was awesome to see fish I had only seen in aquariums and in pictures. I have snorkeled all over the Caribbean so I have seen many types of fish for the Atlantic Ocean. This was my first opportunity to snorkel in the Pacific. I even went to Hapuna Beach the next day to snorkel. But the reefs were quite a swim offshore and not for weak swimmers!

Your Industry banks upon theta t that we must return home and want to just forget this ripoff!

Your whole industry is a scam and a ripoff! You enticed me to sign up while l was still in San Antonio up, Texas, but then nobody knew where to go or who to contact and your agents (they are all scam artists) just said it was all somebody else who would perform the promised trip somewhere but where we were and at some time other than when we were there. I am going to do my darn best to tell every other state that the Big Island Tourist Industry is a farce and a fraud!!!!

Boat ride and snorkeling.

Speed boat was not bad. Very knowledgeable about caves but did not get to explore. Snorkel area was nice but not as much variety of fish and no turtles. We did get to see dolphins! Still enjoyed the day.

Just do it.

The experience was amazing! While I felt I could have spent double the time on snorkeling alone I understand why it was short, but everything about this trip was worth it. The snorkeling spot was a dream, the captain was funny and easy to communicate with, the boat ride on the choppy ocean was a blast of a journey in itself! Overall, I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

Good time. A lot of sun, so make sure you bring cover up or sun screen. Reef is beautiful and you get to see a lot of fish.

So many fish to see!!!

TONS OF FISH! We saw a plethora of fish on this trip! More than we have seen on other Snorkling trips! The boat ride is about 25 min each way and is fast and fun. We saw dolphins and info about the lava formations along the way. Snacks were fresh pineapple , which was delicious, but would have liked to have known ahead of time as daughter is allergic. Bring other snacks if needed. They have a “dry” space on board for towels and personal belongings. Make sure to take a hat that can tie on as it is VERY windy on the boat. Would highly recommend!

Wonderful experience! loved the whole afternoon, from the Zodiac boat ride to the stops along the way to learn about some history along the way. And the snorkeling was just amazing!!! Crew was knowledgeable, helpful and professional while still making sure we had lots of fun. Would definitely recommend and will be back for different adventures ourselves.
