Great crew, great boat, great experience
Bernard_M

The crew was exceptional and made the experience very memorable. We snorkeled at two locations, we saw lots of fish and did some sailing. They even prolonged the trip when a whale shark was sighted. Crew jumped in and was able to swim with the whale shark. It was amazing to watch.

My husband and I are here for the first time on the big island. We highly recommend this excursion. The sailing and snorkeling was excellent. The most memorable was snorkeling at Captain Cook. The captain and staff were very professional and put safety first.

Outstanding is an understatement.

In my 71 years I've experienced many trips and excursions, as a child with my parents, as a parent with my children, grand-children and great-grand-children. I have never taken a pleasure excursion that equaled this one. The crew were 'first cabin' from the start and throughout the entire day. The knowledge they shared about the island and the environment was highly informative and entertaining as well, and was presented more like a visit with old friends. The crew went out of their way to make sure everyone felt like they were a special guest. In fact, my 11 year old great grand son told me as we were leaving that he wants to be a tour boat captain when he grows up. This was a "do not miss" item for anyone visiting the Big Island. Many thanks to the Captain and Crew.

Aloha William, We truly appreciate you sharing your heart warming experience. We are so ecstatic to hear of your feedback and will relay this to our hardworking Captains and Crew members. We can only hope to have the pleasure of your family continuing to visit for many generations to come. We hope to see you soon! Until then, A Hui Hou & Safe Travels!

Great experience for my 6 year old all the way up to my mom who is 78! Safety briefing was thorough and all the plans were well communicated. We snorkeled at 2 spots and during both snorkels you could look up and see the crew in the water and felt completely safe. Couldn’t thank them enough for helping my family make great memories!

We had a large family group with 2 kids who had never snorkeled and this was the perfect trip for all. Love the catamaran, the crew is very knowledgeable about Hawaiian culture and history and love to share! The food is good and plentiful. This was our second trip with the Sea Paradise and would highly recommend to any wanting a wonderful snorkeling and boating experience on the big island.

We were stunned at how blue and clear and warm the waters are around Hawaii. We enjoyed the view of the island from out at sea and were fortunate to have perfect weather for this excursion. The boat is new and beautiful and the captain and crew were the epitome of friendly and fun. We can’t say enough about what a great time we had.
