Rude Captain
Vicky_C
, Jun 2022
The excursion was a blast and the crew was amazing except for the older man ( I believe he was the captain) who was very rude to my daughter and grandson. My grandson came back from snorkeling to eat so returned the snorkel gear to someone on the deck. When he was ready to go back, my daughter went to get another one for him. And the old man (not going to call him a gentleman because he was not) asked “where’s the other one, are you going to steal it?” My daughter did not say anything because she thought he was joking. And I thought we all had to rinse when we come back because that is what hey said in the beginning, so I asked where do we rinsed. He took the hose and sprayed my face and said this is not a hotel. Water is rare so we have to conserve. I paid a lot of money for 7 people to go in this trip because of the reviews. But for someone to treat me and my family like that is very bad business. His comments are not jokes. I am a professional and I work in the medical field and I don’t ever treat my customers the way he did. I will not recommend this trip because Of him. The other crew member were awesome except for him.

Amazing!

This was a very fun morning trip! The crew is very cohesive and they have a great system for getting you your snorkel equipment and your food fast. They also were there to help toss out extra inner tubes or whatever you needed while you’re in the water. The slides were fun! The water was refreshing and so blue. The food was vegetarian and delicious! The best part is that they didn’t overload this boat, so you don’t have to worry about not having your own space to sit with your family. We were able to leave all of our stuff in the same spot for the duration of the trip and nobody bothered it.

I saw a parrot fish nibbling on the reef! On the return the captain spotted some tiger sharks hunting and diverted slightly so we could see them. Glad I was watching from the boat!

I was a little worried since i only booked for my daughters and I for Mother’s Day, having little ones can be a bit difficult especially being a single parent. But we had the most memorable experience of a lifetime. They were AMAZING with my daughters and I! The employees would help them, play with them and even watched over us while swimming. I am beyond happy and felt completely safe during our trip!

I’ve been on many snorkeling excursions in Maui, Jamaica, Mexico...but this was the icing on the cake! The crew...top notch! Friendly & professional! The boat..clean, fun..smooth! We were on a morning trip & fed a delicious breakfast & lunch with an afternoon desert. The snorkeling was breathtaking. No matter what age or swimming ability..they offered a variety of equipment for your enjoyment. Slides & jumping platforms as well. To see the island & it’s beautiful coast line was dreamy. We will do this again & again. Perfect day! ❤️🌺

Morning Snorkeling on the big island
Christopher_S

The reef was beautiful and in great shape. Fish were abundant and even though it seemed crowded at first all of that faded away as soon as you put your face in the water. The boat ride to and from the reef was pleasant and the crew shared some local lore that was entertaining along the way.

Great sail with a great crew

The crew is fantastic, the sights are beautiful and they give you some history along the way. If you haven't been snorkeling they give you lots of helpful tips and have lots of flotation de ices if you aren't a strong swimmer. The food is just ok. So the crew gets 5 stars, the food is a 3, hence my 4 star review.

We went snorkeling in a beautiful cove with lots of fish. They are fully equipped with masks, snorkels, fins, flotation devices and ways to see the fish without even getting your face in the water.

Overall this was a remarkable trip! The crew was very friendly, captain was informative and funny, and the snorkel spot can’t be beat! We did choose to do the optional (up charge) SNUBA, and it was worth it!!! Although there was plenty to see just with snorkeling as well. Meals were good and we even got to see flying fish!! Go, you won’t regret this one!!!!

Great first time experience. Very professional, enjoyed the couple of stops to see some historical sites and the crew did a great job educating about the sea life and safety. Lots of help with equipment and a crew member was assigned to each side of the ship as lifeguards. Money well spent!
