Full description
Relax with a trip in which you are guaranteed to see dolphins, turtles, or whales (when in-season December-April). If not, you can come back for free on same or lesser-value trips.

Hop aboard this terrific snorkel power catamaran, with ample seating and shade. Enjoy the coastal sights and a refreshing swim and snorkel. Snorkel gear and in-water assistance from expert crew are included. A picnic lunch, soda, juice, and water will be served.

Hawaii is known as one of the best places in the world to go whale watching, (when in-season December-April) as the humpback whales migrate from Alaska to the warm waters surrounding the Hawaiian Islands to give birth. Learn about the whales' unique behavior and why their long journey is so important as you watch them fluke, spy hop, spout, and breach out of the water. You should wear your swimsuit and bring a light jacket, sunscreen, towel, and camera.

First trip was a waste of a beautiful vacation day

First trip, the water was too choppy to snorkel or see aquatic life. The aluminum boat was sparse & depressing. Lunch was a soda & plastic wrapped sandwich. The 2 women crew was pleasant but as far as delivering a festive event - they phoned it in. 1 woman drove while the other spent the time texting. She could have at least looked for dolphins. I feel bad bashing this trip but frankly others should be warned about wasting their vacation day & money for such a drab disappointment. The driver did remind us of their guarantee - if you don't snorkel or see dolphins you get a free "do over". Next day we cancelled our plans & tried the do over trip. Immense difference. The large sailboat/catamaran was beautiful & comfortable. The 4 person crew was lively, friendly, fun, informative & attentative. Lunch was an attractive arrangement of coldcuts, breads, cheeses, fruits, snacks, soda, juice & mixed drinks. Enjoyable music played while we mingled. The snorkelling and dolphins were great.
