It was my first time ever snorkeling and being in Hawaii so this is coming from a beginner in snorkeling. I really enjoyed my experience. The marine biologists on board were incredibly knowledgeable and humble. They were all friendly and helpful. The boat ride was great too but if you're easily sea sick then be careful. I suggest you take a GoPro to record memories of yourself and others as well as record the underwater world. They offered rentals of GoPros for about $40 where you keep the SD card. I would do this again. It felt so short but it's because I was having a blast.

We had a great time! The crew was so friendly and informative. This was our first time snorkeling so they let the experienced people go first and gave us extra instructions separately. I feel like that was best for everyone. I got nauseous and they were so helpful and accommodating. The covid restrictions were annoying but reasonable.

I booked this trip with my friends and it was amazing! We got to see a few turtles and tons of fish. I was a little nervous because I had never been snorkeling before but they give you a little snorkeling 101 class if you want to take it where they tell you how to use the equipment and stuff like that. They also have about 3-4 staff members/life guards out in the water with you just in case you need them. I felt safe the whole time, the staff was very welcoming and knowledgeable about the history of the area and the marine life, and overall my friends and I had a blast!
