We had the best time with Indigo ocean group! They were so knowledgeable about the ocean, nature, Hawaii, and wildlife. We felt safe and it was a beautiful experience! We saw dolphins, turtles, and an octopus! We recommend taking sea sickness medicine even if you have never been sea sick before! Other than that it was absolutely a must do for Hawaii :)

We had such an amazing time with Indigo Ocean Hawaii!! All the crew members were so awesome and made the trip so fun, comfortable, and made us feel safe and taken care of! We got in to see dolphins several different times, swam with sea turtles and manta rays right next to us, and even got the rare chance to see a huge pod of pilot whales! My little kids had a blast and were able to see all the animals they were hoping to! It was truly a once in a lifetime experience that our family will never forget! Thanks to the crew for the best time, thanks Michael for making everything so exciting and for all the amazing pictures! If you’re thinking about booking this, do it!! You will not regret it!

We were on the boat with about 20 other guests and spent a brilliant morning. The entire crew was super nice and created an incredible atmosphere (good vibes only). On the trip we snorkeled with a large group of pilot whales and 2 giant turtles. One of the guides, Michael, took around 1200 pictures/videos of the guests and the animals throughout the trip and then offered the package for sale at a fair price (Dropbox).
