We had such luck! We saw a mother, baby and escort whales, pods of dolphins, and a manta ray from the boat. We also pulled a Mylar balloon from the ocean saving sea turtle in the process. The balloon had baby octopuses on it which we returned to the ocean. This is all not even counting the amazing variety of fish we saw. While our experience was not typical, what seemed to be was the excellent customer service, knowledgeable crew and fantastic experience.

Crew was Great! Food was good but I’m picky so others probably loved it. It was partially cloudy but the sunset turned out to be beautiful and the clouds caused a rainbow to appear on shore. The only downside was there were no Dolphins or other sea creatures to be seen. If you have any doubts about motion sickness please premedicate. Other than that it was a good time.

Hawaiian Cultural Practitioner was AMAZING!

Maile, the local Hawaiian on board, opened with a traditional Hawaiian prayer. Throughout the cruise, she provided many insights into the history of the Hawaiian Islands, the reign of King Kamehameha, and the story of Captain Cook. Along with some wonderful instrumentals, great food, and exceptional staff, you can't get better than this! My party had a wonderful time.

The trip was excellent. Plenty of time snorkling and also plenty of time getting into close to rocks to look at things. Also stopped to see dolphins and whales. We got lucky and saw one dolphin spin out of the water 10 feet from us. Great guides with a small group of people. Highly recommend. Captain Steve and Jill were great.

Our guide Sergio was fabulous! This is our third trip to the island, but first tour. I learned so much. Its worth every penny. It's well thought out and definitely nice to not have to drive myself
