Our trip was outstanding! The boat is so large and comfortable, no problems with a choppy sea. Great food, good drinks and a nice and friendly crew. I think it's the only tour like this on the Big Island and will definitely go again.

Our family of 4 sailed with Captain Kirk and his Skipper Bridgett on June 19th. We have been to The Big Island 4 times and have been on a boat each trip, but no other experience compared to this one. We did the 4 hour Kona snorkel adventure and saw several spinner dolphins.
