We loved it. We got to snorkel, see a very rare seal (Hawaiian monk seal) from close-up, watch a few playful whales and dolphins, experience the reef for the first time. We felt well taken care of. The crew is very nice, considerate, helpful and caring. Can strongly recommend.

Staff did a great job with COVID precautions and lifeguarding during the snorkeling time. We saw whales on the way back and they did an awesome job educating us about the whales and what was happening. Lunch and service was seamless. Would definitely go again!
