    Itinerary

    Cruise the scenic Waikoloa and Kohala coastline on a 54 foot catamaran. See dolphins, turtles or whales when in-season or come back and cruise again free on a same- or lesser-value trip, including on Oahu. (Re-rides only, no refunds). Or use re-ride ticket value toward the upgrade price of any higher-value trip. Depart from A-Bay, convenient to Waikoloa resorts, and head along the rugged and scenic shore of Kohala, viewing lava walls, rocky points, patches of sandy beaches, and gulches rising to the Kohala ridge -- the oldest part of Hawaii Island. Pods of dolphins can be spotted along this shore and whales in whale season. It is a serene and unspoiled scene with very little boat traffic, making for an extraordinary experience. Snorkeling is among some of the best on the island, and ours is often the only boat at the sight. One of the newer catamarans on the Waikoloa coast and delivers a terrific, safe and thrilling ride. Snorkel gear and in-water assistance from expert crew are included. Picnic lunch, soda, juice & water served. Enjoy the coastal sights and a refreshing swim and snorkel.

    I had the BEST time on this tour!!! Picked up from my Waikiki hotel, it took about 45 minutes to arrive to the boat. There were only 13 of us guests on the boat, so it was nice to have a relatively small group. The crew was amazing! They were fun and easy, but the focus

    Perfect way to spend the day. The crew was amazing and provided excellent customer service. Snorkeling, sailing, lunch and drinks was a great value. As a non-swimmer I was very comfortable snorkeling with the guidance of the crew.

    This was a truly unforgettable experience! Not only did we see many turtles as promised but our crew got word of a whale shark sighting and we were lucky enough to see a whale shark up close. I highly recommend this company!

    Our family of 4 (kids age 15 and 8) did the 3 hour morning excursion on our last day in Hawaii. The crew was super friendly, fun, and knowledgeable about the island. The snorkeling was so much fun - saw tons of fish and turtles. No dolphins or whales, but we knew it was the
