We’ve snorkeled all over the Big Island but this was such a unique perspective! We visited 2 shipwrecks went down to 113 feet. Sharing the underwater world with so many kinds of fish (and a shark) was amazing! Our guide was very knowledgeable on the fish species and the wrecks. The company gives a substantial military discount so be sure to ask if that applies to you. We loved it so much we wanted to go again during our stay but it was booked.

The staff was so professional and helpful. My son who is developmentally disabled, was able to enjoy an underwater experience with such joy and comfort. They were very helpful with mobility issues climbing down the ladder to get into the sub. It was really a great time and lasted about 1 hour and we went down 107 feet.

Six stars! Had an absolute ball. Cannot endorse these guys any more. From check in to disembark the crew were so friendly. Special shout out to Tony (you’re welcome Tony, lol) for his impressive knowledge and light hearted, albeit “under pressure” (boom boom) humor on the day. Apologies to our photo bomber, can’t recall your name, but special mention also. Will recommend to all of our Aussie mates who venture to big island in coming months

Wow! Really did not know what to expect but it was outstanding! The shuttle boat out to the sub was smooth and boarding the sub was no problem at all. There was a customer who showed up with a walker who had no problem transferring into the sub. The trip down was flawless and once to the sought after depth, the sights were nice. There was an awesome speaker who described every fish and item we passed. When we finished, the trip back up into the boat and back to land was no problem at all. We took a lot of photos! Once under water, there is really no movement stemmed from the current so there was no motion sickness.
