Winner of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for 6 years in a row. Aloha & welcome. If you want something a little different than your ordinary sail and snorkel trip, come see us! Only we can offer a unique experience aboard the Ocean Warrior--an 11-meter Navy assault vessel designed for and used by the Navy S.E.A.L. Teams and Special Warfare Operations. With this amazing vessel we have a further range than many other boats and can get you there fast and comfortably. Please take a look around the website to see what we offer and feel free to either book online or give us a call to reserve your seat! Mahalo!

Quite possibly one of the best water excursions I’ve ever done. Not one complaint - only praise. We saw plenty of marine life, the boat and staff were fantastic, pure Hawai’i bliss!!!

Aloha. If you are talking about the Humpback Whales then I would say a possible chance although it is little early in the season. We though look for other Whales that are residents in Kona waters. Thank you

Hi Korri You could bring a light jacket. But many just wear shorts and T- shirt. Some wear long sleeve as a protection from the sun. Wear shoes that might get wet. Thank you WHOA

Yes you pee while you're snorkeling. We can always stop the boat and you can go to the back of boat and hold on to the ladder as well while you're in the water.
