Went out this morning on Captain Brian's catamaran to see humpback whales. We were delighted to see several pairs, some close to the boat. And we saw a pod of dolphins which came right up to the bow, playing. Brian and crewman Chris were skilled and helpful. It was very much fun.

Of all the things we did over 9 days on the Big Island, I think that our cruise with Captain Brian was our favorite. We were expecting to snorkel and maybe see some sea turtles. Instead we saw probably 40 humpback whales (including a mother and baby), we came across a group of 25 dolphins and my wife jumped in... More

Captain Brian Clark was phenomenal. We saw whales, dolphins, turtles and plenty of fish. Boat was well-stocked, and service was impeccable. Brian is very knowledgeable, service oriented and committed to an enjoyable trip. We scheduled our first trip for Christmas Day, but he called 2 days in advance to let us know the weather was not going to be good.... More

We recently went on an Endless Summer Charter and thought it was one of the most fun experiences we have had in many years of visiting Hawaii. First off, Captain B was a pleasure to work with - he is friendly, experienced, understands how to relate to children, and knows the waters. His associate Rene was equally as friendly. The... More

Just finished a fantastic morning cruise with Captain Brian and Lia with our family including 12 year old and 21 year old kids. Saw whales leaping, dolphins, and flying fish. Swam with the dolphins and snorkeled in a sunny cove alive with colorful fish and coral. Brian and Lia were great guides and hosts. They came prepared with yummy food... More

This company is all you want in a Private Charter boat! Any where from Whales, dolphin Swim or the BEST snorkeling on the Big Island! Captain Bryan is the best! Used them four times already and plan to use them every time!! A++++++++++

Captain B. has incredibly sharp eyes (leading to our close encounter with a breaching humpback) and deep knowledge of the waters and wildlife. Very good sense of humor. And it's clear he's in it to make his customers happy.

You really can't beat a cruise with Endless Summer Charters and captain Brian. The boat is the perfect size and Brian is a wonderful host and tracker of marine life. This will be our third trip with Brian and his crew. We come back year over year due to the ease of the trip, the fun and the almost guaranteed... More

Captain Brian did a great morning snorkel cruise for three couples and put us right in the dolphins. Renee (Dolphin whisperer) led us out right into the pack. They were swimming all around us and flying through the air. Water was a little choppy but Captain Brian found a protected cove with lots of beautiful fish. What a blast.!

Received a recommendation on Endless Summer and could not be more pleased. Captain and crew were outstanding, we booked as a simple sunset cruise and the trip turned into a dolphin swim, snorkel, and tubing adventure and a great sunset. Captain Bryan is very flexible and trip is limited in size to 6 or less. We went as a family... More
