Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I really appreciate and enjoyed myself outside of the fact that I was seasick. I really appreciated that Aiden checked in on me a few times during the boat ride since was sick. I hate that I did not get to snorkel like I had planned because of the sea sickness. All in all, I would definitely recommend this boat tour. My husband and I felt like this was such a great experience for anyone to have!

    If you are visiting the big island, this activity is a must do, add it to the bucked list as soon as possible. The trip provides you with enough equipment and snacks to fulfill your experience with the tour. It took 30 minutes to arrive at the spot of the manta ray, and then everything after that is a story to tell.

    We booked this experience for the last night of our stay on the big island due to so many other rave reviews we heard about it while visiting. I am so glad we did! We experienced an up close and personal view of 8 to 10 manta rays during our snorkel. The Dolphin Discoveries team did a great job from start to finish! Would highly recommend!

    The customer service of the crew on this tour was excellent. We felt safe both on and off the boat. We were on an early morning tour, so breakfast and lunch was appreciated.

    We cannot emphasise enough what a fantastic experience this was. To be so close to these wonderful creatures is a privilege not to take lightly and although we have a week left in Hawaii it will remain the highlight of our trip to these islands.

    We can heartily recommend Chris and Budda as guides/ sailors/ fonts of knowledge/ raconteurs and they were the icing on the top of a very good cake.

    If you visit Big Island this is a must!

    I have done a couple of snorkeling tours on the Big Island in the past, but Dolphin Discovery’s Captain Cook & Place of Refuge was the best so far. We were the first ones to be able to explore beautiful Captain Cook Bay since the boat leaves from nearby Keauhou harbor. The Captain Chad and Jen were fabulous, knowledgeable, kind, and had great sense of humor…kept all of us on board happy and safe all the time. Being able to snorkel 2 different sites was such a treat, too!

    What an experience! Service was great, weather was perfect and the staff was very informative. They took time to answer anyone questions and very knowledgeable about the Mantas. We were so lucky to have around 14 mantas swim with us. We also had to bottle nose dolphins join in also. A experience I won’t ever forget! Highly recommend the crew from Hawaii Island & Ocean Tours!

    Captain Dante and the crew were an A team! Lots of historical facts shared and excellent care on the boat. We had an extremely dangerous medical emergency in the water and the captain and crew jumped into action and saved a life. Their training in CPR and defibrillator use was impressive and they were able to get the man back to harbor where EMTs took him to the hospital. The captain then extended our tour and took us back to snorkel so nobody lost any time because of the emergency. A class act. We will use them for all our excursions!

    Very knowledgeable guides with helpful insights to the area and marine life.
    A fun tour for all ages, highly recommended for anyone wanting a smaller layback and intimate tour with a difference to other larger tours.

    I could not have asked for a better experience. Even though the water was SUPER choppy, the staff was amazing and calm. They made sure to explain everything and made sure everybody felt comfortable. They gave us information in and out of the water. I honestly couldn’t have imagined how amazing this experience was! I would recommend it to anybody! Don’t forget your camera and something warm for the boat ride back in. I would also recommend some Dramamine ;) lol

    This was truly a bucket-list adventure. We saw rays early and often and even got a manta “kiss”! Tanner, Britt and the rest of the crew were outstanding. Go Konastyle!
