What fun experience and great crew. I love how intimate sized the boat was. Not over crowded, just the perfect size and amount of people on the boat. Perfect snacks for an afternoon cruise and tasty cocktails. We would highly recommend this boat and team :)

Way exceeded my expectations. The water was not freezing even though it was December. There are lots of places to sit which makes the sailing part nice and relaxing. The employees were knowledgeable and friendly. The time in the water was just right and you can buy cocktails on the sailing ride back.

Great crew, great price, best snorkeling spot on the island and possibly in Hawaii. (Captain cook tour). Potential improvement: sell some sandwiches onboard, got super hungry after the water. :)

Highlight of our trip

It was the highlight of our trip to the Big Island. Boat crew was awesome. Kealakekua Bay is just a beautiful place to snorkel. We saw dolphins and a whale while sailing. We had about 40 minutes to snorkel. I wish we had a little longer. Or maybe I was messing around with my phone (in a water-proof pouch) too much trying to take pictures and I wasted my snorkel time. :-) Very fun.

We had amazing time there! The catamaran was magnificent and the crew members were friendly. We got to spot some humpback whales on the way to the Bay, in which had so many colorfil fish. Highly recommended!!
