Turtles, fish and fun!

The staff on this trip were awesome! They were helpful, humorous, diligent, and very easy to talk to. The boat was comfortable, the food was tasty and the equipment was in great shape. We saw several turtles at Turtle Town and it was great to have the turtles swim so close to us! At the Molokini scuba site the life guards were great and kept a good eye on the crowd of snorkelers. We did see several kinds of fish but it was crowded with so many people in a relatively small area. We were all glad we made the trip on the Calypso!

My husband and I had a great time! We sat in the front of the boat, which was amazing for the views. Breakfast was pastries and fruit, they provided vegetables for snacks, and lunch was a pulled pork sandwhich and chips (other option was turkey sandwhich). Food tasted good, and there was a suprise ice cream bar on the way back to the harbour. We saw many turtles and fish! And the crew was excellent, funny, and efficient.
