Perfect way to see some history, kayak and snorkel.

Most beautiful water. Great snorkeling experience. Guides (Friday 1130 am tour)were informative and great with all the guests. As a first time snorkler it was extremely helpful that the guides taught me how to snorkel and stayed with je to be sure I was ok. Would highly recommend this tour.

It was really two excursions in one. The experience of kayaking to the location and then spending time snorkeling. The guides were great with my kids and explained the history of Hawaii and Captain Hook.

The tour guides were excellent. We had a great time kayaking to the snorkeling spot, where we got a chance to see many beautiful fishes. Would recommend this over the boat snorkel tour!

Our tour guides are professionals and we're glad you enjoyed the experience paddling to Capt. Cook Monument to snorkel. Only our guides get into the water with you to snorkel... another plus our tours offer!

Highly recommended. This is a very well run tour. The lead was very knowledgeable about local history and both crew members were helpful and conscientious. The location we went to was wonderful and we saw a great variety of fish. The length of the trip was perfect.

JC and Tim were awesome. Very attentive with great information on the history of Hawai’i culture and the fish we were going to see. The best snorkel tour my wife and I have ever been on! Thanks for an awesome day!

Cedar was our guide tour and he was just amazing. He is very knowledgeable and helpful. He helped others outside of our tour help when needed as they had fallen off their kayaks and were calling out for help. With no hesitation divedr in and quickly helped them. From beginning to end he made it so easy as this was our first time kayaking and snorkeling. One of the best experiences we had on the big island. Book and ask for Cesar!!!!

Disappointing customer service response

Unfortunately, I didn't get to go even though I ended up arriving before 11:30 (the start time of the tour). It turns out you actually are REQUIRED to be there at 11 or they won't contact you, let you go, or issue you a refund / reschedule date. I paid $200 (2 of us) for nothing. I really hope they are able to update the writing on the website / emails. Why say 11:30 when you mean 11am? Isn't it easier to just make the trip start at 11am, if that's when it truly starts? That being said, the tour guide did seem like a professional who cared a lot about the people's time who did get to go. I think he would have been great to lead the group - he also seemed like he loved the job, so nothing against him at all. I just wish they were more responsive when I was communicating to them beforehand / would offer a refund for people who made it all the way out, but couldn't go because they were early, but not early enough.

Well you showed up late...we don't think its fair to customers who show up on-time to keep them waiting another 30 minutes for late arrivals. The times published are departure times. When you book a flight the airlines gives you the flight time. Our published times are departure times. If you show up at the departure time you have missed your trip. Right? We recommend guests arrive 15-30 minutes before our published departure times. If you were turned away it's because guides had already begun the launch of other guests, which is about 11:30am. If you first arrive at 11:25 or later, you have missed your trip. We're sorry you missed the boat with us, but we hope all your future adventures good ones.

A MUST DO on the Big Island!

What an AWESOME adventure!!! My friend and I booked this trip and were SO very glad we did! We were briefed beforehand about safety, our schedule of events, and what we might see. We were in a tandem kayak with 4 other tandem boats. Miles and Caesar were our INCREDIBLE guides - SO very knowledgeable, helpful, fun, and entertaining! We saw dolphins while kayaking across the bay! Once we landed the kayaks, it was a short hike to where we were snorkeling. It was absolutely BEAUTIFUL!! We saw tons and tons of fish - even an eel and a reef shark!! One of my favorite excursions I've ever been on!! I HIGHLY recommend - especially with Miles and Caesar!
