Fantastic experience, great crew
Edgar_M

We had an excellent time. The snorkeling was phenomenal (a bit crowded but that’s understandable) and we saw beautiful fish and an octopus. The staff was great, particularly Eddie who was very attentive helping us with our masks and always fun. The boat was loaded with snacks and the crew was very gracious and helpful.

Aloha Edgar, Mahalo Nui Loa for taking the time to review us. We are so happy to hear our crew was attentive and you had the opportunity to see some of the beauty Hawaii has to offer. We hope to see you on your return visits to the island. Until then, A hui hou!

Best half day snorkeling for Big Island
Mel_W

Crew was great! They will answer any questions you have and give you snorkel tips if you are new. The boat was well kept and had room for everyone to sit comfortably. We got almost 2 hours of snorkel time (about 50-60 mins at 2 separate sites). They provide reef safe sunscreen (you will need to reapply multiple times), snorkel equipment, and noodles for flotation. Breakfast was fruit and pastries. Lunch was sandwiches and chips. Overall, a great experience and highly recommend if you want to snorkel near Captain Cook Monument without a big hike.

Fantastic experience!

Captain Morgan, Alex and Noi provided what became a far more amazing snorkel experience than expected. The snorkel trip was the highlight of our stay in Hawaii! While perhaps not common, we had bottlenose dolphins swim with us, while the crew reeled in a 30# Ono and got to have an octopus hug our hands with its suckers and watch as it disappeared by changing color when it re-attached to the sea floor. Enjoyed talking with the crew and had a fantastic time

Aloha Jeremy, It sounds like you had an incredible day out on the water! It's very rare we have a combination of all 3 of those wild marine animals make their presence in a single given charter. We are so happy to hear our crew made part of your day that much more special and that you had a great experience with Sea Paradise. We hope to see you on future visits to the big island for more adventures! Mahalo Nui Loa

Tony/Alex/Bailey (our crew) were amazing. I’ve never snorkeled before…felt informed, comfortable, confident, and safe. It was an incredible experience…I’d go again in a heartbeat, especially with that crew! A must do adventure for your visit!

This was amazing. The crew in the boat made it even more fun. They were super funny and had great history stories. Way better than I expected because they were less expensive than the others

The ocean was blue, the sun shinning, it was a perfect day. The crew was fantastic. It was awesome to snorkel at two different locations. This was one of our favorite outings.

Our trip was fantastic! The crew was so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable about the island history and culture of Hawaii. The food was plentiful and good, and again the crew was amazing. The snorkeling was fun, lots of fish, eels and even an octopus. Would highly recommend this boat and crew for a wonderful Hawaiian adventure on the water.

Poor narration. Wouldn't do it again.
JDE
, Feb 2021
The narration was scripted and not personal. There was no explanation of where we were traveling to or how far. Even knowing that whale sighting is unpredictable, some description of what to expect would be helpful. The seats are also not very comfortable for a two and a half hour ride.

Magical experience with a very nice crew. We loved every single part of the journey: the morning breakfast, the two different snorkeling times at two different places, the history of the island told by the crew members, the sailing and the lunch. Very friendly atmosphere on board.
