We can't express how refreshing this excursion was for our family. The crew was incredibly welcoming to all guests on the boat. We love the historical facts provided along the route. We even were able to spot humpbacks on the way out to Molokini. The food was good as well. We thank the crew for one of the top highlights for a family vacation. Thank you.

Not only was the trip amazing (the scenery, location, wildlife), but the staff was awesome. Every single person on the boat was super helpful, knowledgeable, and went above and beyond. This tour has it all- whales, sea turtles, dolphins, coral reefs. Overall one of the best guided trips I’ve done.
