Captain Eddie and his crew of women were fabulous and made it a very fun and memorable day! We saw many whales and even a school of 50 hammerhead sharks!!! The crew went above and beyond! Thank you!

They took us to a couple...

They took us to a couple of different spots with a lot of wildlife. We saw dolphins and a couple of manta ray. One kid even spotted a turtle. The crew was super helpful and aware of what was going on: they were attentive to those who weren’t great swimmers and were also in the water pointing out different wildlife. They also shared the cultural significance of the places we went to, were respectful, and instructed us on how to respect the area, which was a big plus as well.

One staff kept this from being a 5 star

Joshua was wonderful- great storyteller, welcoming, knowledgeable, seemed happy to be there! The other two crew members that acted as lifeguards in the water were also very nice as well. Unfortunately there was one crew member that was rude and abrasive that soured the experience/was toxic energy. He told me to stop complaining when I was sharing one anxiety about snorkeling with my husband …and then he seemed to go out of his way to make me feel uncomfortable after that (or maybe that’s just how he is with everyone, either way it felt like he didn’t want us to be there or he didn’t want to be there- and he was in charge of equipment and drinks, so hard to avoid). Joshua did a really great job trying to create a fun atmosphere for everyone, but the one crew member felt toxic. There are other tours that do a pretty similar tour, so staff can be what makes or breaks it.

Snorkel trip with bonus whale watch
John_B
, Nov 2021
Great Sail and snorkel adventure. Crew was very seasoned and friendly. They made everyone feel at home and safe. While crusing down the coast we had a bonus of a whale who decided to entertain us even though whale season isn't for another month. Then when we got to the "Captain Cook Cove" we got a second bonus of a school of spinner dolfins which everyone enjoyed. The snorkeling was great and the sail was very enjoyable.

Aloha John, Mahalo for taking the time to review us. Your day out on the water sounds truly magical. What a pleasant surprise with the Humpback making it's presence. We hope you'll think of us on future visits. Until then, A hui hou!
