Fun in the Sun!

This was an amazing day of snorkeling, swimming, eating, drinking and just pure fun! The crew is so helpful, kind, experienced and funny! Love them! Word to the wise: Take Bonine an hour before getting on the boat. There were several people sea sick and vomiting before we arrived at our snorkeling area. I felt so sorry for these folks. Some of them mentioned they didn't think they needed any medication since they are experienced boaters. But unfortunately they did.

Captain Erin and her crew made this Friday snorkel excursion truly phenomenal! We enjoyed exceptional service, kind guidance, and a gorgeous secluded area in which to glimpse unforgettably beautiful sea life... plus some great "sneaky Tiki" cocktails, too. :) Thank you for a wonderful day, Quicksilver team!

Not a great tour in the fall
william_L
, Oct 2021
long trip to a spot where, one hour each way. You see the same at turtle Town tour at less cost. Great crew. Very rough trip going back and got sick where normally I do not. Not worth the cost. Did not see any dolphins or any other wild life. Maybe better in the Spring
icon Response from Host , Oct 2021
We appreciate your feedback. As dolphins are not migratory animals, the time of year does not depict sightings. Like any wild animals, marine life moves around freely so there are days when we see less than others. Lanai is a unique Hawaiian island, it is an experience just to cross the channel and visit it. Turtle Town is a great snorkeling location but a totally different experience so it really depends on personal preference.

Our party of eight had an awesome time. The captain, Paul, and crew were so friendly and enthusiastic. They made us all feel so safe in the water and made sure we got to see some beautiful sea life. Breakfast and lunch were really tasty. The family keeps bringing up this tour as one of their very favorite.
