Tyler is an attentive guide meeting the varied experience levels and abilities of those in our group. He is knowledge about ocean life and was kind enough to offer some land options to explore during the remainder of our stay. We were fortunate enough to see many turtles, the turtle ‘washing station’ and several fish species.
Get more time in the experience on this tour!

Captain Tim was so funny and has the cutest laugh. Zack was funny too and extremely helpful. With a small group, the tour was very personal and worth the money. We spent a lot of time in the water!! We saw amazing fish and turtles. This was the first time we were able to snorkel the back side of molokini. I highly recommend This tour.
Wonderful time on the water!

This was such a great tour! We can’t say enough about our guide Tyler. It is obvious he loves the area and did such a good job sharing his knowledge with us. We were worried it might be cool to snorkel early in the am. But it was plenty warm. The shorter tour we picked was the perfect amount of time to snorkel and enjoy the time on the water. We would definitely book with this group again!
Breathtaking adventure

Jeremiah is an amazing guide and very informative. He makes sure everything was organized and all the instructions are clear and understandable. He do jokes too 😂. He makes sure everyone was safe and what to look for and where to look. I would highly recommend him and this company. It doesn’t matter if you’ve kayak and snorkel before, you’ll love this. Make sure you bring a very good waterproof camera because it’s amazing down there ☺️
