I loved it! My tour was filled with divers so I had the snorkel instructor to myself!!!! She was amazing and helpful. They provide snacks and drinks on the boat for free! The staff was amazing. I would book another trip with them.

Jim was an incredible boat captain. My family had a wonderful time. I strongly recommend this for anyone traveling to Waikiki. The sunset was beautiful thanks to captain Jim

Great Tour Guide “Juice”. He made the trip very entertaining and enjoyable. Pearl Harbour was very sobering but a definite must see. All in all, a great experience

Fantastic time for the family. Swimming with turtles at sunset in the shadow of a rainbow. How did they do that? Magic!

The tour guide was very helpful with the history of the island and knew great locations throughout the journey.
