Very cool must-do on the big island

Captain Chad was super fun and knowledgeable and my friend and I had a wonderful time! I didn't expect to learn so much on a snorkeling excursion, but I felt that it really added to the experience. I felt it was a good mix of time on the boat cruising around and time actually in the water snorkeling. My only small complaint is that I wish we would have been given the option of a wet suit (I am cold all the time, so I probably should have brought my own!).

I think this location has better snorkeling than Maui. Beautiful coral reef with so many beautiful fish to observe. Loved the small group. Only four of us and the captain. Captain Patrick was fabulous. We did sight seeing from the boat to the monument and back. Boat ride was also fun. Boat ride probably isn’t for everyone but my dad and I sure enjoyed it!

We had a fantastic trip with Patrick. He gave us some history of the coast prior to stopping at the bay for snorkeling. We had an incredible time snorkeling and saw so many fish. The boat is large enough that even on a windy, wavy day, we didn’t have any issues. High recommend.

It was the highlight of our trip! There were so many fish with so many amazing colors and they were inches away. The history we learned was also great. Even saw about 10 dolphins swimming near the boat as we docked.

Jen was a fantastic captain and made sure we had a great day on the water and gave us tips on where to swim to get the most out of our snorkeling. She also took a lot of time to show us different landmarks along the way.
