The people we met on the boat were fantastic. Due to unforeseen weather conditions, we were unable to snorkel at all, and this was explained to us. Naturally, we asked for a full refund, which was also promised to us. However, requesting a refund was a nightmare, and I would advise anyone considering doing business with this company (Diamond Head Cruises) to proceed with caution. Dealing with the operator, Jerry of Diamond Head Cruises, it became clear to me that they did not want to return my money.

11/23/2020 Dear Jenna Yoo, Thank you for your review. We sincerely apologize that you had an unfavorable experience. We truly did our very best to make you happy. I would like to take this opportunity to explain that your original booking was placed via Trip Advisory/ Viator and therefore any refund request needs to be directed to them. We are a service provider partner with Viator and do not control finance. Secondly, once the boat leaves the dock we cannot control the weather and we make it clear during the briefing that safety of our guests is our main priority. The day in question we had strong wind and murky water which is unfavorable conditions and it was all agreed with everyone to reschedule. We have it in our Captain's notes you wanted to reschedule to Wednesday the 25th November 2020 and was asked to contact our office. We also called you and left a voicemail. As the excursion was already in progress we offer our guests a complimentary reschedule if the weather turns as this is standard protocol for any operator in the charter boat & water sports industry. This is also our agreement with Viator. Furthermore, the crew do not discuss financial reimbursement as your booking was with Viator and they would have had no knowledge of that. We in turn fulfilled our commitment and offered you a complimentary reschedule which is standard protocol with all our guests as we truly want the best experience for everyone on board. We hope that you take a moment to review our response and contact us for your complimentary excursion for 2 on your next Hawaiian Visit. Warm Aloha!

Must do experience in Honolulu
, Nov 2020
Absolutely loved it. Such an easy experience. The boat ride itself was very pleasant and comfortable and have a phenomenal view of Honolulu along the way to the turtles feeding area. Once there, we saw at least 4 in our area plus many other fish, some varieties in large schools. All the safety information was clearly communicated and straight forward. I felt very safe in the water with our guide along. Highly recommend!

So many turtles!
, Nov 2020
The small group experience made this excursion so personable and fun! Noora and Mike were very knowledgeable, taking us to the turtle cleaning station where we saw so many turtles! It was nice being in a small group compared to the bigger groups that were out in the water. They served refreshments and it was a quick and easy boat ride. Well worth it!

Such a great trip ! Noora and mark were great, I loved that it was a smaller group. We got to see lots of turtles ! Staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Also had pineapple and brownies for us so that was nice. Would definitely recommend this tour
Turtles galore!

Awesome trip for the whole family. The staff was super nice and helpful and great with the kids. Saw loads of turtles and enjoyed a visit from a pod of dolphins as an added bonus.

Exactly what we wanted

We had such a wonderful experience with Captain Otter and Allie. They were very knowledgable and fun. We saw so many cool fish and a ton of turtles that liked to get close to us. We will definitely be booking again!

Best snorkeling on the island by far. Saw at least 10 sea turtles and a bunch of different kinds of fish
Best activity of our entire trip
, Apr 2020
This was the highlight of our entire trip. The crew was excellent and extremely helpful. As others recommended, the first 7am trip has to be the best. We ended up driving with a family of dolphins up close, and were able to see so many turtles. The snacks and refreshments were great, the gear was clean and in good shape. We recommend 100% and will definitely be doing it again on our next trip.
Small number of snorkelers on the boat was a plus!!
, Feb 2020
We had an amazing time on the boat. The Captain, Gabe, and his assistant were so welcoming, helpful and really made the trip pleasant and relaxing. We were able to see a number of sea turtles and fish. We loved the small number of sea goers on the boat which was a real plus.
