We saw the spinning dolphins, caves, cormorants, and more. The ride on the Zodiac was exhilarating! Lunch sandwiches were OK. Crew friendly and knowledgeable! As others have stated, there is no head (toilet) on the Zodiac.

We chose this snorkel adventure instead of booking with the cruise. So happy we did! There were 6 passengers on this snorkel and we got a lot of individual attention. Captain went out of his way to get us to see dolphins, spinner whales and other sights. Great, great trip! Highly recommend!

The crew was very knowledgeable about the wild life and laws concerning marine life in Hawaii. We got to snorkel with wild dolphins swimming along the ocean floor below us. Totally unexpected and awesome! We were also served a sandwich lunch with drinks and chips which was unexpected. Great excursion and the 3 hour time was perfect.

We loved this tour! On the way out the captain spotted a pod of Spinner Dolphins and we got to snorkel with 18 dolphins who were as interested in us as we were in them. We then spent about an hour snorkeling among the most beautiful assortment of fish we had,ever seen! Just be aware of the fact that the boat is,an inflatable "zodiac" type boat. It has no facilities and the ride I'd fast and rough. This wasn't a problem for us but could be for anyone with back or sea sickness issues. The crew was very helpful and experienced. This tour was the highlight of our trip to Hawaii.
