I would book with these guys and look no further. Brad and Chris are phenomenal. You can tell they have years of experience. I highly recommend the zodiak, the ride is fast and fun but very comfortable and smooth, no need to worry about getting sea sick. Turtle cove was UNREAL. You’re basically guaranteed to swim with sea turtles, lots of them, and there were no crowds, just our group. The molokini crater snorkel is beautiful. You’ll get plenty of time at each stop. The crew also provided refreshments, a light breakfast, snacks and a tasty lunch. Brad and chris are knowledgeable and kept us laughing the whole time. You’ll love this experience, it gets right to the good stuff!

Did not disappoint
Rhonda_M, May 2023
Snorkeling with sea turtles was the highlight! The boat crew was great as well. Definitely recommend!
Awesome Snorkeling!
Anita_L, May 2023
Awesome experience. Great for first time snorkeling! Attention to fun along with safety was exceptional. Crew was stellar!
Laura_P, May 2023
So much fun! The ride was so smooth and I like that there aren’t a lot of people like on those big ships. They took us to two different spots. One was for turtles and the other where all the first are at the crater. The water was the bluest I’ve ever seen. Simply breathtaking!! I would highly recommend going on this adventure.
Family Fun

I saw an eel and now my life is complete. So many turtles. My daughter who opted not to snorkel was able to see many sea turtles even from the boat! The water was so clear in the Molokini crater.. great for snorkeling. The crew was so fun and if course full of great information. I highly recommend this tour!
Great experience with a great crew
Jeanette_L, May 2023

Great Snorkel Trip!

Had a great time on this snorkel trip! The guides were well versed on the animals we saw and took great care of us! It was a beautiful day out on the water.
Great experience
Amy_B, May 2023
Flexible with scheduling. Knowledgeable and friendly. Great experience and highly recommended smaller group tour.
Amazing time!!!
Amber_C, May 2023
My husband and I had an amazing time !!! The crew was fantastic, they were very kind and knowledgeable and even played great music! We saw so many turtles in the crater was just beautiful. I really enjoyed the small size of the boat in the small group of people. Would definitely recommend this company to anyone.
You won't regret it!

This excursion went way above and beyond our expectations! The crew was awesome, the locations were so cool, and the snorkeling was out of this world impressive! We appreciated that they provided refreshments (fruit, water, snacks, and sandwiches for lunch) as well as all the equipment we needed (mask, fins, and even pool noodles if you don't love swimming) to have a great time. We took a quick ride to turtle town, and was pleasantly surprised that turtles were surrounding the boat even before we got into the water. At the crater there were a few other snorkel groups, but we had our own dedicated area to explore and we couldn't have hoped for better. All in all, would definitely go again, and we have already recommended to a few others!
A rewarding experience altogether, mahalo!
Both sites were full of reef fish, that would poss for photos or video! Surgeon, butterfly, parrot, trumpet fish, of different colors and variety! Turtle cove was teaming with green sea turtles. Kind of a pit stop for them, where they had their shells picked clean by fish. No turtles at Molokini, but visibility was immaculate with hundreds of reef fish swimming around. The zodiak crew were great, very explanatory, accommodating and polite! Mahalo guys and aloooooooha!
Great experience with a great crew.You cannot miss this one!
Haider_W, May 2023
Communication before the trip was exceptional. The crew was very mindful about guest comfort throughout the experience in every aspect. Absolutely recommended!
Holli_G, May 2023
The captain and crew were wonderful. They were so helpful and knowledgeable. I would definitely tour with them again. We had a great snorkeling spot with many turtles. We were able to see whales close up even though the season is over. We also were able to spot a seal on the rocks on the coast. This was an awesome trip and I highly recommend it.
Jane was a real doll - whole crew was great!
LINDA_A, Apr 2023
Crew was friendly and everyone was very attentive. A crew member stayed in the water at each location (Turtle Town and Molokini) so you felt safe knowing someone was being vigilant. Jane was so sweet answering our questions and going over how correctly to put on goggles for those who didn’t know. The crew was so kind and would say things like “great job” or ask how you were when you were in the water which was really cool. Grateful for the chips and drinks and sandwiches, too. We had breakfast but after snorkeling your body wants that salt! 😂 Also thankful for the restrooms on the boat. I like the smaller group we had versus the larger party boats with slides. Thanks again for a wonderful time and memories!
Perfect. Unless you want a party slide

Ashley_W, Apr 2023
The crew was very knowledgeable and friendly during our tour. Lunch is included. Make sure to pack mineral base sunscreen. I recommend wearing a Rash guard to help keep the sun off of your skin. First stop was turtle town and we saw 20+ turtles chilling in there natural environment. Second stop was the crater. Many different species of fish.
Best experience
Terry_L, Apr 2023
The staff were phenomenal. Very attentive. Also helped our 5 year old granddaughter to snorkel. The best was the turtle cove. Saw lots of turtles swimming and sleeping
Highly Recommended
Alona_B, Apr 2023
Easy booking. Instructions are well stated. They send confirmation and sent a notification a couple of days prior to the trip. Because the boat is smaller so we get to experience it up close which is a great experience. We swam with turtles, saw a lot of fishes and we didn't leave till we saw whales. Loved the crew. The crew is so passionate ensuring that all of us get to have fun. Highly recommended!
