This was OK but it was expensive - $125 a person. Food was terrible. Entertainment was OK. If you get ill tough because there are no refunds, no rescheduling, you're out of luck. If you have a family this could be a quick way to...More

Captain Rick, with Tiff and Josh working the crew for the Manta Ray Night Snorkel, were great hosts. It was a small group, only 9 of us, on a Monday night in early October. Motored out after sunset, while Josh passed out non-alcoholic drinks, Tiff...More

This is not a great dinner cruise. The entertainment was lousy. I felt like I was at an Elementary School Talent Show. Been on Body Glove Cruise's dinner cruise as well, and although the bar is not open it is a far superior experience.

The cruise really got you in the island state of mind. Wonderful dinner and staff! Band and Hula dancer was really good! The only thing that would have made it better is if the crowd would have got more involved.

We purchased a trip on the evening manta ray snorkel during September. The ocean was rough, but the crew were great and tried their best to make everyone comfortable. Unfortunately the Mantas were visiting another part of the coast that night so we didn't see...More

The sunset dinner cruise had some good scenery of the Kona coastline. On our trip, there weren't many people (16 total), so it was nice and small. Sadly, we didn't get to see much sea life through the boat's glass bottom. I completely understand that's...More
