I’m a resident of 7 years here…and this is the best Dolphin, Whale, Manta Ray boat tour(s) I’ve been on here. High quality boat, that is small and intimate. The Captain and crew are highly experienced and very friendly. I just went out for the first Manta Nighttime swim, and saw 6 Mantas for almost an hour. What a life changing event!!

I love that I got to do this with my family. Lisa and Sean took us north where we kept our eyes open for humpback whales and other sea creatures. We saw a marlin jump, stopped at 2 different snorkel locations accessible only by boat, and had two different moments with some spinner dolphins. I especially appreciated the relaxed vibe, shaded areas of the boat, small group size, and snacks, and drinks. Lisa shared local knowledge, and I can't think of a better way to stay the day than to take the morning signature reef tour.

We had a great time on this trip. They were knowledgeable and friendly. A monk seal swam up and was sitting on a rope from a nearby boat. They pointed it out so we could see it and watched to make sure they we were safe and the seal was too. We were out for about an hour and several mantas swam by. They pointed out lots of other things along the way and had snacks and drinks provided. They made sure to speak to everyone on the boat and give a personal experience. My youngest son is 7 and he was able to do this with out any issues. The staff was very watchful over everyone on the tour.

We went on both a dolphin swim cruise and night manta ray cruise with this crew and we could not have asked for better experiences. We took our kiddos on the dolphin swim, they had the best time and the SOTW helped make memories for them. We used the manta swim as a date night and it was lovely. The safety was top notch, the experience was unforgettable, the price and customer service were just right. The crew for both cruises were so friendly and personable. We will definitely look to cruising with them every time we visit Kona. Aloha!

AMAZING tour! The crew is phenomenal! VERY knowledgeable and friendly! The dolphin swim was excellent! It was a wonderful way to respectfully experience these beautiful animals in their natural life environment. A unique experience that can’t be had in other places!
