Due to unforeseen weather conditions, we were not able to snorkel at all. The crew members promised us a full refund and were very reasonable and friendly. Unfortunately, Jerry, the operator from Diamond Head Cruises, did not follow through with the promise and communicating

Responded 4 days ago
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!
