Between 10am and 2pm (that's four hours if you arrive on time) for just 40 bucks (still worth the recent price switch) you can go on the glass bottom boat, kayak, snorkel, body board (rarely needed in such calm waters), stand up paddle board, and hyrdobike (all super fun activities) as much as you want. Perfect setting too at "A... More

We were looking for something new and sort of low key to do one morning of our week-long Big Island vacation and this was perfect. We were a group of four and had the boat entirely to ourselves. We set out pretty far from the coast and were able to see quite a few fish and honu (turtles). Our boat... More

Go to the Ocean Sports shack on the beach at A-bay right by the Marriott. They have a good morning yoga class every morning on the beach. In fact, as I looked between my knees in "downward dog" I noticed a huge stingray swimming in the pond behind us about 7 feet away. It was so cool! They also have... More

Great time drifting in the bay, gazing into the coral reef looking at some beautiful and amazing fish. The crew were great; Jeff and Greg provided a great family experience. Had a rare opportunity to see a Manta Ray along with half a dozen sea turtles floating throughout the bay. Just 30 minutes long but just enough time to see... More

We made the decision to do this cruise for fun. This is pretty inexpensive as things go. I was amazed at how much coral there is in the bay.

Just be sure to wear walking sorts and shoes that come off easily, it is a water entry. But there are crew that will help you. Go in the morning, you will have the clearest water.
