My family (4 adults) went on a 7-day intra-island cruise in Hawaii. I always do my best to avoid being herded around like cattle, so I research and book excursions outside of the cruise ship. Knowing that my sister and I wanted to swim with...More

When you are dealing with Mother Nature, you cannot always predict how things will turn out. I had read all the glowing reviews, so perhaps I had unrealistically high expectations when I booked this tour for my family of four for about $750 including taxes....More

Coral Reef Snorkel Adventures take you out on a small boat - max 6 people so it was perfect for a family of 4. Smaller numbers mean you can be more flexible and mobile and the dolphins are less likely to disperse. Emily, the captain,...More

We chose Coral Reef adventures based on their reviews here, and the fact that they have take only 6 people. They met and exceeded our expectations, thanks also to the cooperation of the manta rays that night. We had up to 3 mantas barrelling directly...More
