It was a wonderful trip to Captaun Cook's Bay Area. The fish were colorful and plentiful and the coral formations were beautiful. We saw a mama and baby whale; the captain gave us plenty of time to enjoy this experience, too.

As a person susceptible to seasickness, I loved this boat. Sitting fully outside and close to the water made the ride... More

A thoroughly wonderful day with Capt. Billy and Amanda. They went all out to make sure we swam with the Dolphins and had a great snorkelling experience by Capt. Cook Monument. Exuded aloha spirt and confidence to create a fun and safe feeling.

The boat ride was thrilling, the snorkeling beautiful and the snacks tasty. We took the Cooke Monument Express afternoon trip. Even though the surf was rough, the bay was calm for snorkeling. My 9-yr old loved every minute of it. If I were to do it again, we would wear our wet suits. We both got cold. When we got... More

Aloha, Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with the Tripadvisor community. First person feedback is by far the most valuable and we appreciate it very much. Especially when our guests take the time to detail what makes our tours so much fun as you did. You are indeed correct that the Ka'awaloa Trail leads from Napoopoo... More

We had to postpone our trip at last minute and they were willing to accommodate us to later date. I forgot the name of the guide but she was very good and she took us to various... More

We bought this trip from someone at our resort and were told it was a small catamaran. It was a rubber boat. The waves were like 12 feet high. Hung on for our life's. but since it was not seaquest who misinformed us I will say it was a five star trip. The guide was wonderful. We saw spinner dolphins... More

This was better then we expected. Get on the boat that Tyler is on, he's the life of the party. Great experience overall and great price. Loved that they lend you prescription goggles if needed.
