You really can't beat a cruise with Endless Summer Charters and captain Brian. The boat is the perfect size and Brian is a wonderful host and tracker of marine life. This will be our third trip with Brian and his crew. We come back year over year due to the ease of the trip, the fun and the almost guaranteed... More

Captain Brian did a great morning snorkel cruise for three couples and put us right in the dolphins. Renee (Dolphin whisperer) led us out right into the pack. They were swimming all around us and flying through the air. Water was a little choppy but Captain Brian found a protected cove with lots of beautiful fish. What a blast.!

Received a recommendation on Endless Summer and could not be more pleased. Captain and crew were outstanding, we booked as a simple sunset cruise and the trip turned into a dolphin swim, snorkel, and tubing adventure and a great sunset. Captain Bryan is very flexible and trip is limited in size to 6 or less. We went as a family... More

When two teenage girls and their grownups agree that the catamaran trip with captain Brian and his crew was their Big island vacation highlight twice in a row - it must be pretty cool. We loved the relaxed atmosphere, the respect for the wildlife (especially the dolphins), the pacing of the trip, the service and the people. Snorkeling, water fun,... More

My husband booked a private charter with Captain Brian to take us on a sunset cruise for our wedding anniversary. It was just the two of us plus the crew (the Captain and his first mate Leila). I cannot rate this crew highly enough. Captain Brian was an extremely competent and affable hand at the wheel, taking us into coves... More

We've been all over, on dozens of boat trips. We've even done this trip on another boat. Chartered a half day trip with Captain B and first mate Damon and they delivered in spades. You can't control the gifts the ocean will or will not yield on any given day, but we would have had a blast if all we... More

What a day - like no day has ever been! There were six of us - ages from 12 to 73 - and we had the time of our lives! Brian found many, many spinner Dolphins and it was an indescribable experience to swim in the open ocean with them. He and Damon were full of information and were very... More

Great day! Captain Brian and crew were all so kind and accommodating! Offering up a generally wonderful time ~ after a fantastic sighting of dolphins and a wonderful drifting snorkel. The crew snorkeled with us ~ pointing out particular fish and corals. We swam with dolphins, and had delicious food and snacks! They had so many options of fun to... More

We've been on group snorkel excursions, but the crowded boats just aren't our thing. We contacted Endless Summer on Sunday, set up a charter for Thursday and had an AMAZING time!!! They take a max of 6 guests on their catamaran so there is plenty of room to move around and/or lounge on the tramps or the deck. We found... More

I'm a local to the area and I've been on multiple charters but this was by far the best one ever! The smaller more intimate charter guarantees for a good time! Capt Bryant and Jackson are awesome guys with great personalities. Top notch service! We had 6 people on our charter and that made it so much easier to swim... More
