I also appreciated the fish talk before we went. Our youngest is not a strong swimmer and struggled with snorkeling but she had a great time swimming around with a... More

You have to get up early but it's worth it. We saw about 50 dolphins playing in the water. The crew really know there stuff. They did some great explanation about the animals. You fell how they really know and respected them. After that we drove on to a nice snorkeling spot. There gear is up to date and they... More

Once again, Ocean Sports exceeded our expectation. 200 or so dolphins, amazing reefs, and a whale. Best value for your Kona trip, a must do. CJ, Jelly and Captain Paul made this a once in a lifetime experience, thanks guys, Adam and Kaylee

Valentine's Day will never be the same for my wife and I after taking this amazing, eye opening, real life experience with Ocean Sports to watch the giant Grey Whales Breach and roll throughout the ocean.
