    We booked this last minute and it ended up being the highlight of our trip. Don’t hesitate! Well worth the money and the crew was amazing!!! Honestly, it would have been worth it even without seeing whales.

    The first trip was cancelled because of the weather but we were able to reschedule two days later. We saw a lot of dolphins and quite a few whales. Even with a lot of dolphins around it took four tries until we were able to see them in the water. The crew worked very hard to make sure we saw them. After that we were able to snorkel with sea turtles and saw more whales on the way back to port. We had an absolute blast, one of the best memories to take home from Hawaii.

    My daughter and I had our first sail cancelled due to wether but were able to get on the next morning’s tour. The crew was courteous and funny. My daughter loved that their dog Buddy was on the boat with us. The captain needed a whale whisperer and we volunteered my daughter. It’s a story and experience she won’t forget. We soon saw two whales spouts and tails. The dove multiple times and we could see them come up once more. I learned a few things from our captain about the animals and the island itself as well. We saw dolphins from afar since it was still their sleepy time. We had a great time and recommend this crew. Will book again!

    Our tour guide!! Kainea was the best!!!! Hearing about the history, culture, agriculture,migration, languages etc We were going to rent a car for a day but the price and parking in hotel at 50 night and not knowing where to go…. And especially not getting that narrated tour… I am so glad we did this! It included lunch and a booklet on Oahu nature. AC bus… highly recommend

    For the money this was a good tour. The bus picked me up on time. The staff was very friendly. Megan, Uncle Billy and Tom provided an overview about what to expect and things went smoothly.
    The boat was not as spacious as I would have liked, however, the crew was just delightful. Jermey the MC, provided all the safety information and rules for the boat. Captain Danny did a good job of getting the boat in position so we could see the marine life. On this particular tour we were fortunate to see a whale, sea turtles, dolphins and a hammer head shark. Whiles snorkeling we seen ma y schools of fish, as well as more see turtles.
    I do not swim, so I was relieved to see how the crew took such good care to make sure everyone was comfortable in the water.
    The meal was what would be expected on a tour for that was not expensive. The crew also did a dance performance which was entertaining.
    I feel like overall for the price the tour was worth the money.

    One of the things I most wanted to do while in Hawaii was to swim with turtles. I thought I would have to drive somewhere, but I went to the tour office at the Hilton Hawaiian Village and Forrest (who was very helpful) told me that there is a boat that will take my husband and me out from the hotel. We booked it right away, and I'm so glad we did!! I was a bit afraid, but the crew was very thorough and reassuring, and they were watching us every step of the way. I got out in the water and began swimming and soon I was swimming with sea turtles!! I got close enough to see one's ancient face (at least six feet away). Once back on the boat, we were given lunch and cocktails: Turtletinis and Driftwoods! We then sailed out to Diamond Head with the most spectacular view and gorgeous ocean. Captain Justin was helpful the entire time and Ryan was particularly attentive. We had the best time! We will never forget it!

    Not sure which was better the submarine tour or the Guide Jason. He is a great story teller and Hawaiian cultural history teller. Kept me laughing up until the sub surfaced. Still mad that I fell for the final “whale on port side “ just as we surfaced! Great trip loved every minute.

    To see the whales close up for more than 45 minutes was amazing. In reality we knew that that was every chance of seeing nothing, in the end it was a bucket-list experience that we will never forget

    My husband and I had a great time on this excursion!! Ian was a great guide with tons of knowledge about the islands and a great sense of humor. He also gave us info on the history of Hawaii, which was really cool to hear. Lunch at Fumi’s Shrimp was delicious, a local spot that was one of our favorite meals we’ve had so far. The macadamia nut farm (yummy coffee) and dole plantation were nice, and something to check out if you want to revisit and take more of a tour with. Our entire group chose the botanical gardens, due to the weather. We enjoyed seeing the waterfall and walking through the gardens. There is a small cocktail station, some additional lunch options and a beautiful gift shop. We also visited a quaint little town with wild chickens (and their babies) running around, which we thought was adorable! This was my husband’s first bus tour, and he will compare all future trips to this, he had such a great time. I doubt any future guides will live up to Ian’s reputation! Thanks Ian for a wonderful and memorable day!

    Great sights! We saw 3 pods of whales. I’d bring binoculars were I to go again. Friendly crew and the naturalist was awesome.

    Incredible experience to see the island from above and many spectacular views you’ll never see any other way! From hidden waterfalls to whale breaches and a Birds Eye view of Pearl Harbor. Too many things to list!! Impressive service - would totally recommend. Did doors on front and off in back - perfect option for everyone!!

    Excellent guide very knowledgeable of local area
    and a good sense of humour. A different form of transport for a tour. Would recommend Keoki as a guide
