We couldn't have been in better hands. Captain Emily, Captain Chelsea and Captain Justin took amazing care of us on both our trips with them. The first trip was with Emily and Justin for a morning Dolphin swim. They taught us about the wild spinner dolphins and how to interact with them without taking away from their natural environment. It was just my friend and I as well as our 10 yr old girls that went out. Very intimate and beautiful boat trip to the beautiful coast of Hawaii. Emily really took care of our girls and taught them everything they wanted or needed to know. Her special interest and education in Dolphin behaviour helped us learn even more then we could've imagined.
There were flying fish skimming through the waves as we jetted out to sea to find the spinner dolphins. When it was time to dive in, we slapped on our snorkels and got into the water. At first we couldn't see them and then the Dolphins out of curiosity swam up and it was as though they came to say hello .. It felt like we were swimming with the discovery channel!!
Next couple of nights we went out again with Captain Emily and Captain Chelsea to find the Manta Rays. The ballerinas of the sea! It was dark and eerie with plankton everywhere. We were attached to light up boards to attract the mantas. We waited a bit then they came up and did a show for us. They really are majestic creatures!!!
We will be going out with Coral reef dives again next time we come to Kona. We really loved the intimate adventures. Having just us and the Captains really elevated our experience.. They really know how to treat their guests.. I almost forgot to mention they also even fed us; their delectable macadamia nut brownies, yummy sandwiches, snacks and (non alcoholic) beverages!!
