A Definite Must Do!!! Our family had a wonderful time. The crew was very knowledgeable and friendly and made sure everyone was comfortable. We saw four turtles then swam right next to our group. Such a fun time, the crew of the Manakai added new memories to our family adventures.

Nice, but would take a diff. One

We saw turtles and lots of fish. Crew wasnt really engaged with the tour. The girl in the water was really nice, but the other two seemed disinterested. Asked so.e questions and either got no answer or a IDK. Would suggest going to turtle bay as the spot was very busy and we got swam into several times by other visitors.

Trip - 5/27/22- SO SO SO MUCH FUN! We had a Blast! We saw a lot of Turtles and Fish! I wanted to see an Octopus like they show online but apparently you won't, too rare. It's ok. The Captain, wife and son were just Awesome. The young blonde girl who was helping this tour, she was from another boat but was helping... Was Incredible! My cousin, who cannot swim became so comfortable with her that she actually let her bring her out and snorkel. Then my 79yr old mother did the same! (She was always willing though.. cannot hold a Beautiful, Beach/Ocean lover like her down!) Many Mahalos to the crew! "Mahalo no ka hana ʻana i kēia huakaʻi nani"!

Awesome experience, saw dolphins, more practical lifejackets than other tours
Ethan_S

Awesome experience, very friendly and professional crew. We even saw a pod of dolphins as we were finishing snorkeling; the crew took the time to take us farther out to see them up close. I noticed while we were out snorkeling that a lot of the other snorkeling tours were wearing life jackets fitted around the chest and neck area. I can't say from experience that it would be harder to look underwater with one of these vests on, but I would assume that it would be because you need to be able to keep your head underwater. Instead of vests, this tour used flotation belts which in my opinion seems like a much better option since it does not restrict you from keeping your head beneath the water.

Terrible. Worst experience.
Audra_B

This was on of the worst experiences I’ve had on vacation life to date. The crew was unprofessional and couldn’t care less about the paying customers on the boat. The captain made out with his girlfriend on the beach for 20 minutes while we all waited for him to decide it was time to take off. Do not waste your money on this tour.
