What to expect
  • After boarding your boat via our shuttle (at Anaeho'omalu Bay) or directly from the dock (at Kawaihae Harbor), enjoy refreshing tropical juices as you explore your vessel. Your Captain will provide a safety briefing as you get underway. The crew will brief you on the marine life you're going to see, and outfit you with snorkel gear. Upon arrival to the site, your crew will help you into the water and even provide a personalized tour of the reef (though you're free to explore with your buddy). When you're done playing in the water, return to the boat and enjoy beers, wines and soft drinks, as well as individually wrapped picnic sandwiches and snacks. Cruises departing on our catamaran Seasmoke (most Mondays) also include real near-coastal sailing on your return to the bay. Take the helm under the guidance of our experienced captains, or relax on deck and let us do the work!

We had a beautiful experience snorkelling on the coast. We didn’t see any whales, but we did hear them, and we did see loads of dolphins swimming next to the boat. A magical experience. The staff (Sam, Lorrie and Tom) were super friendly, welcoming and safety conscious.

Aloha, Thanks for taking the time to provide feedback about your Snorkel Adventure Cruise. We're so happy to read that you enjoyed the cruise and your interactions with our crew. We're sorry you didn't get to see the Humpbacks who you got to listen to (it's the beginning of the season here so a lot of our Humpback friends haven't yet arrived to the islands) --- but seeing the dolphins...what a treat! We know there are a lot of activity providers on the island and we really appreciate that you were able to spend part of your day with us. Mahalo and Mele Kalikimaka

What a great experience. The crew was outstanding, the snorkel site was full of all kinds of fish(big, small, colorful, etc). The captain even let the kids drive the boat to get some photos taken. Would highly recommend as our entire family loved it.

What a great trip! The captain and crew, the boat and the reef were all 1st class!! Water was super clear and reef is healthy... teeming with fish... what a variety! Captain Will knows where to go to deliver the best outing, and his team shared lots of interesting info.

Hello! My family and I went out on the mid morning snorkel/whale watch. It was such a fantastic time for ALL! My three year old and six year old had such a wonderful time in the water and on the boat. The crew was top notch and took such great care of us. The snorkeling was beautiful and the whale watching was LIFE changing. A whale came right up to the boat and hung out with us for a long time. Even the captain was blown away by this whale experience. They were super mindful of keeping the reef safe from harmful sunscreens, trash, and cut the engine when the whales came close. Thank you Ocean Sports! We will be back!

The seas were really rough that day but the captain handled everything ably and gracefully, even when the coast guard called our boat to assist a smaller vessel that was reportedly being blown out to sea (it didn’t take long and turned out everyone was fine) The snorkeling was excellent! Saw lots of beautiful fish and living coral and one very shy octopus 🐙 the lunch and open bar also left nothing to be desired.
5/5 would highly recommend!

Our whole family absolutely loved this snorkeling experience. Our young kids (ages 6, 5 and 3) have never been snorkeling before, so we had no idea how they would do. The captains and other staff were immediately welcoming of them, made sure they understood instructions, gave special attention including allowing them to "drive" the boat (while off ;) and encouragement. The boat had plenty of equipment that fit them, and while our youngest initially wasn't a fan of getting into the water, they all thoroughly enjoyed it and saw some amazing animals! We saw so many different colorful fish, a sea turtle, and my husband went further out and saw a White Tip Reef Shark with a few other people. The food and drinks they provided were better than expected. Highly recommend getting the JOTO Universal Waterproof Pouch Phone Dry Bag, which allowed us to take videos underwater with a new iPhone. After we got off and went away, we realized we accidentally dropped something small on the boat, and the staff went back and searched for it and thankfully found it and returned it to us quickly. Our kids have been asking when we can go snorkel again! We are truly grateful for this memorable experience, that is leading us to a new family hobby to enjoy together!

We had a great day on the water! The guides were awesome- knowledgeable and funny! The boat ride was fun. We saw a lot of dolphins, snorkeled with sea turtles, and an array of different fish. I would highly recommend (even if your aren’t an experienced swimmer or snorkeler!)

Booked the 9 AM snorkel trip and had a fantastic time. Our 3 boat guides were very knowledgeable and accommodating. There was a deli lunch after the snorkeling was completed. On the way back they hoisted the sails and we sailed most of the way back. There was also beer and drinks available for the return trip.

We had a fantastic time and enjoyed every minute of the trip. Our guides went out of their way to make sure we had a nice time. Thanks! Highly recommend this boat trip!

These folks know how to run an excursion. Very professional, friendly and helpful. Boat was in great shape. Very relaxing cruise with very good naturalist too. We didn’t want to come back. Welcome juice, sodas and water. Later the bar is open. They have all the gear you need and very thorough safety briefings. If you’re a first time snorkeler, you come to the right place. We’ve been on other tours and again these folks do it right! Hats off to Capt Will, Adam, Ryan and whole crew, and efficient reservation process too!
