I highly recommend Sea Paradise. We went on the deluxe morning sail and snorkel, and the sunset manta ray snorkel tour and thoroughly enjoyed both trips. Captain Mike and Josh were a great crew. Sea Paradise is a perfect choice if you would like a tour that is more adult oriented and not crowded.

Pricey but well worth the trip from Kona to the volcano , Hilo and waterfalls. Great customer service. Would highly recommend Paradise tours. We did blue Hawaiian on maui and Kauai. I think kona has more of a diversity and by far my favorite

Snorkeling with the mantas in the moonlight was one of the most amazing experiences in our lives and we enjoyed every moment of it!! Its absolutely surreal to see these massive yet elegant creatures swim so close to your face that its literally within licking distance :) At first its unnerving since you're not prepared for how massive it really...

If you want a made-to-order, specialized snorkeling, whale, and dolphin tour, book this company! Captain Tony and first-mate Sam were amazing. If you want to feel like you're taking a tour on your friend's private catamaran, then get together with your friends and plan a day of water fun. We can't say enough about this company. We have done this... More

Went out with captain Tony and Sam. They were both awesome and our group had a fabulous time all around. A smaller, more authentic experience than being crammed on a boat with 100+ other folks. Seriously, do a snorkeling trip with Sea Paradise. You won't be disappointed.

What a great day! We were a small group in a very personalized setting. They served us breakfast, lunch, non-alcoholic drinks and snacks. The snorkeling was great in two different locations. The boat was clean and offered lots a space to spread out. As an added benefit we swam with dolphins and then they swam with the boat for a... More
