We did the morning cruise with two snorkel stops. During the trip out, we saw pods of bottlenose dolphins who decided to swim with the boat for several minutes. The first stop was Kealakekua Bay and Captain Cook monument, and the second was a small cove called "coral dome". K-bay had good variety of fish, nice coral, and calm waters... More

Sea Paradise is a great way to get to some great snorkeling. There was only 7 passengers on the tour so we had lots of room both on board on in the water (unlike most of the other tour boats carry 50 or 70 passengers) The crew were very knowledgable. I would recommend this tour package to anyone.

Yesterday we took our guests on the deluxe morning snorkel boat tour to Kealakekua Bay. We had a great time. Our crew was Dom and Troy. The day started with a very nice breakfast of tropical fruit and pastries, coffee and juice. We snorkeled for as long as we wanted at Kealakekua. Their gear was clean and in very good... More

We came back to Sea Paradise with friends for the Night time with Manta Ray and the morning snorkeling by Captain cook monument. It was as good as the first one we did. I enjoyed this more in Nov as the water was nice and calm. The snorkeling with Manta Ray at night by Keauhou was so surreal. I will... More

Imagine K-bay shared by 10 people ... really it was like this - we were 5 passengers on the HokuLani, plus 2 free-divers and 3 kayakers ... that's it. I can only recommend a tour with Sea Paradise and the afternoon tour was amazing as we were only a few people at the bay and it was a treat. Both... More

The Sea Paradise crew were really friendly and took great care of all of us on the boat. We did the Manta Ray sunset cruise and the snorkelling at kealakekua bay the following day. The boat was gorgeous and the boat wasn't crowded which made the experience even more enjoyable. The manta ray swim at sunset was an amazing lifetime... More

This is a must see adventure. Our family of 6 booked this tour and were the only ones on the boat. Within 15 minutes of sailing we were in position and entered the water. We saw many manta rays feeding just inches below us. The captain and assistant were great and very friendly to work with and made everyone feel... More

The sunset manta ray trip was the highlight of our week here! We boarded with two other couples and were treated to fresh pineapple, a beautiful sunset and Troy's stories about Hawaii. The winds were not very strong that evening so we did not do much sailing around the bay. After learning more about Manta Rays, we suited up and... More

Such a great start to our trip to meet Troy and Josh (our son's Haha). We did the sunset trip but unfortunately the clouds were against us. On our boat there were only 4 others beside us making 6.
