Winner of the TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence for 5 years in a row. Aloha & welcome. If you want an amazing ocean adventure like no other offered in Hawaii, come see us! Only we can offer you the comfort and speed of the Ocean Warrior--an 11-meter Navy assault vessel designed for and used by the Navy S.E.A.L. Teams and Special Warfare Operations. With this amazing vessel we have a further range than our competition and can get you there fast and comfortably. And did we mention that our captains are world-class freedivers and underwater photographers with over 20 years of ocean experience? Take a look around the website to see what we offer and feel free to either book online or give us a call to reserve your seat! Mahalo!

We saw humpback whales, dolphins, swam with pilot whales and had some fabulous snorkeling. With such a small group it was like a private tour. Loved it.

This was a great unexpected surprise. The whales, dolphins, manta rays, snorkeling were absolutely amazing, not to mention what the boat can do. When you add the crew to the mix, you have a winning combination that is tough to find.

Aloha. If you are talking about the Humpback Whales then I would say a possible chance although it is little early in the season. We though look for other Whales that are residents in Kona waters. Thank you

Hi Korri You could bring a light jacket. But many just wear shorts and T- shirt. Some wear long sleeve as a protection from the sun. Wear shoes that might get wet. Thank you WHOA

Yes you pee while you're snorkeling. We can always stop the boat and you can go to the back of boat and hold on to the ladder as well while you're in the water.
