Aside from great snorkeling....

JC was knowledgeable and friendly, and happy to go wherever we wished. He added little "extras" as well. We would highly recommend chartering his boat!

This company has the best price, great crew that is all about their guests. We love the boat and smaller group of people. You learn a lot about the island and we got 3 fabulous snorkel spots!!! Highly recommend this trip - a must!

Fantastic experience for both my wife and I. You can't get any closer than 2 inches away as the Manta glides past your face.... Also a huge shout out to the staff and guides as they made us feel safe, secure and communicate very well and just made the overall experience awesome.

I took the afternoon Captain Cook Snorkel Tour and it was fantastic. Captain Dave and Hope were engaging and informative. The boat is a large raft so if you're whiny and fragile then it's not for you. Be prepared to hang on a little bit and enjoy the waves. We saw a manta ray and several dolphins along with the...

Captain Dave and his second mate Hope gave us a first rate zodiac trip to Captain Cook Monument plus we went and visited many of the sea caves along the coast. Captain Dave was full of great information on both the history of Captain Cooks demise and the lava flows that made the sea caves. We went in a zodiac... More

Great tour - manta rays really do come right next/above/between you and you get to watch the tumbling up close. Crew was excellent- explained some of the scientific details but kept is very light/entertaining. The GoPro rental is a cool option for $35 and you keep the 16G memory card at the end...great underwater footage as a lifelong memory. Boat... More

too pricey for the delivered experience. Gear handed out to customers in the middle of road at night from a Van. Gear was not fitting every customers size, oversized people got left unfitted. Customers should have been told that neoprene gear is mandatory- everyone was freezing cold in the water after 30 minutes. Captain and crewmember used 'old' and 'stale'... More

Best tour I have ever been on. I am 62 and not very fit. I was easily able to get off the raft and with a little from the very kind guides! Back on again. JC and Hana were great. Snorkelled 3 different reefs, each different in makeup and types of marine life seen. All the sea caves we entered... More

We had an amazing time on this trip! Our crew was so fun, knowledgeable and helpful the entire night! Our captain was Manu (sp?), and we had Tyler, and Hana (sp?) as crew members. They were absolutely perfect. There was a woman on our tour that was scared to get into the water, so Hana swam her out to the... More
