What a great experience for our family. Capt. Alan and Seth were phenomenal and very informative. I faced a 30 year old fear and the entire family had a blast. Mahalo!

I took my sons for a graduation trip. We had already swam with the dolphins and rode the atvs. This by far was their favorite! Our captain knew his history and culture. Would definitely recommend.

We loved every moment of this tour! Our captain was a great guide in telling us the Hawaiian history of this sacred place and the majestic sites under water did not disappoint. We saw a large variety of sea life and it was truly amazing!

The Captain and crew were very attentive to everyone's needs. Great trip, amazing history, beautiful snorkeling, and very customer focused crew. The fresh delicious pineapple and oranges after snorkeling was just a perfect treat. We also saw dolphins and one of the babies put on a show for us!! Must do tour on the big island.

The captain and his deck hand were incredible! Professional, polite, very knowledgeable about culture as well as snorkeling. He took the time to talk to all of us, there were 9 of us on the boat, as we rode to our spot. I felt very safe with him in charge. We felt very fortunate that we booked with Dolphin! Would highly recommend!

Two beautiful snorkeling stops!
Judyth_W
, Jun. 2022
We had a very small group as several participants canceled on short notice. When you check in they set you up with your snorkeling gear, then once they get the Zodiac launched, you head to the dock. We stopped at two beautiful snorkeling spots for about 45 minutes each and had snacks after each stop. The captain also stopped along the way at different lava formations from past eruptions, so we saw some lava tubes, caves, and arches. It was a wonderful experience and I recommend it highly!

Captain Manu and his daughter were great. She checked us in and got everyone set up efficiently and with thorough instructions. He was a highly skilled captain who took the extra time to show us interesting places. He provided a wonderful narrative story of the area and its rich history, raising awareness about Hawaiian culture. The snorkeling was excellent- beautiful calm bay with great visibility. Such beauty and wonder!

We always try to find the best snorkeling spots anytime we go somewhere tropical, this one is definitely towards the top of our favorites list! Captain Alan was very friendly and informative! The boat ride out to the bay was a blast and it was nice being with a smaller group. Mahalo to Dolphin Discoveries for the awesome memories!

Everything about this trip was perfect! Great captain we had whale come out to visit and lots of beautiful fish under the water at our destination. Also on the way back the captain spotted a manta and we jumped in and got to watch a couple of them for a while. PERFECT!!!

Captain Chad was super fun and knowledgeable and my friend and I had a wonderful time! I didn't expect to learn so much on a snorkeling excursion, but I felt that it really added to the experience. I felt it was a good mix of time on the boat cruising around and time actually in the water snorkeling. My only small complaint is that I wish we would have been given the option of a wet suit (I am cold all the time, so I probably should have brought my own!).
