Overview

Step aboard a 54 foot catamaran for a dolphin and turtle cruise from A-Bay that includes snorkeling gear and assistance from on board snorkel guides. Since the catamaran has ample deck space and shaded areas to relax, it’s a comfortable, uncrowded way to cruise the coast, and you’ll have the chance to spot humpback whales during the whale watching months of December through April.
  • Spot dolphins or turtles, or cruise again for free
  • Slip into the water to snorkel with provided equipment
  • See gorgeous coastal scenery from the water
  • Stay energized with an included picnic lunch and drinks

Amazing Crew and Snorkeling

Loved the small occupancy catamaran. So many large schools of fish! And great cocktails after everyone was out of the water. It was an extra treat to be under sail on the way back. So peaceful and beautiful. Or was that the coconut Mai Tai ...

Great snorkeling!
Kathryn_K

The snorkeling location was excellent. Water was clear with a significant variety of coral and gorgeous fish. The water temperature was a bit cooler than we like, but wearing a rash guard or vest compensated. The boat captain was friendly and competent, and there was plenty of room to spread out on the craft. Abundant drinks and snacks made up for the so-so sandwich that comprised lunch.

We had a great time. Snorkeling was good. Not a ton of sea life but water was clear. Saw a ton of dolphins and two whales. Crew was fun and helpful.

Uncrowded boat, happy crew and way more than we bargained for!

We went for the sail experience but we got way more than that. We did NOT go hang out with any other boat. We went north instead and our captain spotted whales and we watched for as long as it took to get that complete experience. Then we stopped over some beautiful coral and snorkeled while our guides brought sea life from beneath up to us to see and sometimes feel. The wind picked up on the way back and our captain unfurled the sail and shut down the motors for some real sail time while we lay on the net. Could not have been better in any way and no tip for this crew was too big!

Many other excursions better than this one
Minette_W
, Aug. 2021
Disappointing experience. The crew’s enthusiasm was low and uninterested. The female captain didn’t even know one of her crew member’s name. The energy of the boat therefore wasn’t good. We didn’t see any dolphins and just a tiny baby turtle for maybe two seconds. The snorkel experience also was not as described. Same type of fish as in the Captain cook area. Currents were strong but crew didn’t stand at the platform to help guests up or take their snorkels or fins from them. This was described to me as a “luxury” trip. For the price, the sandwiches like reviewed before could have been better. They draw you in with the free alcoholic drinks but I prefer better service who are there to share knowledge and excitement for what we were about to see or experience.

Would take this same adventure again.

, Aug. 2021
We were the only group at our snorkeling location which gave us plenty of space and no worries about keeping away from multiple boats. The crew was very patient and responsive to our special needs (one family member with limited mobility and 3 special diets). There was a "no rush," relaxed mood. And, what fun to see the sails go up on the catamaran and sail most of the way back to our departure point. Thank you, Mike, Cayenne, Nicole & Bradley.

If you visit Hawaii you have to get out on the water at least once. Catamaran was perfect. Never felt crowded or rushed. Crew was super chill. Hadn’t ever snorkeled before => really enjoyed it. Great job Captain Julie!
