My husband and I were certified by Rob in 2012 and have since gotten our Master Divers certification. We brought our newly certified open water diver - our son- with us on this trip and once again, Rob did not disappoint! There were 6 of us, 3 divers and 3 snorkelers along with Rob and his first mate. On the... More

I booked a whale watching tour two months in advance. I planned my holiday around this and other tours with other companies (all other tours were perfect). I had paid and received a confirmation email. So I turned up on the day and there was no one at the pier. I called them and they had no knowledge of my... More

To our valued customers, we always strive to communicate and provide alternatives when our trips are either reschedule or cancel. Unfortunately although it's rare sometimes reservations are lost or we have last minute issues, mechanical, mother nature we are sorry. My advice would be to always reconfirm any reservation just to be sure it's a go. Remember the last thing... More

My son and I booked a surfing lesson with Ocean Eco Tours. Neither of us had ever been surfing before. Our instructor, Charles took plenty of time going over all the basics with us and it really helped to put us at ease. Charles is a very competent and knowledgeable instructor and also a fun guy to hang out with.... More

My husband and I got a private surfing lesson with Charles and it was amazing ! He took us out to a nice secluded area where we were the only people around trying to catch the waves. We not only learned how to surf but we also got to watch sea turtles swimming right along with us. We enjoyed our... More

Captain Rob was amazing, he went out of his way to make the experience of going on the boat and seeing dolphins and just being in the ocean amazing!! We were able to bring my 4 month old on the boat with us, so the entire family could join in on this adventure. He engaged the young children and worked... More

Rob was great! He found us a great spot to see the dolphins and kept us traveling to stay ahead of the crowd. We were worried about going snorkeling with a 2-year-old, but Rob let him "drive" the boat so the little guy felt important. Then he found a quiet spot without a lot of waves to let us put... More

Our family had the best diving experience ever with Rob and his crew. We did a total of four tanks over two days hitting some of the best, least crowded spots in Kona and the surrounding area. Rob is a Divemaster guru and makes you feel extremely relaxed on every dive. Our group of four included two teenagers and he... More

I have been on two private cruises with Captain Rob and both were amazing. Our first tour landed us lazily off one of the the prettiest beaches in west Hawai'i, surrounded by dolphins and turquoise waters. The second tour sent us snorkling down the Kona coast, stopping to hear local lore, for local swim spots and for wildlife sightings- whales!... More

Rob and his daughter Naia made it so my family and I had an awesome time. Rob did a very good job on finding the right spots to dive with the dolphins. Also, these two are very nice people who make your trip that much more fun. If I ever come back to the main island, I will definitely use... More

Had an AMAZING time once again with Rad Rob! Greatest Captain! If you haven't been on Robs boat get to booking! You honestly won't regret it at all! I've been on his boat twice already & I've had lots of fun. It's more fun to go with a whole group of friends. Great scenery, whales, dolphins, Sharks! <---- who doesn't... More
