I had a great time diving with Mike and his crew. It was my first time diving and Mike was a great teacher. The whole process was very safe and I felt very comfortable. We went on 2 dives and saw all sort of interesting sea life on both. It was a very fun day at a great price.

The booking process was simple. We were able to switch to texting as I was booking night prior. Easy directions and meeting spot. The guys were great hosts and fun to get to know. The ride out we spotted spinner dolphins and they drove around to ensure we got some great pics! The snorkel was great. We had some nerves... More

We did two dives in the morning, and another at night with the manta rays. We saw fantastic things on each dive. Mike and Nikki make the effort to provide a safe and fun diving experience. Their knowledge of the area and its animals means they can put you exactly where you need to be.

Best diving experiences ever! We're all certified scuba divers and I can honestly say that Mike and Nikki have the best company on the Big Island! The sites we dove had a little of everything, from a Hawksbill turtle to three different types of eels and a pair of Lined Butterfly fish. We were lucky enough to come across a... More

Go here, now! My friends and I wanted to do night snorkeling with manta rays and go scuba diving, but none of us are certified and we were not going to be on the Big Island long. Mike was great at helping us book everything promptly and maximize our time. The night snorkeling with manta rays was absolutely amazing, one... More

Just got back from our night manta ray snorkel - A-MAZING! I found the crew to be very friendly and experienced. Mike, Josh, Chris - and another guy whose name we can't remember, but he's from Tahiti, so we're calling him Tahiti-guy - did a great job explaining what we'd see, how to stay safe, etc. The rays were absolutely...

It is often difficult to keep 2 teens happy on vacation and this was a highlight. We went swimming with the dolphins (and manta ray as it turned out) and had a blast. Captain Mike gets major points for easy communication - he responds quickly to emails and was flexible when our plans changed. Once we were on the boat,... More

My daughter and I decided to try this intro to diving as we love to snorkel. Our instructor was great, gave easy to understand instructions and worked with just the two of us. Went down for two dives and it was like swimming in an aquarium! The colors and variety of fish was incredible and Nicky showed us all kinds... More

These guys are awesome! Our 2nd time going out with them for the night snorkel with the giant manta rays - and thrilled again. Good sized boat with great staff - but they don't pack folks on there like sardines (like some of the other boats we've seen) and you get a much more personal experience. Highly recommend Captain Mike... More
