Well organised, fun, friendly crew. Only 4 minutes by boat to the site in the water. We saw 7 Manta Rays! Best money we spent on The Big Island. Thanks Captain Nick, Emily, Sam, and the rest of the crew for a wonderful experience.

They have 2 benches with backs inside the boat. The kids like the outside. It does get bumpy but the fun outweighs it.
