Our family of six had the time of our lives on this morning charter. The boat is a really cool catamaran commanded by Captain Bryan, who is a fantastic host who seemingly bent over backwards to show us a great time! Minutes out of Kawaihae harbor, we were in the water swimming with a pod of dolphins. Next we were... More

Captain B is incredibly devoted to making sure everyone has a fantastic time. He goes out of his way to make sure you get the best sights of dolphins, whales (when in season), and the beautiful coastline of this part of the island. We were lucky enough to find a huge pod of dolphins, so we just jumped in with... More

You do not want to miss out on this amazing experience!! Captain Bryan ensures a safe ride and is very knowledgeable about dolphins and whales! We encountered huge pods of dolphins TWICE during the tour. We saw a handful of breaches, plenty whale tails and many whale spouts! Thank you!!!

Captain B is quite the guide. He is a professional who knows his stuff. It seems like his number one goal is your comfort and satisfaction. My wife and I did a morning sail. A couple minutes into our excursion we saw 5-6 full body whale breaches, quite the experience. On our way over to the snorkel spot we saw... More

Captain Bryant and crew Shane made our day today really nice. The small number of guests really was an advantage that we felt the captain was asking our opinion of what we wanted to do. We saw plenty of whales, then we got to jump in the water and swim with a pod of dolphins... we would have done more... More

A fun mid-day excursion to find some whales! Great food, fun personality and great conversation. We ended up face to face with several whales - it was amazing. Great hospitality - and well worth the price. We always find private charters to be the best value without the hoards of people!

Every time we are on the Big Island we make sure to spend a day with Captain Brian....it consistently turns out to be the best day of our trip! Several whales were spotted relatively quickly, including one that surfaced about a yard from our boat. Following that we discovered a few different dolphin pods, which we swam with, in and... More

Went out this morning on Captain Brian's catamaran to see humpback whales. We were delighted to see several pairs, some close to the boat. And we saw a pod of dolphins which came right up to the bow, playing. Brian and crewman Chris were skilled and helpful. It was very much fun.

Of all the things we did over 9 days on the Big Island, I think that our cruise with Captain Brian was our favorite. We were expecting to snorkel and maybe see some sea turtles. Instead we saw probably 40 humpback whales (including a mother and baby), we came across a group of 25 dolphins and my wife jumped in... More

Captain Brian Clark was phenomenal. We saw whales, dolphins, turtles and plenty of fish. Boat was well-stocked, and service was impeccable. Brian is very knowledgeable, service oriented and committed to an enjoyable trip. We scheduled our first trip for Christmas Day, but he called 2 days in advance to let us know the weather was not going to be good.... More
