We went out twice with this group - once with Captain Steve and once with Captain Bob. Both were excellent. They listened to what we wanted, knew the area extensively, and tailored our day to our wishes. They were efficient, safe and fun. We loved every minute and are so glad we made the investment. Private, magical, safe and exciting. Amazing!

This was not my first time snorkeling on a boat in Hawaii and most boats go to Captain Cook's Monument -- which is an overall great spot, in a calm area, and encompassing a pretty large bay. We'd been there before and it was good to go there again -- tried and true. The other two spots were new to us -- Place of Refuge area and the

- 5-min boat ride to the mantas - good if you get motion sick (others tours take up to ~30 min)
- Wetsuits and snorkel gear included, as well as water, hot chocolate and cookies after the snorkel
- Guides were very knowledgeable about the mantas, super friendly, and very good at looking after my mom, who was nervous in the water
- We had a fantastic showing with about 6-8 mantas that came right up to us, often within a couple inches
- Highly recommend the GoPro rental,if you don't already have one

We saw wales and dolphins on our way out. Then we went snorkeling on three different stops. I saw turtels, a shark, octopus and lots of fish. The guide explained different things about history, the island, sea condition. We god fruits and cookies and later sandwiches, chips. It was a really nice trip and we were lucky seeing all this stuff. Great captain and staff!
