    Best Experience on the island!

    This is our 2nd time going to this excursion. The first we took our teen daughter and she loved it as well as we did. This time I took my brother and sister in law and they said it was “amazing”. The crew has such a vibe! The captain is super cool as well. Can’t wait to go back! Mahalo!

    Memory of a lifetime!!!!

    We would like to thank the whole staff. What an amazing experience we had. Everything was organized perfectly. The entertainment was awesome!!! We had a blast with the banana boat and inner tube. Nothing was rushed, we had enough time to enjoy all activities. They had a lifeguard on duty, while snorkeling and she even pointed out things to look for. We are definitely coming back next time we visit Hawaii, 100% and we highly recommend this experience to friends and family. We appreciate the spirit of Aloha, thank you our family will never forget this day!! Mahalo, see you soon.
