This trip was awesome. This was my first time in the ocean and it was a great experience. Once I got past the nerves of being in the food chain, it was great. Also, Never mind the fact that a giant sea dragon (Sea turtle) decided to pop up between my legs. And though the crew briefed us, if you see a turtle “don’t scream”… yeah… I yelled like a 6 year old seeing Michael Myers for the first time!! After I got past the sight of that sea dragon (turtle) staring me awkwardly in the eye, salt water in my lungs and eyes, and a school of fish at my feet …(remember, this is my first time in large body of crystal clear beautiful blue water) some random guy in another group yelled “SHARK”… back to the boat I went. After about 5 mins of my wife and a crew laughing at me, I decided to toughen up and head back in. And I’ll tell ya what, it was a great experience. Best money spent on the trip yet. So good that we are booking it again. The crew was great. Spent extra time chasing a pod of dolphins!!

Modest price point but the experience was very good. Staff were friendly, courteous and helpful. Two lifeguards on site for safety and on the lookout for turtles. Even got a ride towards diamond head at the end of the trip.

So much fun! Saw a lot of turtles and fish. The crew was amazing. Would definitely recommend and will go back to the same company in the future!

Awesome guides. Super easy and we saw some fishes and turtles. Overall, good value for the money.

The water was kind of murky, but we did see several turtles and some good fish
