Good experience however underwater photos weren’t taken.

It was a lovely location and the experience was good. However we were a bit disappointed when underwater photos weren’t taken. The reason given by the instructor was that the GoPro was low on battery. I’m not sure if that was the real reason or if it’s an excuse that’s given often. Given how much was spent that wasn’t an acceptable excuse.

It was okay

My 6 year old daughter loved the idea of dressing up as a mermaid but the water was cold, and she didn’t want to snorkel. The photos taken were just done on the dive instructors iPhone, so it was ok but nothing spectacular. The underwater GoPro videos were way cooler. Not sure how many kids wants to be mermaids vs ones who actually snorkel. I’d have really appreciated a just mermaid photos rate for the kids. All in all my kid was happy with the cute pics but I don’t really feel like we got our money’s worth. It’s vacation splurge?

  • Not the best pic

  • This one quite pretty though!

I proposed to my fiancé on this trip

My now fiancé loves mermaids. So I knew she would love to do this. She absolutely loved swimming with the tail on and the photo shoot we did was absolutely hilarious. If you’re a guy, you will probably have to swallow some ego here but it’s worth it. Ricki the instructor is amazing. We swam and then I popped the question overlooking diamond head. Great for all ages.
