Had a wonderful time. The team worked really hard to make sure EVERYONE had a great time; even my granddaughter who was too afraid to swim with the dolphins or snorkel.

Absolutely great time

2017/09/29 Friends Steve

We do this trip every time we are in Honolulu and every time it is great. Got to see loads of fish and turtles swimming under us! The spinner dolphins were the star of the trip. Crew were great, helpful and friendly....
