Filled with the Aloha Spirit, our dynamic crew members are all masters of the sea! Our crew is CPR-certified and trained in water safety. They will inform you how to stay safe on the boat.
Adult beverages are available onboard. Please have your ID ready if you would like to purchase.
Depart from the Harbor
Following departure, we will begin our boat ride by reciting a Hawaiian chant called, “E’ho mai“. It is a prayer to the gods of the sea for a safe trip with plentiful marine life.
Snorkeling Session with Hawaiian Reef Fish and Turtles
Once we arrive to our destination, our crew will begin with a snorkel briefing on how to properly use the mask/snorkels and life-vests.
Then it’s time to jump in the water and explore! Hawaii’s clear waters and a sunny day will produce beautiful colors, bringing the reef to life. You’ll see Hawaiian reef fish and turtles!
Soak in the Scenery
After snorkeling, guests will have an opportunity to explore different parts of the boat–from the wraparound bow to the 2nd-floor deck for optimal scenic viewing.
Our crew will share information on Hawaiian marine life, such as turtles, dolphins and whales. We may even see some dolphins and whales during our journey!

"Top notch. The crew goes out of their way to make everyone comfortable. I was pleasantly surprised at the high caliber of lunch provided. Snacks are provided throughout the trip and then a bento box."
