We had an awesome time with Hawaii Nautical. Mash Brad and Masa were an excellent crew and they went out of their way to ensure everyone had a good time. We went out with them twice, once for the Sea Turtle snorkel adventure and for the Friday night dinner and fireworks. I highly recommend both.

Warren and mark took excellent care of our family (7 of us and only 2 of us certified). The kids and our friends got training and help so that we could all do 2 dives together. We saw turtles shark octopus and tons of fish. Great great trip. One of our friends was very scared and mark was so patient and stayed with her until she felt comfortable. Highly recommend this outfit and would use them again. My 10 year old now wants to get certified she loved it so much.

We went whale watching May 17th and we knew this was the tail end of whale season and the odds of seeing one were slim. Regardless, we went on the tour and it was a gorgeous beach. The crew was really engaging and friendly. The vessel has a bathroom and an on-board bar for ordering drinks. We enjoyed a beautiful cruise along the shoreline and had a wonderful time. Would have loved to have seen whales but it wasn't in the cards. We did get a re-ride voucher but opted to use our time doing other things since we thought it unlikely to see any whales. No shortage of things to do in Hawaii!

"Whale watching tour"

We went in April even though the whales were already leaving the waters around the islands but captain Amy was knowledgeable and was able to find a few of these amazing creatures for us to see! We also saw many sea turtles and dolphins during our tour. The crew was very attentive and knowledgeable about the island's history and wildlife. They told several.stories of the fishing villages as we sailed on by.
