    GREAT EXPERIENCE!

    So happy we booked this tour! Our tour guides were Jayson and Kevin -- they were amazing and super friendly and helpful! It was just the right amount of time to go snorkeling, SUP boarding, and to soak up the sun! There was plenty of hot coffee, hot water/tea, soda, Hawaiian Sun drinks, apples, granola bars, and chips to go around! Kevin and Jamie guided us to the snorkel area, where we saw tons of turtles and fish! I would highly recommend this tour. I completely forgot it was BYOB!!!

    Great day at the sand bar

    We had a great time snorkeling at the reef near the Kaneohe sandbar. It was a fun day. My wife really enjoyed the stand up paddle boards.

    Fantastic experience!!!

    My husband and I joined Robin and his wonderful crew last week and had a fantastic time! We had read many great reviews, and we decided to go for it. We are so glad we did! This was the best thing we did on Oahu! We were greeted at our car in the marina parking lot by a very friendly and efficient gentleman on the Captain Bruce team who told us everything we needed to know and directed us to the restrooms at the marina. (There is no restroom on the boat.) Kaneohe Bay is beautiful! It’s about a 10 minute ride to the sandbar. The crew is so friendly and inviting and funny, while at the same time being extremely conscious of your safety. This is an event for all skill levels. They even offered to tow several people in our group who were not swimmers using a bar shaped inflatable, so that everyone had a great time. They first let you get used to the water at the sandbar, which is waist deep, and you can walk around and swim and use the paddle boards and floats, which is a lot of fun! You’re surrounded by amazing sea green water and tropical islands. Perfect for photo ops! Then they bring you back to the boat and you change into your snorkel gear for the deep water, and they lead everyone out at a slow pace to the nearby reef. I had never snorkeled outside of a swimming pool but I felt extremely safe with my life jacket on. They give you very soft, comfortable life jackets. I never thought I would be able to snorkel for such a long time, but the life jackets allow you to flip on your back and rest when you need to. We snorkeled as long as we could, while some others in the group returned to the boat for complimentary snacks and soft drinks or went back to use the paddle boards and floats again. We saw lots of beautiful tropical fish and several sea turtles. Two of the sea turtles swam directly underneath me! Robin and his team pointed out the sea turtles so that we wouldn’t miss seeing them. Swim close to the reef (without touching it) for the best views. I would highly recommend this tour! It’s a must-do!
