    Amazing experience

    The team of Captain Bruce is amazing and extremely helpful. They made it a point to connect with everyone and ensured everyone was taken care of. The relationship of the team stood out as a testimony of true customer service and dedication. My husband and I had a fantastic time! We saw turtles and enjoyed the ability to be in the water and relax. This was my first time snorkeling and one of the girls really helped me. I cannot recommend them more! One of the best activities we have done on Oahu!

    Great experience!

    Captain Bruce and his crew were phenomenal. Very professional, safe, and patient! I was very impressed by the organization and how the crew (Sydney and another female) were able to keep everyone having fun and safe (20 or so people with kids). We had a child that had little to no listening skills the would not put on a life vest and the parents were listening to the child more than the crew, I thought the crew handled it perfectly by putting the vest on the child even when he didn’t want it. The location at the sandbar was beautiful and the tour guides/crew were amazing at keeping everyone safe as well as letting them enjoy time time off the boat everywhere. The snorkeling was great, again safety was stressed and communication was great. Even when they encountered some jelly fish. Over all I would recommend this company to anyone!

    Must try

    One of the best activities we did during our stay. Such a beautiful scenery. We saw few turtles on the way to the sandbar, as well while snorkeling. It was our first time trying it and they explained so well how to do it. Great crew, made the experience fun. My advice really enjoy your time there, and take your time snorkeling. I stayed bit longer and was able to swim above a turtle for few minutes such an awesome experience.
