Best turtle experience!

Great family experience. Saw so many turtles and fishes. I liked how this adventure didn’t have such a big boat so it felt more intimate. The crew was great. Went out of their way to make sure everyone had a good time.

We did see turtles and fish up close so 4 stars but you need to Go early as possible in morning to see turtles, friendly crew but small and Rocky boat. Only 1 crew member in water so this better for experienced snorkelers and not for kids or people who get seasick. Person vomited and it hit other passengers because small boat. Living ocean tours provided much better service, had more guides and really made sure you saw turtles but that was very earlier in morning. This guide for adventurous types

Overall great experience for our first snorkeling trip. We saw a few turtles which was definitely the highlight of the trip. My son dropped his go pro and our tour guides Jenna and Shawn went down looking for it. They got help from other tour guides and was able to find it. Jenna and Shawn are great. 2 hours is definitely more than enough time to snorkel. Highly recommend

Awesome experience! We saw so many tutrles and had the most special day jumping off the catamaran and swimming in the crystal blue waters. The guides were great and attentive. Having serious holiday withdrawals! Was also super convenient to cast off from Waikiki beach as opposed to the pirt which was further out.

Overall it was an average trip

It was a small boat and seating was tight, but it was fun. The staff were somewhat quiet but nice. They never gave out the fins but you really didn’t need them. Don’t go with the hire priced boats. They all take you to the same place.

The turtles were wonderful, but not enough instructions for newbies. Told us not to wear flippers, but that made it harder.

We would do this again on this trip if we could! We had a huge group of 15 people with a lot of kids (youngest 3 yo - 12 yo) — we were even running late and they were very flexible and kind about it. Both of the crew were fun, super friendly, yet professional and committed to our safety. Our kids LOVED it - they had life jackets, buoy belts, and kid-friendly snorkels. Jenna even let me free dive with her fins! We saw tons of turtles, beautiful reef fish, eels, and more! The kids also had so much fun on the boat ride! Book this trip. Have fun!! We’ll be back.

A Definite Must Do!!! Our family had a wonderful time. The crew was very knowledgeable and friendly and made sure everyone was comfortable. We saw four turtles then swam right next to our group. Such a fun time, the crew of the Manakai added new memories to our family adventures.

We saw turtles and lots of fish. Crew wasnt really engaged with the tour. The girl in the water was really nice, but the other two seemed disinterested. Asked so.e questions and either got no answer or a IDK. Would suggest going to turtle bay as the spot was very busy and we got swam into several times by other visitors.

Trip - 5/27/22- SO SO SO MUCH FUN! We had a Blast! We saw a lot of Turtles and Fish! I wanted to see an Octopus like they show online but apparently you won't, too rare. It's ok. The Captain, wife and son were just Awesome. The young blonde girl who was helping this tour, she was from another boat but was helping... Was Incredible! My cousin, who cannot swim became so comfortable with her that she actually let her bring her out and snorkel. Then my 79yr old mother did the same! (She was always willing though.. cannot hold a Beautiful, Beach/Ocean lover like her down!) Many Mahalos to the crew! "Mahalo no ka hana ʻana i kēia huakaʻi nani"!
