"Amazing trip - unfortunately too short"

We had a great time on this excursion and the whole crew (Mash, Mark the Sloth 😁, Rodney, Jesse and Bre) took care of us perfectly and made it an amazing trip! 3 hours were a little short for the dolphins, snorkeling and whale watching so that we almost had no time to enjoy the food and drinks, but we had a really good time and enjoyed watching these beautiful animals. I really like that the crew and the company care about nature and try not to disturb the animals!

"Disney catamaran "

We chose to do the Disney catamaran cruise and snorkel through the Holo Holo tours at Aulani. It was nice to be shuttled to and from the resort. Matt (who works at the resort) is a local who accompanied our group on the sailing. He kept our group entertained with jokes and fun information to the harbor and back. Our resort also provided us towels to use. They have food available after you board-rolls, pulled pork and chips. The purple rolls are made with taro!! They also provide all the snorkel gear and life vests with complete instructions. We got to swim with turtles, fish and rays. Unfortunately, we didn’t have any dolphin or whale sightings. Matt also went snorkeling and brought up an octopus for the kids to see and touch!! Our crew, but especially the captain, were kind and very entertaining while keeping safety at the forefront. As we sailed, they also had a local guy who played ukulele which added extra ambiance!

Gorgeous views of the sun melting into the ocean. Very relaxing and ‘chill’ experience. Saw whales and even mahi mahi caught while out at sea. Crew is awesome and a GREAT VALUE!

"Excellent time"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

We did this as an Aulani excursion. It was great, with a knowledgeable guide and they called out for whales, rainbows and showed wildlife. The only negative in our minds was the voucher from Aulani said gratuity was included, but clearly it was expected and we didn't bring cash. Lunch was pulled pork or deli sandwiches, pasta salad, and chips and salsa. Drinks were plentiful, and snorkeling equipment was provided. I would have also liked to hear more about the areas we were in or other nature we saw like we have on other tours in other areas.
