So first the crew was absolutely amazing! They were fun, upbeat, and enjoyed what they do! Next after the safety speech they greeted you with a local beer or cocktail (ask for the turtle-tini!), but then you go to the turtle cove get your snorkel gear ready and then into the water! We saw about 9 sea turtles while in the water ! Once we got back to the boat, we enjoyed a nice complimentary lunch which included some locals fare and some pulled pork sandwiches! Then we continued by raising the catamaran sails and saw a pod of dolphins and two wales, who breached with their tails! Again if you are looking for a cool experience take this tour, well worth the money spent, in fact I thought it was a bargain considering the complimentary hotel transportation, food and beverages!

"West Coast Scuba - Waianae Boat Harbour"

Great service all round. Hotel pickup and drop-off very convenient from our Waikiki hotel to Waienae Boat Harbour located out on the west side of island. Having dived this location previously I rate the visibility in this area as incredible and thoroughly enjoyed the 4 scuba dives we enjoyed on this trip. We booked 2 days of scuba diving for 2 adults and had a double dive each day. Crew were friendly, experienced and very helpful sharing their knowledge about each dive site. They setup our dive gear based upon info provided when we booked these dives and it made the dives pleasant and memorable. We were treated with dolphins swimming in a pod alongside the boat and also enjoyed seeing whales on one day. Will certainly dive with these guys again next time we visit Oahu. Highly recommended and great price and service overall.

We had a fantastic three days of diving. The crew were amazing and showed us a great time. My son who is 12 was completing his advanced certification and had the best instructor (Mark). He was excellent and my son enjoyed his teaching style. Learn and have fun at the same time. We will definitely dive with Hawaii Nautical and Mark again.

Captain Amy and her crew were great, the catamaran was beautiful and clean, and we were able to see whales, spinner dolphins, beautiful views including a rainbow, fish while snorkelling and even a sea turtle! The water wasn’t cold like I had expected so that was a nice surprise (I don’t do well in cold water.) The breakfast and lunch offer was delicious and I’m a picky eater 😉 The whole experience made me want to go again. It was by far my favourite adventure when we visited. I only wished there was more time to snorkel. Tip - if you bring a smartphone to take pictures underwater, test it out before hand because swiping to get the camera/video options doesn’t always work. And if you get a disposable underwear camera, remember you must wind the camera after each picture 🙈

We took a whale watching and snorkel trip on a 65’ catamaran. The boat was fairly new. The crew was great. They brought us to an excellent snorkeling location. Worth the trip.
