We were a part of 2 adults and 2 children. Booked this 2-3 hour tour at Aulani Disney 1 or 2 days before. Driver pick up was prompt. When we arrived at the harbour for sail, there were only 12 of us on the catamaran that'd normally take 80 (this was in June 2018). There were at least 5 or maybe 6 staff on board and all were funny and friendly. Made the atmosphere party-like with loud music and lots of enthusiasm. Every now and then, we sat or stand alone to the side, one of them'd check on us to see if things were ok. They found dolphins, captain whale, and when we went snorkeling, 2 sea turtles. The water was beautiful and the sea animals amazing. For my two little kids, this was a great experience that'll last a life time.

Highly recommend the sea turtle snorkeling. Kristen and Don were phenomenal guides. They took special care of small children in our group. Recommended for little ones who have no snorkeling experience. They will teach and help them. The turtles surfaced with us and we literally swam the ocean with them. It was unforgettable.

Highly recommend this tour company. Small number of passengers, crew very attentive, easy access in and out of water, crew member in the water with you. Morning cruise better water is calmer. Snacks and beverages provided along with snorkeling gear provided

It was my ultimate dream to swim with turtles and today it came true! Had the most amazing time swimming with beautiful fish and green sea turtles. Watching them in their natural habitat is so incredible. We also saw dolphins on the way back. The staff were so awesome, they were really fun and made us feel safe especially in the water. The cocktails were a nice finish to it all ! Thanks Guys would recommend 100%
