    Best excursion for our family!

    Our first time going to the sandbar, and, we all absolutely loved it! We had a private tour, which was definitely the highlight of our vacation. We have two boys, ages 8 & 9, who enjoyed the water play with all that’s available, even more than the snorkeling. Our tour guide Jason, made sure the boys had a good time and kept them feeling safe. What more can a parent ask for?!?! His patience in helping us with first time snorkeling for our boys was greatly appreciated, too. We adults also had an awesome time and relaxed at the same time. Jason made all this happen for us. Highly recommend!

    A+ outing always

    This was our 5th outing with Captain Bruce's crew. What distinguishes this tour from others is that the same employees stick with the company and they experienced and experts with hospitality. Other companies you don't know what to expect but this is consistently excellent. Saw tons of turtles and really had a blast. By far our favorite thing to do on Oahu. Well worth the money. Can't wait to come back, yet again, for another family outing.

    First time snorkeling

    It was a great program! I don't know how to swim but the captain guided me the whole way through the beautiful underwater world. A very good and trustworthy captain! The food and drink nights on the boat were plentiful and delicious! Every crew member was friendly and fun! It was a great experience for me and I hope I can take a second time after I learn how to swim! 🤣
