    Fantastic trip!

    We loved the snorkeling trip to Kaneohe sandbar. Captain Robin, Josiah and Jamie were a perfect crew to ensure we all had a blast. This is a must do when in Oahu! The absolute most gorgeous photo ops on the island.

    One of the best tours!

    SO MUCH FUN! This was our first time snorkeling and was the highlight of our vacation! Every part of the tour was top notch, to include Kaplan, our driver to the excursion! The staff on the boat were absolutely amazing! They were extremely helpful, super nice and even interacted with my 11-year old son. The boat was exceptionally clean. We were able to swim with turtles and beautiful fish while snorkeling the reef. Definitely book this tour!
