My family, group of 4 including myself, experienced the 4 hour tour with amazing Captain Tim! We luckily were the only family who booked the 7am-11am tour. Tim took us to see the sea caves which was such a great raft adventure! We headed over to Molokini Crater. Wow!!! Such an assortment of fish. Tim then took us over by Turtle Town where I got to swim with 5+ turtles!!!!! After we swam with fish and turtles we headed towards the direction Tim thought the dolphins may be and sure enough we saw dolphins!!!! On the way back in from such an amazing tour, Tim spotted and we got to stop for two whales!!!! Was truly a trip of a lifetime

Our captain, Jimmy took us expertly through some massive swells. I’ve skydived and had lots of countless adventures and I assure you this one is Absolutely fantastic. I laughed my face off multiple times. Now that I was faceless it was somewhat harder to enjoy the gorgeous coral, school of fishes, spinner dolphins and turtles. I Persevered and even managed to inhale more than my share of delicious lunch sandwiches as no one else was apparently hungry. As it’s likely your world view will change, not for the timid. Do recommend.
