This was such an incredible trip and I couldn’t recommend it more. We saw dolphins, some octopi, a million turtles and even a (small, docile!) shark - I felt totally safe as a new snorkeler and as someone who is terrified of deep open water. The crew gave clear snorkeling instructions and were in the water on surfboards in case anyone needed anything. I don’t understand how anyone could have anything bad to say about this trip - ignore the bad reviews. The crew, wildlife and overall experience were amazing.

Rachel_D, Jun 2023
We really enjoyed our time on the quicksilver tour! The ride out to the snorkeling spot was about and hour and a half. We then snorkeled for about and hour. We then got back on the boat for lunch. The pork sandwiches were amazing, and we ate A LOT! There were alcoholic beverages offered on the ride back to the dock (which were very good). The crew were all very nice and worked very hard. Highly recommend.

Beautiful, educational, awe inspiring.
Cynthia_m, Jun 2023
The whole crew was very nice and VERY helpful from the moment of checkin. Toothless is personable, fun and very caring. I was one of the sickies. They didn’t even charge us for Dramamine. Apart from me being sick and only being in the water about an hour, everything else was perfect! As I was yaking off the back of the boat toothless even offered me water to wash my mouth in out. It’s like they care about every single person on a personal level. I’m 100% going to book them again, I’ll also be using the seasick patch lol
Response from Host, Jun 2023
Wow, we are so glad you enjoyed your trip despite the seasickness! Our crew always goes the extra mile to make sure our guests are enjoying their trip. Mahalo for recommending the Lanai snorkeling and dolphin tour aboard Quicksilver!
