This was the highlight of our vacation. Feeling the ocean waves on this clean and spacious boat was awesome. The crew was really friendly and accommodating. The gear provided was well kept and of good quality. Snorkeling: This spot they took us was sooo clear. You could see 30-40 feet down, and they provided anti- fogg solution for the masks that made for a much better snorkeling experience. We saw 1000’s of fish along with 2 turtles. Dolphins: we had dolphins swimming with the boat- this was simply amazing to see. Food/Drinks: The sandwiches were so good and the drinks were flowing. Highly recommend this family adventure.

My best Hawaiian experience
Lynn_D, May 2024
It was a picture perfect day, a calm sea, windy however it probably always is. The crew was young but professional. Their guests safely and experience was their top priority. Although I am certified SCUBA, I very much enjoyed a more relaxed experience. The fish loved the food pellets I purchased, I was swarmed!
Dissapointing
Jeanie_H, May 2024
We have been on many catamaran tours and this one was not great. It took us for a very short boat ride just down the shoreline a short way from the port. We were let off the boat to snorkel then, after we were all back on the boat, we just stayed right in that same area just very slowly moving around and stopping, then moving another few feet and stopping again following a few dolphins for about an hour before headed back the short distance to the port. The food and drinks were good, and so was the snorkeling, but if you are looking for a boat ride, keep looking. I did make a complaint and they sent a partial refund which was very appreciated, but I would have rather have had the boat ride.
Very Fun Snorkeling
Genelle_G, Apr 2024
It was great. The crew was nice and the food was good and the snorkeling was amazing. We saw so many fish and plants. My fiancé said that he saw a turtle, but I did not. I still had fun and would recommend this to anyone and everyone I know.
Fantastic
Craig_W, Apr 2024
Snorkeling and meeting other people. The Captain and Crew were great. Number of passengers was exactly right for getting maximum enjoyment.
Yin and Yang.. but once on the water.. Super!
dann_d, Apr 2024
Pros: Captain and crew are exceptional, great people, accommodating, attentive and friendly. The Catamaran is spacious, but spartan, purposely built for short sails point A to B. With sails up, perfect! Cons: Viator's reservation info confusing and lacking in the fine details. You need to call the provider 24hrs. in advance to confirm pick up point, not "when you arrive in HNL". Shuttle pick up points can be difficult to find, as exact location point is not provided, their shuttle not marked, driver parked across the street, then calls names, amid tons of other tourists, with other transportation constantly going in and out. Drive time to and from from HNL is long. But for the exceptional Capt. and Crew, it's a 3 Star at best.
The team is fantastic!...
Daron_R, Apr 2024
The team is fantastic! They really went above and beyond to make this a memorable experience. Incredible service and warmth. Also have to give a special shout out to our driver who was willing to drop us off at a completely different location out of the way after the sailing trip. So accommodating! Would recommend.
Ok
Angela_P, Mar 2024
The crew was awesome, very knowledgeable and friendly. But where we went to snorkel was underwhelming.
Snorkel excursion - Ko Olina Ocean Adventures amazing time
John_K, Mar 2024
Great crew. Outstanding experience. Everything was perfect Beautiful scenery alongside Ko Olina shoreline.
Very average at best...
william_s, Feb 2024
Very average at best experience. We have been on mini snorkeling, catamaran adventures throughout the world, and the basically traveled in one simple circle. With terrible music and very strange spot to snorkel. Nothing special about this adventure or memorable.
A lovely afternoon on the water
JL_P, Feb 2024
The crew were awesome, clearly focused on our enjoyment. They even turned the boat around and rescued a lady’s hat that had blown off. No one expected that! The drinks were great and the turkey sandwich was huge (we ate one between the two of us). Snorkeling was so so, but that’s not the tour operator’s fault, it’s just not a great snorkeling area. Overall this afternoon exceeded our expectations.
Crew exceptionally nice and accommodating!!!
Beckydana1, Feb 2024
Beautiful views and wonderful captain and crew! We had a wonderful time whether you snorkel or not. Very knowledgeable and kind staff.
Awesome afternoon on the water - would recommend!
Kate_M, Feb 2024
We had a lovely experience doing this snorkeling trip. The crew was extremely attentive, friendly, and helpful. They all seemed like they really loved their jobs. The drinks were great and the lunch sandwich was huge. The snorkeling spot was nice - there was coral, anemones, sea stars, and a few types of fish, of course. It did seem like the fish were there to be fed (since you can buy fish food, which we did) rather than it being where they naturally live/hang out and you didn't have to swim very far for the area to be pretty empty. However, that's not really a negative for me but something I figured I'd mention! We also saw spinner dolphins once we got back on the boat after snorkeling (including one leaping out of the water and spinning) and saw a sea turtle as well. It was the most wildlife we saw during our trip and it was awesome! Would definitely recommend to someone who is staying in the Ko Olina area like we were as it was a 10 minute walk from our resort so very convenient. It was a wonderful way to spend the afternoon. Should also mention that we booked the trip for the early morning and they didn't have enough people so they offered to reschedule us to the noon trip or give a refund and we opted to reschedule. We appreciated their prompt communication regarding this, too.
The Perfect excursion!
Guy_M, Feb 2024
The crew was awesome. Very helpful. Very informative. Very nice. I would recommend this to anyone and everyone. We had a blast!!
Ko Olina Ocean Adventures Is the best!!
Elena_G, Jan 2024
They were so accommodating for our family of four! I highly recommend Ko Olina Ocean Adventures! Thank you for your amazing service!
Well worth it
Amber_P, Nov 2023
Ko’Olina is beautiful and our trip was memorable. We had a great captain and crew who made sure we were safe and had fun. The tropical fish were amazing and we even saw a sea turtle before he drifted back to his cave to nap.
Disappointing
Nancy_W, Nov 2023
The company cancelled our trip less than 24 hours prior stating that they didn’t have enough passengers. That was extremely disappointing.
Amazing!
Maisie_T, Nov 2023
We had a great time on our excursion! Every member of the crew was fun and engaging, and made it a great time. They all got in the water with us, and guided from alongside us. We saw dolphins, sea turtles, a monk seal, an octopus, and so many stunning fish. Will definitely use them again!
Fun times!
Myisha_D, Oct 2023
The crew made our outing spectacular! We had an awesome time. The turkey sandwich and specialty drink, the Blue Mermaid, were really good. I'd highly recommend this voyage.
Fabulous Excursion!
Mike_B, Oct 2023
We saw lots of dolphins, a sea turtle and tons of beautiful fish! The crew went above and beyond to make sure we had everything we needed at all times. The drinks and food were even on par. Highly recommend this excursion!
Must do awesome snorkeling adventure!
