    In all fairness, the week long rainy weather made it less than ideal, and the office was good about contacting us to reschedule....twice. Captain Kimo was nice and did share some interesting information, and just being out in a boat, even in the rain ...was fun. But, it

    Sorry you did not enjoy your tour. We have many folks who really enjoy the tour around Hilo Bay. We have had guests see dolphins and Rays from the boat. When the tide and weather cooperate Captain Kimo has been able to let folks out of the boat under the banyan tree to explore the shore. We would be happy to take you out again if you have the chance. We want you to be satisfied with your experience with us.

    We did the Hilo Bay tour and it was a joke and a complete waste of time. We rode 10 minutes along the bay into a cove and then just sat there for 20 minutes doing nothing. The guide finally let us out to walk around on the rocks. Then we were done. I think he was trying to

    Mimi, we apologize that you did not enjoy your Hilo Bay tour with us. We try to make sure we are clear in our descriptions of our tours. The Hilo Bay tour is intended to be a relaxing boat ride around Hilo Bay ending in a photo opportunity under the singing bridge and near the Wailuku river falls. The tour description includes these details. It is a tour designed for those who may be seeking more of a sightseeing tour. The tour duration is meant to be about an hour on the water. We normally motor by the hotels, into reeds bay and to the ice pond, then along the break wall to the singing bridge and waterfall for a photo opp, then a return along the coastline. Our captain has 40 years of experience and was born and raised in Hilo. We do try and tailor the adventure to those on the boat. If some one is seeking a little more adventure he can run the ride a little faster and as he did with you head out into the bay to maybe see some whales or dolphins. Again this is the exception and not the norm as the tour is designed as a boat ride. We would be happy to offer you a discount on our larger boat and the whale watch adventure which travels up the Hamakua coast in search of sea life. this tour is MUCH more exciting as it is a venture into deep ocean. Again sorry the tour did not meet your expectations.
