Been on dolphin swimming and whale watching tours with Adventure X and every time they exceed our expectations. We always have a whale of a good time!

Had a great time with Captain Kelsey and her crew....everyone was very knowledgeable about the humpbacks and we had quite a few sightings during our tour! Definitely recommended and a highlight for us on our trip to the Big Island!

Positive happy energy, friendliness and knowledge go a long way. This was just a plain all around fun trip with an all girl crew. The sun was shining, the breeze was light, the seas were calm and the whales were all around us. Even if...More

Had a great day whale watching with this crew. Jenna, Kayla and Kevin were awesome, laid back, answered our 1000 questions on whales and anything else we threw at them. We saw too many whales to count. I could have spent all day sitting right...More

Had a great time on this boat tour - the weather wasn't overly cooperative for our snorkel, so that was the low-light of the outing for sure, but the time out in open water watching the whales MORE than made up for it. Boat was...More

This was such a lovely experience for my wife and I; the beautiful scenery, the ocean breeze, seeing multiple (!) whales, catching a baby breach, all the while listening to the interesting narration by Casey and her crew. Would definitely do it again!

Hi there, not that I’m aware of. Adventure X Rafting only does snorkel trips and dolphin swims. There is a company Kohala Divers which is good up north. Otherwise down in Kona Big Island Divers or Jack’s Diving Locker.
