    We took this helicopter tour of the volcanoes during our recent trip to Hawaii.

    Cookie & Stef prepared us for our tour on the ground by going through the safety procedures and what to expect. Sam piloted the helicopter while providing commentary and answering all our questions. We got to see the volcanoes and waterfalls but missed out on seeing any whales.

    Would highly recommend this tour!

    My husband and I are on our honeymoon and booked this tour for our second day in Hawaii. This tour allowed us the opportunity to see a large variety of “must sees” in one day. Awana, our tour guide, was extremely friendly, personable, entertaining, and full of knowledge. This tour (including Awana) was above and beyond our expectations. Definitely recommend. Long day, but worth it.

    This was my favorite tour of our trip. You go in two vans. The one that picks you up and the one that is equipped to go up to the summit. It is very cold at the summit, and the gloves and coats were warm and good quality. Use the facilities at the stop where you acclimate to the altitude. Ride to the summit is slow and bumpy which is to be expected from a totally dirt road. Personally I enjoyed that part. The star viewing was excellent. Our guide set up the telescope to see the rings of Saturn and the moons of Jupiter. One of the other guides did a talk with a laser pointer. It was a perfectly clear night and there were so many stars and quite a few shooting stars. I was able to get a shot of the Milky Way with my camera which of course does not do it justice.

    This is a must do even if you aren't into astronomy.

    We had to leave early due to lightning but they gave us a credit to come back anytime. The crew was very nice and knowledgeable as to where the whales would be. We were able to see a few whales but due to people standing up front our view was obstructed. The crew had asked people up front to sit in their seats so people in the back could see but they didn’t enforce it so people ignored them.

    Fabulous tour with a very knowledgeable guide.( I think his name is Kamakai ) he was calm, respectful and easygoing. We loved our day visiting Hilo. I highly recommend this tour. This was the best tour of our cruise, we were on Pride of America for a week. The Big Island is so beautiful and we got to see an active volcano. Wow !! Thanks again To K. 😁 for such an enjoyable day.

    The whole trip was well organised, maximising time in the water and minimising travel time.

    Staff were all great, with clear instructions. Always felt safe. But helps to have some water confidence, so that you can relax and enjoy the real show, the manta rays.

    We saw 5 or 6 and they barrelled very close to us, which was a surreal experience.

    You are in the water for 20 minutes or so. I was so immersed in the experience that time didn’t matter. And then you get out of the water just as you are getting cold.

    The equipment was all excellent. My mask fitted perfectly, no leaks which meant I could just focus on the experience. And all of us had wetsuits that fitted well.

    None of my fears, getting too cold and feeling sick, eventuated.

    And hot drinks and yummy snacks at the end. Thanks Jimmy!

    Highly recommend this excursion.

    The crew was very attentive and made our first whale watching experience an awesome one. We saw whales and dolphins. We felt very safe as well.

    I appreciated how nice everyone was. It was my first time ziplining. I am not a daredevil but have wanted to try ziplining and what a beautiful place to give it a try. I made it through 4 of the courses but I just wasn’t brave enough to continue on. The staff were amazing about it. My wife continued on and said it was so much fun and so beautiful going over the waterfalls. They do whatever they can to make you feel safe and also to have fun. I recommend it for anyone who loves ziplining

    Captain Allen and our guides did a fantastic job. I'm a scuba diver who has done many night dives, so jumping in the water at night was no big deal. My wife however was very nervous. Once in the water, she relaxed after seeing how easy it was to just hang onto the floating board and observe the beautiful mantas. Our guide Honi was very informative, giving us great facts about the Manta's. We were fortunate to see 10-12 Mantas, along with many fish. I highly recommend Dolphin Discoveries for your manta snorkel.

    The sights were spectacular and the walks off the beaten path were a plus. Our guide, Chadwic, was exceptionally knowledgeable, friendly, accommodating, good-natured and professional. We appreciated all the instructions and attention to safety. We’ve done many tours on all the Hawaiian islands over the years and this was a highlight.

    The staff were amazing! Very helpful and kept our safety in mind. They took us to two great locations. The snorkeling gear was very clean. The boat was in great shape including the washrooms.

    This was an excellent tour of the big island. About 2 years ago, my wife and I toured the whole island by ourselves on our last vacation trip to Hawaii. There was quite a bit of information from our tour guide which we didn't know from our trip around the island ourselves. Thia was a fantastic tour guide. She also had a list of good places to eat. We saw lots of natural transition in landscape. I suggest Thia, if they give you a choice.

    My 14 year old son and I went on this trip and had a great time. Our drive and dive team were friendly and knowledgeable about both the region, the water and snorkeling. We were there in January and had the opportunity to see a small pod of dolphins and we had 4 different whale sightings. The snorkeling is really great, with many different kinds of fish to see. The equipment is good quality (better than our resort rentals).

    There is a mention, after you sign up, that there is a 250lb weight limit. The driver explained that the weight has to be equally balanced on both sides of the boat for optimal speed. If you were close to that weight I would call ahead, because it could be uncomfortable to be singled out as particularly heavy if they have to keep rebalancing the weight on board. Just something to know.

    I recommend this trip for anyone who loves to go fast!

    Shoyo was a great guide. He gave us a lot of information about the island on the way up. He took a lot of photos and dropped them to us before the end of the tour. Stargazing was great, especially with the super laser pointer to guide the viewing. It was awesome to see the mountain and surrounding skies in the daylight, at sunset and at night.
