What you'll do
We board a our boat (The Outrider) exploring the coast and snorkeling the coral reefs searching for all of the best marine life Hawaii has to offer—turtles, tropical fish, dolphins, octopus, rays, eels, and even reef sharks. Every trip is unique, as we will see different marine life each time and visit a different area each time. No two trips are the same! The area we explore is usually remote and far from all the crowds, allowing for a more private experience.

Born in Hawaii I've spent a good time of my life in the ocean. When I'm not in the water, I am helping others learn more about the beautiful ocean and all of its amazing marine inhabitants. I have operated kayak tours, captained boat tours, led snorkel tours, scuba tours, and even submarine tours as a pilot. The ocean is my passion, I hope to see you in the water! I am an underwater naturalist, certified diver, certified first aid/cpr, and 100 ton licensed boat captain
