Great time. Recommend

It was a great experience. It was nice to get out into the water on a boat and see the views from that angle. The captain and his wife were very nice. They stop in hopes of seeing turtles and stop for you to get pics with diamond head in the background and his wife even takes photos for you so you can have your whole party in them.
