Terrible took an Uber from Waikiki for 107.00 dollars, 10 minutes before we got there they called and canceled it because the water was choppy and looked great to us. All I got was an sorry really. This is nuts on our honeymoon they don’t care at all. And ya 100 dollars too get back to the other side of the island.

Amazing experience

Such an amazing experience. Always had an irrational fear of sharks and forced myself to do this. I completely see sharks in a completely new way. Crew made me extremely comfortable and there was never a point where I felt I wasn’t in good hands.
