A big Mahalo for the five star review and stellar turtle pic, Andrew A.
-Honestly I usually hate doing boat tours as usually gets super crowded.. Your surrounded by ignorant people and usually costs an arm and a leg to go..however this was 58 USD for the afternoon trip to coral gardens with lunch included.
– The tour center receptionist is ridiculously nice and super honest (if your unsure call or even go in and talk to her..she helped me a lot)
– most people like to go to molekini.. However I would suggest (along with all the locals) to go to coral gardens. The coral is brighter, there are more fish and there are Sea turtles!?
In the coral gardens there is more opportunities to see other exotic animals as well.. We got super lucky and saw some eels..a multitude of fish..a sea turtle and best of all a large spotted eagle ray (which apparently is more rare to see than sharks!).
-Food wise…wow get the chicken. You can make a chicken burger.. But the chicken itself is so moist and delicious. Much better decision than the traditional hamburger or hot dog
-Your ticket pays for all beverages (non-alcoholic and alcoholic) so remember to bring ID if you look young.
– Washrooms are probably the cleanest washrooms I’ve ever seen for a boat (except luxury boats).
– The staff is super friendly and really helpful. Don’t be shy to ask them questions!!
-There are places to rent wet suits..cameras..and prescription snorkel gear!
-It’s all weather dependant.. If it’s nice out..chances are you will go to molekini
-Had to bring your own towels
Overall: A must do”
