Your check-in procedure was extremely cumbersome. We were traveling as a group of 7, including an 85 yr old senior. I stood in line for 15 minutes to check in for our group only to find out that EVERYONE in my party had to make their way thru the SAME LINE again, waiting as I did, just to sign a waiver. Yes, they were all adults. The lady finally agreed to let me run a separate clipboard our to my dad to sign, rather than make him also go into the building. Then, we waited in the equipment line for another 10 minutes, only to be sent away to "get our equipment onboard". We then waited in the line to get onboard for ANOTHER 15 minutes! Silly process in the hot sun...

Was a fabulous experience, we saw a pot of dolphins swimming alongside our boat.

The water at Kealekekua Bay was crystal clear and excellent for snorkeling. Don't snorkel at one small spot for too long as there may be others that offer better aquatic life viewing. Though this is not a "true" sailing tour (though the sails were up, we motored almost the entire way) and we didn't see dolphins, we still enjoyed the tour without regrets.
