Customer Review from Janet Graham for Whale watching: Great fun and a lot of good information to learn about the whales and other marine life. We were able to see a mom and her calf, plus a male escort and the calf was very inquisitive and entertaining!

This is the best way to discover both the island's beauty and its volcanic fury. The island will reveal itself to you in ways you never imagined. Experienced guides show you the wonders of the islands, and happily answer any question you might have along the way.
Customer Review from Jesus A Romero-Perez: The only way you could really make the helicopter flight better is to land near the site where the lava enters the sea, and I guess that's a tough order to fulfill. Barring that, I couldn't think of a way to improve the flight.
Hawaii Mauna Kea Summit Tour: Once at the summit of Mauna Kea you are afforded spectacular views of the horizon, Haleakala on Maui, Mauna Kea's world-class array of telescopes, and the famous Mauna Kea sunset. Here you'll experience the spiritual energy of what many Hawaiians believe to be the most sacred place in all the islands. At the summit you stand on top of the world's tallest mountain which rises from the ocean floor to more than 31,000 feet in elevation. In your hooded parka, you'll stand in awe at both nature's sublime creation and man's astonishing technological achievements.
Customer review from M. Whitted-Villarreal for Mauna Kea Summit Tour: We really liked our guide. He was pleasantly personable, and caring. Additionally, he told stories in a lively manner, knowledgeable about the topic, and we just thoroughly enjoyed this activity.
Big Island Manta Ray Tours: Although Mantas are most commonly seen during daylight hours, it's only because that's when most observers are in the water. Scientifically, we don't know exactly what Mantas do at night or how active they are, but they may feed most actively at night, when many planktonic creatures naturally rise surfaceward, providing a rich bounty on which Mantas may feed. Using dive lights, we are able to attract concentrations of these plankton and therefore attract the Mantas.
Unlike most of their relatives, Manta Rays have NO stinger and are completely safe to be around. We invite you to have yet another experience of a lifetime...a night snorkel with these angels of the Ocean.
