We are first time visitors to Hawaii - read all the brochures looking for a snorkel excursion. Called 5 places. Chris at Body Glove answered the phone and after I explained our age and other details he recommended the morning (8 AM) trip. Coffee and pasties on board - beautiful day. The naturalist on board, Denver, explained the whales we saw - later dolphins and answered all questions asked both in the water and the surrounding environs. All equipment was provided: my wife even got special goggles so she could see.
When we arrived at the dive site - we were the only ones there - we received a 15 explanation of do's and don'ts, safety signals, and then "the pool was open." The visibilty was great and the crew kept a watchful eye from the water and the deck of all swimmers. I took a short break for a couple of burgers and to try out the water slide and the high jump - and then back in the water for more snorkeling.
I noticed throughout, the youthful, experienced, and energetic crew made sure you were well attended to - got you a drink, picked up your trash, asked if you had qeuestions about fish or coral that you had seen. Knowledegeable, attentive, and fun.
Highly rceommend using them for your snorkel adventure.
