The crew was amazing and the customer service we received on this excursion was outstanding. I travel with my 11 yr. old son.....the night before, Ellie asked me what he would like to eat for lunch. They provided him with tasty Chicken tenders and fries instead of "adult" lunch, which I so much appreciated and so did he. The catamaran was beautiful and very well maintained. Both captains were great.....fun, knowledgeable and great snorkel guides. They played fun music while on board, it was very laid back and relaxing. Total of 8 people on board, including both captains. Extremely private and enjoyable. If I could give them 10 stars I would.

Amazing cruise with a great crew full of Aloha. Beautiful yatch with plenty of space to relax and enjoy. The captain and first mate were on point with the safety and they made sure we had everything we needed. We got to see turtles and spinner dolphins and snorkel in beautiful waters. After swimming they provide you with a warm shower and serve food and beverages. The boat is super clean and comfortable. We had the most relaxing time and beautiful experience out on the ocean and we would do it again without a doubt. Thank you Mana Cruises!
