    This experience far exceeded our expectation, the crew were extremely friendly and very accommodating to our 1 year old daughter, and the small group size made it such a great experience. A couple drinks after the snorkeling finished was a perfect ending. Oh and saw so so many turtles!

    I have three words for you BOOK THIS EXCURSION!!! I HIGHLY recommend this tour/excursion! This was my first trip to Hawaii and this tour alone was the highlight of my trip. The crew members are so energetic and caring. I felt like i got to truly experience Hawaii on the dolphins and you tour. I want to give a huge special shout-out to the life guard/crew member, Tika. Tika seriously went above and beyond for me. I do not know how to swim and I jumped in to the ocean with a life vest. I had a panic attack and full on meltdown of crying but Tika made me feel safe and was extremely caring. She was by my side the whole time and guided me to not be as scared in the water. She helped me make my dream of being in the ocean a reality. After a few minutes with Tika’s help I was even kayaking in the ocean. I don’t want to make this a super long review but bottom line is you should book this excursion (even if you’re having second doubts like I was due to not knowing how to swim). Book it!

    of course the snorkeling was the best part! The crew and their hospitality was above and beyond! They were amazing and without them it wouldn't have been the same. Thank you for one of the best experiences of our lives!

    Best thing we did in Hawaii, would recommend this to anyone. Staff were great and professional sailors, photographers, captains, guides etc. They handed out snacks, food, and water. It felt like they were having fun with us not just for us. Obviously they don’t control the dolphins/wildlife but they work with other captains to locate wildlife. We didn’t get to swim with “dolphins” but we swam with pigmy killer whales (technically a dolphin) which was rare even for the guides. Would do it again if/when we go back. Well worth the price and the time! You’re missing out if you don’t book in my opinion.

    Excellent adventure! I have done it twice now and both times were terrific! The time goes by really fast while you are under the water, take lots of pictures! The guides are extremely informative and you feel comfortable and safe while on board the submarine. Its cool, comfortable, and not crowded. Seating is bench-type side by side. Going up and down the ladder to enter and exit the sub is kind of tricky, I would not recommend for anyone with mobility issues or weak legs. Tight quarters so do not go if you are claustrophobic in the least. You will see lots of fish and sea creatures. Worth the money in my book.

    Great staff. Very attentive and really looked after us. Despite it pouring with rain and no sunset it was still a great trip and we would do it again with this company - and hopefully get a sunset!

    Best Birthday present to myself EVER! I took my mom back to Honolulu for our birthday's as they are both in August and on my actual birthday she talked me into doing a "Doors OFF" helicopter tour of the island and was it ever worth it!! Our pilot was KYLE and he was amazing (after watching our video I realized I was VERY much in his personal space and he never said anything .. just keep telling us all about the sites!!) I was able to get some of the best pictures and see the Hospital I was born in from above .. I mean you can't miss Triple the big Pink hospital :) If you are on the fence about doing this Don't be just DO IT because it is AMAZING & So Worth It!!!!

    After a lengthy search for just the right tour, I made reservations for Oahu Nature Tours' Ultimate Circle Tour on August 31, 2022. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed the day. Our driver was skilled and cautious. The bus was comfortable and had large windows. Our shrimp lunch (included) was delicious.

    Our Hawaiian born guide was wonderful - he shared information about Hawaii's history, culture, economy, famous residents, geography, and so much more!

    Having read reviews before booking, I was aware that the women on the tour would be facing the usual long lines at the rest stops. I was also aware that due to drought conditions, the Waimea Waterfall was completely dry, but the beauty of the Waimea Valley Arboretum made that stop well worthwhile.

    The only negative comment I have is that our final stop at the Dole Plantation was not for everyone. The merchandise in the store was overpriced, but at least the pineapple smell that was in the air was pleasant.
    Lastly, Michael Walther's Pocket Guide to Nature on O'Ahu, which we all received, is a great source of information! I've already used it to identify birds that we saw all around the island.

    This trip was wonderful. The trip left on time and had a smaller group of people. We traveled about 10-15 minutes to the snorkel site at Waikiki. Once we arrived we were given our safety instructions along with our snorkel gear. Our guide told us we were to stay way from the turtles but the turtle didn’t seem to know that. As several came up for air as we were swimming around they would pass right by you and you had to make sure to move away from them. The area seemed crowded with all of the boats in the area, but once in the water and following the turtles it seemed to break up. We saw several turtles and many different kinds of fish. Some even said the saw a jellyfish. I would recommend this to anyone that visits the island.

    Our tour guide “King Mike” was hilarious!! I highly recommend this tour for families not wanting to be just a number. The bus was comfortable, plenty of space yet still small enough to feel like you are travelling with friends. King Mike gave us plenty of time to take photos and was not rushed. Lots of knowledge about each area dotted with funny stories. Had a great bunch of people that we didn’t know but everyone was friendly and looked out for one another. Snorkelling was great! Recommend to bring flippers if you have them and floaties to make it easier. It was reassuring to have a life guard watching us the whole time. Would have like to have more time at Dole Plantation to be able to go on the train. Overall a great tour to get the layout of the island with an amazing tour guide.

    The ride up the hills was a bit rough, however, it was still an amazing experience. The educational pieces of the movies that were filmed there was pretty awesome.

    My sister and I went out with Bryce and Drew and they could not have been more helpful or charismatic. We had an amazing time and learned so much! Out of all your diving options, you should go with One Ocean because of how they truly care for the ecosystem you are going to see! I would do it again a million times over.
