Best trip I have ever taken

Every meal on the boat was first class, chief really did a great job. All of the crew were amazing, and I mean all of them. The excursions were varied and we learnt so much about the Hawaiian islands. We saw so many wales, dolphins, and the snorkeling was really amazing. Top highlight was the night snorkeling with manta rays. I have do so much diving and snorkeling around the world and this was actually amazing experience. I went on trip with my 16 year old son and he loved the trip.
