  • We are an extended family of 11 with children aged 5, 7, 8, 9 and 12. Simon and Nate made the whole experience easy and peaceful for all of us. In addition to holding onto the illuminated float, they ...  more »

  • Staff were very professional and knowledgeable about the dolphins and fish we saw. Boat was clean and all equipment was provided (could also bring your own). Boat had a nice covering to block the sun, and traveled at a refreshing pace. Seats were small but comfortable. Snacks, drinks, and lunch were great. Saw and swam with many wild dolphins, "K-bay" reef (by the Captain Cook Monument) had great snorkeling. Did their best to accommodate less confident swimmers and snorkelers. They even provided an interpreter for a group of Japanese speaking tourists on our boat. Couldn't be happier with this experience. Not a guided snorkel/swim, we were free to explore. Never felt rushed to get back on board. Worth much more than we paid! Would highly recommend! This boat leaves on time!
  • Captain Simon and Nate were awesome!!! They were very friendly and knowledgable and made sure that safety was the #1 priority besides making sure that we had a great time. The boat ride out to the manta ray area was awesome, we saw a TON of dolphins which made the trip even more memorable. Also best thing about this company is that there is NO timeshare presentation required as a lot of other companies require them. Captain Simon and Nate: THANK YOU for an amazing experience!
  • These guys are awesome! Super cool boat ride and beautiful snorkeling! The waters were too rough to get out with the dolphins and they offered us a free second ride to try again. They didn't have anything else booked while we were here and they went through the trouble to find us a different company and made us reservations free of charge. That is amazing service and they went above and beyond anything expected to give us an amazing trip and experience! I would recommend these awesome people to anyone!! Hang loose friends!!
  • I’m a local from Hilo side and I got to say I was very impressed with this tour. The guys were awesome and super friendly. They knew some cool spots to stop and show us. I would highly recommend hang loose tours. The dolphin swim was great and the snorkeling was epic. Love that I’ve lived here my whole life and I can still experience new stuff with good company.
  • Best of all was the price. No groupon and it was like 80 bucks a person for a 4 and a half hour tour where you get to swim with dolphins, snorkel Captain James cook monument and get a shore tour on the way back. Second best (only because the price was so awesome) is the staff. The owner is the captain and he loves what he does. He is professional and informal at the same time. If you pick another tour, all you're going to get is less service and more cost. This place has a great boat and just a great vibe. I loved it.
