Sunlight on Water Reviews
I was very worried about this. We were on a cruise coming into Kona for the day. Our check-in time was for 7:30, our cruise was going to have to tender into port, and the first tender wasn’t until 7. ... more »

Steve, Andy and Captain Josh gave us such an amazing experience. They helped ensure everyone had a safe and memorable trip. I've had issues in the past with snorkelling and Steve was so helpful. I enjoyed this 200% thanks to him. They get so much joy from giving their customers a truly memorable experience. Thank you SO much. I highly recommend them and Sunlight on Water.
Though this evening the Mantas did not come out to join us. The crew was awesome and friendly, and did their 110% best to find them. It was still a beautiful evening out on the water (seen whales, dolphins and the best view of the sunset on the water.) They also provided us all with a complimentary invite to come out again, whether for this tour, for another try or any of their other tours the offer. Which is Amazing! Highly recommend booking with them!
