I am an avid water sports enthusiast and expert snorkeler and diver! I love snorkeling, diving, swimming, and other ocean activities. I enjoy sharing Hawaii's underwater world with visitors from all over the world. I like teaching people that snorkeling is easy, fun, and anyone can do it - no experience required.
Where you'll be
Based on guests ability, one of three snorkeling beaches in Hilo will be used. The tour will always start at Onekahakaha beach park, and a determination will be made about the best location based on experience.

Mikey is an awesome guide and a great person. He taught us how to breathe through a snorkel which sounds easy, but if you’ve never done its kinda scary. He also taught us how to float through the water without disturbing the fish. Mikey made the experience even better with his hospitality. He even supplied us with the goggles & snorkel and water shoes. What truly set him apart is that he seemed to genuinely care about us. We got a little chilly, but Mikey was kind enough to let us use his towels and even offered my girlfriend his sweater. Thank you Mikey for an awesome experience and being a great host! 10/10 would recommend

Mike did a great job explaining everything and making us feel comfortable before we even started. We were beginners and we quickly felt comfortable snorkeling. He eased us into it and kept checking on us. We saw many cool fish and a giant turtle! We highly recommend him!

This was a spectacular experience. I'm an experienced snorkeler, but Mike showed me how to float without disturbing the fish. It just was a totally wonderful amazing afternoon and we saw many many many colorful fish. I highly recommend Mike as as snorkeling teacher and guide. This event will stay in my memory forever.
