Great Morning trip and experience

Great trip, they really care about the ocean animals. we saw turtles, spinner dolphins , pilot whale and beaked whales. They cater the trip to what the group wants to see and do. Jim and Alex are very knowledgeable. they make the trip fun even with Jim's jokes. Definitely recommend them and definitelyy book with them , it's a trip you won't forget.

Amazing snorkel opportunity

This was a fantastic snorkelling opportunity with a smaller scale operation. It was more personal and there is an obvious respect for the ocean with how Jim speaks and presents himself. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the waters and still provided us with an experience that was beyond what we thought was amazing - however Jim did not and offered for us to come back for another free excursion. Please support this company, you will not be disappointed. πŸ€™πŸ¬πŸ¦ˆ

The Best Tour!

This is one of our favorite excursions we've ever done on vacation! Ali and Jim were the best guides, you can tell how much they truly care about the ocean and wildlife we were seeing. We saw whales, dolphins, manta rays, and a turtle. Thank you for the highlight of our Hawaii trip!

Best Trip Ever

Our trip with Ali and Jim was probably the best part of our honeymoon. They were the kindest people ever and gave us so much information about the wildlife we were seeing. The number of different species we saw was insane. I don't think I'll ever have a day like that again. I will definitely be booking with them again next time we make it to Kona.

I went on a snorkel safari with Alicia and Jim and it was amazing! It was my first time swimming with marine mammals!! We saw so many dolphins swimming around the boat and a cute baby! We swam with the giant and beautiful pilot whales and a manta! It was an incredible experience and i hope to come back again! And the most important, they respect the animals and you will learn about them! Thank you so much again!

Outstanding Kona Snorkel adventure

Just returned from a trip to the Big Island, and without a doubt, the highlight of the trip was the Wildlife Safari snorkel trip with See Through Sea out of Kona. We swam peacefully by schools of dolphins, sea turtles, and to cap of the day, Jim and Alicia Ward (owners) found a school of pilot whales for us to swim by. I couldn't say enough good things about them and the experience. I can't wait to return and have another go. You never know what beautiful creatures they manage to find for us to observe.

What an amazing time

Jim the boat captain was funny, professional & very educational. Saw all kinds of hawaiian sea life above & below the water. I would recommend them to small groups or families looking for a private & safe open sea adventure. Also they are a local Kona company with years of ocean experience.

Lifetime Experience

These two gave us one of the coolest experiences of our lives. Totally chill and easy going people, and it’s like the ocean rewards their good vibes. We saw dolphins, sharks, and a manta ray on our tour, as well as underwater coral arches and caves. Highly recommend getting the photo package as well, we got some amazing shots back from Jim.
