≈Here at Trilogy our goal is to make your Trilogy Adventure in Paradise both educational and entertaining, but above all, we are committed to making your day with us the safest day of your vacation! All our vessels are USCG (United States Coast Guard) certified and ocean tested sailing catamarans that we designed and/or built ourselves specifically with you in mind. Your safety and comfort were critical considerations in the design and building process. Every vessel, as well as all our land based operations, carry emergency oxygen as well as Emergency AED’s. In addition, our captains and crew maintain current certifications in CPR and First Aid and adhere to USCG regulations. Also, all vessels carry slicker gear for each passenger in the event that the wind and seas kick up during a passage. If you can keep dry here in the tropics you will usually stay warm and comfortable as well.
Our crew are also there to help while guests enjoy Hawaii’s amazing ocean marine life. Whether you are snorkeling at the surface or enjoying a SNUBA dive underwater, our crew are there to supervise, educate, and assist you. Besides having a crew member to lead guests on snorkeling tours of the reef, you’ll also find a crew member on top of a surfboard ready and able to assist you if you in case of trouble. In addition, every snorkeler is provided with a BCD (Buoyancy Compensator Device) regardless of their ability. Some swimmers think this limits their mobility—the truth is the opposite happens. The BCD can be worn uninflated or partially inflated and in many cases guests find that the BCD provides them with extra flotation when they need it while keeping them warm at the same time! And yes, it can get a bit chilly in the winter, so in case you get cold our Discover Molokini and Discover Ka‘anapali trips offer partial wet suits for both snorkelers and divers that provide both safety and comfort.
While safety is our number one priority, remember that we can’t do it without your help. Whether you are out on the water with us, or off adventuring on your own, here are a few important rules to keep you safe:
1. ALWAYS hold on to something while moving aboard a vessel. Wind and sea conditions can cause a vessel to move in unexpected ways at unexpected times when vessels are underway and even when they are at anchor. So
remember to always use at least one hand to support yourself while moving around and avoid those unnecessary injuries.
2. ALWAYS use the buddy system when venturing into the ocean. Having someone to keep an eye on you (and you on them) while out in the ocean is one of the best ways to stay out of trouble. The marine life here in the
islands can be mesmerizing, but by taking a moment every couple minutes to look up and verify your buddy is still nearby will ensure you both are safe and have fun.
3. If in doubt, don’t go out. Snorkeling can be a dangerous activity, so whether the seas are rough, the wind is strong, or you are unsure of your physical abilities, it’s always better to wait until you are comfortable before going into the ocean. If you have any pre-existing health conditions such as high blood pressure, diabetes, seizures, and cardiovascular problems, we recommend you consult a physician prior to entering the ocean- whether with us or on your own.
