Each day something special & amazing happened. There is no other way to match this experience unless the training is done at the same location because it is truly unique- from swimming with the dolphins in Kona to the Goddess festival to the farmers market & fruit stands to the amazing staff at Hawaiian Sanctuary, to swimming on a black sands beach… Irreplaceable. All of it. I recommend it to anyone & everyone!” ~ Siobhan O’Donnell – Cloud Nine Graduate
