Overview
From the moment you see their silvery backs appear in the cobalt waters, to the moment you're swimming right alongside and hearing their high pitched clicks, there's an enchanting rush of tropical adrenaline that accompanies swimming with dolphins. Here off the Kona coast of the Big Island, Hawaiian Spinner dolphins are year round residents that ply the volcanic shore, and this tour offers local, professional captains who know where to look to find them. In addition to watching and swimming with dolphins, you'll also snorkel with tropical fish in some of Hawaii's clearest water, before returning back to shore in Kona with an experience you'll never forget.

YES!!!!!!!!!!

I am pretty reasonable but I am really tough to please! To be honest, I didn't actually want to go on the Dolphin Adventure. I wasn't sure we'd find any, and would rather be spending time on a lonely beach or hiking in Volcanoes National...More
