Dolphin Quest Hawaii, located at the spectacular Hilton Waikoloa Village, brings people and dolphins closer than ever in fun, interactive dolphin encounter programs for all ages. This unique experience is on-of-a-kind on Hawaii's Big Island and is great for kids, adults or the entire family! Reservations can be made a year in advance. Dolphin Quest's Learning Center Lagoon, opened in 1988, was the first of its kind and inspired a new generation of large, natural habitats for marine mammals. A portion of the proceeds from your Dolphin Quest encounter program supports vital marine education, conservation and scientific study. TripAdvisor Certificate Excellence winner for the last 6 years (2012 to 2017)!

My grandchildren (10 & 13) had one complaint; it was too short. We signed them up for 1/2 hour instead of an hour because I thought they would be bored. They would have spent the day with the dolphins and their humans.

Great experience, trainer was awesome. Dolphins were super cute but the pictures were expensive, we paid over 50 dollars for just 3 pictures

I loved the dolphins. They were so cute and sweet, and if you're a dolphin lover like me, you'll LOVE the baby. It is so cute! The trainers were very nice as well, and you are in great hands with them.

We booked the family experience and had the most amazing time-Sam (the trainer) was perfect and made our interactions with the dolphins remarkable.

We decided last minute to have the kids do the dolphin experience. Because the company had last minute spots available, we received the hour experience for the 30 minute price. Don't know how often this happens. We may have... More
