The crystalline waters on the west coast of O'ahu is a sanctuary for dolphins and other sea creatures including sea turtles (honu), stingrays (hihimanu), and many tropical fish. As the longest running dolphin snorkeling tour in Hawaii, and the only tour of this category with an emphasis on the local culture, we are experts in the surrounding ocean and the local ways. You'll be happy to know we have a perfect safety record during the 20 plus years we've been in operation so you can focus on swimming with the dolphins, and, most of all, have fun!

My husband and 2 daughter (ages 9 and 12) took this tour after seeing the great reviews online. We were a part of a small group, which was nice. The staff were amazing- very fun and informative. My kids loved the staff almost as much as they enjoyed swimming with the dolphins. We were quite fortunate in that for the... More

We didn't know what to expect when we booked this tour. Our 5-year-old daughter loves dolphins and this company seemed to get good reviews. It is a bit of a drive to the west side of the island if you don't take the bus, but it is extremely worth it. From the moment we arrived, everyone was so friendly and... More

This trip was outstanding. We were picked up from our hotel, given a safety briefing, and were given the opportunity to rent wetsuits and other accessories that could be required for the trip. We opted not to hire a wetsuit, as we are from a colder climate and the water was definitely warm enough to not require one (I would... More

Enthusiastic crew and a fun day on the water. On the plus side, it's a beautiful way to spend the day and they work hard to make things fun. On the minus side, having done similar tours on other islands, the snorkeling sessions were a bit disorderly due to a somewhat small vessel and a very large group. While I... More

A great fun-filled day. The crew were fantastic, friendly and 'fit'. The whole program was full of activities, from dancing to swimming with lots and lots of dolphins. We particularly appreciated their inclusion of Hawaiian culture into the tour, especially the Hula dancing, as well as their genuine respect of the environment. A great day for me and my teenage...

The tour was characterized is such language that one would expect a great swim with lots of dolphins nearby. This is farthest from the truth! To start with, the boat was packed with people and we were like sardines in a small boat out in rough waters. That may be small inconvenience for the price of seeing a lot of... More

We went on the 9.30am tour, the bus is easy to spot and they fill you with info on the 1 hr trip to Waimea where the boat leaves from. We took our 6 yr old who can swim unaided but by law all under 12s have to wear a life jacket on the water. The trip by boat is... More

Had an awesome day with dolphins and you. The staff were amazingly funny and entertaining! Some of the best service i have ever received! Didn't get to see the dolphins up close as we wanted to but still got good footage with both including the turtles. Beautiful to see animals in their natural habitat and not in captivity. Strongly recommend... More

Wonderful crew members that made the day enjoyable. We got lucky and were able to see the dolphins on our first drop. We also saw two humpback whales from afar. During our snorkeling, we swam with fish and a sea turtle. I bought the picture package. Obviously a little pricey for not receiving professional photos, but they turned out pretty... More
