What you'll do

Snorkel by about 20 to 300 Wild Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins! We do this activity off a ( Zodiac Navy Seal Speed Boat sitting on the RIB )For the adventurous adrenalin riders ONLY ( this boat ride / ocean can be rough, bumpy & choppy on rare occasions) this is not a slow cruise boat, please don't come us if you feel you'll have a negative experience, feel free to cancel with us after booking. 14 guest MAX on the boat! There is not much space, this is not a luxury cruise boat.

We leave the harbor, searching up and down the coast looking for pods of dolphins. Once we spot dolphins, we snorkel with them and watch the dolphins swim & play.! Afterward, we enjoy brunch on the boat. Whale watching is seasonal (December - March). Whales are not guaranteed. Pilot Whales we have all year round but only seen a few times a month.

The time duration of this tour is not exact ( 2- 4 hours ), the tour can be shorter or longer than 3 hours due to how far the Dolphins are from the harbor, how long you snorkel, weather, ocean conditions

Our experience does not include chasing, harassing, swimming after, feeding or having direct contact with dolphins for example such as dropping guest directly on the pod of dolphins. We are in complanate with federals law. ( we have no control if dolphin swim by us )

Once in a lifetime experience swimming with couple pods of wide dolphins in the ocean. We were very lucky that the dolphins were right by the entrance of the harbor, so no need to search up and down the shore.

This was a really fun time! Chase is a wonderful captain and was very thoughtful and thorough in making sure everyone in the group experienced the dolphins. These dolphins are so beautiful to see!

Chase was awesome! Very thoughtful and considerate of both guests and animals. He was intent on making sure every single person saw a dolphin, and had a good time. Would highly recommend for anyone looking for a fun hawaii adventure :)

Overall great experience. Air bnb overbooked us so one of the members of our party could not go and we were unaware until the day of. Also we were told to meet an hour earlier with late notice. I guess the time can vary because the dolphins have a schedule of their own lol. There was also a great coral reef to snorkel in!
