What You Can Expect

Leeward Coast Dolphin and Snorkel Half-Day Cruise

Dolphin-watching along the Ko Olina Coast

Your Oahu sailing adventure begins at the Waianae Harbor, where you will board a sleek catamaran and set sail along the Leeward Coast. See the playful dolphins jump, spin and splash in the water, and keep your eyes peeled for turtles and other marine life. During whale season (November through April), you might even spot a humpback! Enjoy a delicious continental breakfast as you sit back, relax and admire the idyllic scenery.

Next, your captain will stop at a calm snorkeling spot. If you’re a beginner, you’ll easily learn how to use the snorkeling equipment, how to breathe through the snorkel and what safety measures to remember. The use of mask and fins is included, and you’ll receive a snorkel to borrow. Jump into the water with your professionally trained guide, and spend 30 to 45 minutes discovering the magical underwater world of Hawaiian marine life. You will see everything from brightly colored coral to schools of tropical fish.

After working up an appetite from snorkeling, sail back to Waianae Harbor as you feast on a buffet lunch, including hot dishes, salads, a gourmet sandwich bar, side dishes and desserts. Enjoy unlimited nonalcoholic drinks and two free alcoholic beverages (for those 21 and up).

Dolphin sightings are guaranteed on this Oahu cruise! In the rare event you do not see dolphins, you will be offered a sunset cocktail cruise or snorkeling adventure for free!

This tour operator offers a whale or dolphin sighting guarantee December through April!

Brilliant half day trip the boat, crew and lunch were excellent. Saw small pods of dolphins and swam with a large variety of fish and a couple of turtles. Would definitely use this boat company again for future trips in Hawaii.

Everything about this tour was fantastic, from the pick up in Waikiki to the onboard service of all the staff. They were more that happened to share their knowledge and experience of the wildlife throughout the trip. Food was amazing, staff were fun and scenery spectacular.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2015

Captain (Mosh) and crew members were fabulous. Water was choppy and no dolphins or whales seen on this trip so was invited back (comp ticket) for another try on Friday, January 2nd. Even bigger wells but wildlife galore, including sea turtles, breaching whales and spinner dolphins. The rainbow over the harbor was an added bonus. As a former Safety and Risk Manager, I really appreciated the focus on safety both for the passengers and wildlife. This was the highlight of my 2 week stay on Oahu. Thank you!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended February 2015

I had a great time! the crew was so helpful, and patient! The only thing I was sad about, was that the dolphins swam off before I got into the water! Was a wonderful trip, would do it again!!!
