Why Our Insiders Chose This Tour
Watch spinner dolphins fly through the air off the Oahu coast. Onboard educational programs and the freshly grilled burger lunch make this cruise a hit with kids.
What You Can Expect
Unlike the whales that migrate in winter, dolphins are year-round residents of Hawaii and are commonly spotted on the coast. In fact, dolphin populations are so steady on Oahu’s leeward shore, that dolphin sightings are guaranteed on this two-hour Oahu eco-tour! Scan the horizon for splashes and flutters and dolphins leaping in the air, and Hawaiian spinners can do seven spins in one powerful leap.
Certified naturalists provide onboard lessons on Hawaii’s different dolphins species, and a video presentation helps educate keiki (children) about dolphins here in Hawaii. After finding a wild pod of dolphins and watching their thrilling splashes, build yourself a gourmet burger at the onboard BBQ buffet. For some added history about West Oahu and cultural points of interest, select the added transportation option from Waikiki or Ko Olina resorts.
Terrific. Captain and Crew were very friendly and professional.
Very good, although I felt the actual sightings of dolphins were a little limited not enough time was spent with the dolphins themselves. But crew was professional, courteous and service was excellent.
Lunch could have included more than a burger and condiments. Dolphins were nice but trip went much quicker than anticipated.
We boarded the catamaran at 10 a.m., road to a spot where dolphins are known to frequent, found a group of dolphins, and followed them for 30 min. We ate hamburgers at around 10:45 (WAY too early in my opinion). Then we were back to shore by noon. Overall it was okay. We saw dolphins!
The crew was nice, but there was a small craft advisory; I wasn't sure if the tour would go on. When the bus picked us up, I figured that they know what they're doing. 90% of the guests became ill due to rough seas. We should not have gone on that tour, and the captain should have known better.
