What You Can Expect

Waianae Coast Snorkel Cruise with Dolphin and Seasonal Whale Watching from Oahu

Swimming with Spinner Dolphins

Following pickup from your Waikiki hotel, transfer to the Waianae Harbor to board your boat. 

Find a spot in the sun or shade and enjoy the ride as you sail up the picturesque Waianae Coast. Watch for spinner dolphins playing and jumping in the waves, and in the winter months (January through March), keep an eye out for the migrating majestic humpback whales. 

Your captain will stop at a calm, shallow spot for snorkeling. Don your mask and snorkel gear and jump in, asking your crew for any tips or instructions if you need them. Float in the tropical waters and watch as schools of tropical fish swim through the beautiful coral reefs. 

After 3 hours on the boat, return to the Waianae Harbor for a filling lunch that includes sandwiches and hot dishes; vegetarian options are available, and all meals come with a choice of beverage.

At the end of the day, board a vehicle for drop-off at your Waikiki hotel.

The tour was one if the best things we did during our time on the islands. The staff were remarkable and went above and beyond, to ensure everyone in our group had a delightful time, saw the dolphins, and left with a smile on their face. I highly recommend this tour.

Amazing! We saw the 30 dolphins at one time, and two huge turtles. I recommend paying for the photographer that's provided by the company and let her know before the trip begins. She'll get really great photos of you and also offers a bonus album as well. We had an amazing time!

Great trip we saw lots of the larger dolphins but missed the spinner ones. They gave us a voucher for a return trip which unfortunately we wont be able to use it. Lovely guides and good value

Awesome!!! What an amazing day we had! Mandy and Jenna were great company, love what they do and love sharing their knowledge and passion with their guests. We were lucky enough to spot whales even though whale season had officially ended a couple of weeks before our tour - thankfully nobody told the whales that! Then it was time to swim with the Spinner Dolphins - what a special moment! Even one of the babies put on a show for us. Lunch was delicious and the entire day was really special. Would recommend taking a seasickness tablet though if you are prone to feeling a bit sick because there is a fair bit of sitting still in the boat and that's what always gets to me. Loved every minute of this trip! Thanks, girls!

We saw everything we were supposed to, and even had a rare chance to be in the water with a whale! They made sure that I would see a turtle by nearly having me get out so close I could have ridden it! The dolphins were everywhere. A really cool adventure! The Tour people were really nice, knowledgable, and enthusiastic. I highly recommend it!

Every single person from the driver, Alena, to the lady who helped with the equipment were fantastic! They were friendly and fun. The day was perfect. They made sure we saw dolphins and turtles. If you go consider getting the professional pictures by Nicky. Her pictures, especially underwater, are amazing. As more mature people, every member of the crew checked regularly to make sure that my friend and I were okay. They seemed aware of every person from kids to the oldest and their safety as well as the safety of the marine animals. This crew was very professional, yet friendly and fun. We laughed, we swam, we saw amazing animals, and I wish the tour had never ended!
