Absolutely amazing! By far my favorite thing we did on the trip! We actually got to swim with Dolphins in the wild. Completely surreal.

This was a wonderful excursion. Our daughter's dream was to hold an octopus- she traveled 5,000 miles in the midst of cancer treatment and Lexi made her dream come true! The whole experience was top notch- we swam with dolphins and sea turtles and the pictures were amazing. Memories to last a life time. Thank you.

Excellent tour! Boat crew and staff were wonderful. We were in the water with dolphins swimming by within a few feet. Saw a whale, sea turtles and lots of fish. Highly recommended. Only down side was the web site information and email confirmation stated departure at 7. That actually meant departure from the pier not from the hotel. The driver called at 5 to pick us up and kindly waited 15 minutes for us to scramble together. Glad we did. A very memorable experience!

I would rate this higher than five stars if possible. We were first time snorkelers. The captain, marine biologist and photographer were very knowledgeable and helpful. We saw spinner Dolphins, false killer whale Dolphins, turtles and a barracuda along with other marine life. If we come to Oahu again, I would definitely do this tour again.

Fantastic day. Even if you wake up early, seeing the dolphins, sea turtles and other sea life is an awesome experience!

We saw baby dolphins which were less than a week old and multiple sea turtles.

Very friendly staff

good to go to the early session as more likely to see dolphins before they sleep - the guides were knowledgeable helpful and friendly.. we saw about 50 dolphins and were lucky to have them swim right beneath us.. worth getting up at 430am for, as you are then back at your hotel by midday

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

Awesome! Taymar was very informative, and our group saw so many wild dolphins and turtles that day. Swimming with them is an unforgettable experience. Wish I could visit when I could watch the whales as well. The breakfast burrito was superb as well.
