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
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.
Our driver/tour guide/life guard Jess was on time, friendly and fun. Jen the boat operator was very knowledgeable, friendly and did a great job trying to find the right spots for us to see and swim with the dolphins, turtles and fish. Paul the photographer was nice, made sure he got great photos and also helped us find the fish, turtles and dolphins. We brought our 5yo and 8yo with us and they had an outstanding time. We would for sure do this trip again if we could.
This was the highlight of my trip to Hawaii! About 20 mins after we got on the boat we were in the water surrounded by Spinner Dolphins. We went to a reef where we saw turtles, other fish, and even HELD an octopus!! We even got to swim with spotted Dolphins in 3000 ft of water! AWESOME EXPERIENCE!!!
We would definitely do this again, loved the fact that it was a small group tour, the crew where awesome very friendly and professional they knew where the best spots are to snorkel with the dolphins and turtles!! Lunch was great, was our most memorable adventure in Hawaii
This tour was awesome!!!! Staff were well friendly, whales and dolphins absolutely stunning!!! Would do it again myself.
Great snorkel cruise. We saw bottle-neck and spinner dolphins, a green sea turtle, and numerous beautiful fish. The two guides were great and the lunch was simple, but tasty and beat the food at the Luau we attended.
This was such an amazing adventure. We swam with spinner dolphins for over an hour on our trip and also saw and swam with 4 sea turtles. The crew was awesome and very knowledgeable about the dolphins and sea life. I will do this trip again the next time we are in Hawaii!
Rose ,lex, and savannah were awesome!!! This was the most amazing experience ! Saw Dolphins turtles an a whole bunch of other critters . Once in a lifetime must do ..... Saw all kinds of size Dolphins !!! This adventure was the Best by far hands down!!!!! AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING !!!!
This was the most amazing thing we have ever done! Jenna, Rose ans Paul were a fantastic crew! We would do it again in a heartbeat!
This was an awesome experience. The crew was amazing at finding the whales and dolphins. Paul the photographer was easy to be around and you forgot that he was there taking pictures. We saw lots of whales, turtles, fish but swimming with the Dolphins was amazing. Definitely a highlight of our trip. We have already recommended this excursion to others in our condo as a must do on their holiday. Thank you Jen, Rose, Jess and Paul for a fabulous experience.
Jessica picked us up and we started on a day of adventure like nothing I have ever done before. Jenna, our boat Captain, went above and beyond what she should have! Paul, our photographer was very friendly and active! All I can say is book this tour! We saw everything they said and more! Thx!!
Would recommend this company
Weather was jot in outside for our trip by the girls made it worth while we even got a return free voucher due to weather
It was beautiful. The staff was very friendly and went out of their way to give everyone chances to get in the water and look for wildlife. There were not a lot of good choices for lunch. All in all, I would highly recommend this tour.
Very fun tour. Totally worth doing. Lots of good stuff. The boat is very fast and fun and we got lucky and saw pilot whales. Definitely worth doing this one if you want some good quality snorkeling.
The whole experience was worth it.
I would do it again.
I will recommend this tour.
The most amazing tour!! The captain and the deck hand were marine biologists.. Would do this tour again in a heartbeat!
We had an amazing day! Highly recommend this tour for anyone who likes to snorkel. The crew was super friendly and knowledgeable. And we were lucky enough to find a pod of spinner dolphins about a half hour from the marina. This is the real deal...Swimming with dolphins in their natural habitat!!! I also recommend buying the photos from the professional photographer on board. He took GREAT underwater pictures that we'll enjoy for years. Thanks Dolphin Excursions for a memorable experience!
We had a great time! My daughter is 11 and even though she was the only minor on board the crew made it fun and safe. The crew was friendly, fun and knowledgeable. If there was any criticism I think it would be the transportation to the dock. The van was a little small and claustrophobic. I was in the far back corner. It made the 1 hour drive seem much longer. But hey, once we got there it was awesome! We saw a mother whale and her calf, dolphins, turtles and a bunch of fish. Overall it was very successful
We had a wonderful time! The staff was great! Very knowledgable, friendlly and energetic. Even though it was the end of whale season in Oahu we still saw a few whales. The best part was swimming with a pod of dolphins in their own habitat. It was amazing! They have a photographer on board and I would definitely sign up to buy her pictures. It is one flat rate and definitely worth it.

BEST day ever in paradise! The boat operators were knowledgeable about the environment and kept in found the best places to see whales and dolphins. It was fun as well! Several people on the tour were doing it for the second and third time. I would go again as well. I pitied the folks on the catamarans who only had food and drink and were missing out on the open ocean.
This trip was amazing! We had extrodinary luck with whale sightings and that was beyond belief. But what truly made it memorable was the captain and crew. They are knowledgable, professional and fun. They are very respectful of the animals and took time to educate us as well as show us a great time. We had severe weather issues the week we were there and the office staff was very flexible with us and allowed us to book another day. I would strongly suggest this tour and can't wait for my next trip to Oahu so I can go on this trip again!
