The three ladies who took us out that morning were wonderful! One of the best days of our trip was spent on this boat! There were so many dolphins and whales that morning that I was in heaven! Such an incredible experience and I recommend it to everyone!!
If you are in Waikiki and thinking about doing this tour, no hold it, if you are in Waikiki book this tour now!
It starts by getting picked up at about 5:30 there is a later tour and then driven about an hour north west of Waikiki. After a quick check in, which includes choosing you lunch dont be shy Spinners food is fantastic you are soon heading off on the water.
Our first encounter with the whales was via the on board hydrophone which allowed us to hear these giants of the sea sing to each other. Not too long after this we were amazed with several whales breaching and breathing within meters of the boat!
After watching the whales pass us by, we then made our way to the pod of spinner dolphins. We donned our snorkelling gear and slipped into the water and got up close and personal with these extraordinary creatures. We spent at least 30 minutes snorkelling with them, and there must have been around 100 dolphins around us. Unbelievable!
Soon after the dolphin encounter we were in the water with some green sea turtles which capped off our snorkelling adventure. To our surprise, on the way back to the harbour we noticed there were dolphins riding the bow and wake of the boat. It was as if they were saying good bye to us!
The all-female crew were very knowledgeable and professional in all aspects of the tour.
We rate this as one of the best tours on Oahu
Great tour! Got to see dolphins, turtles, and whales! The staff is friendly and helpful as well!
it was so great! We got to see so many whales today I really did lose count. We saw so may spinner dolphins also. The team including Tamar were fantastic. Special thanks to the lovely woman who rescheduled my booking too. It was so much appreciated and it really was the highlight of my trip.
SO much better than we expected! The girls who run the tour are absolutely sweethearts and total pros! We snorkeled with a HUGE pod of spinner dolphins about 200 of them I think, turtles, beautiful fish and got some amazing photos from the photographer on the trip with us.
You must do this tour!
My parents and their friends went on this tour which was a gift from me. While I was not there in person, they called me to tell me that the tour was one of the highlights of their vacation. They saw many dolphins, sea turtles and colorful fish. The guides were well informed and shared many interesting facts about sea life. They spent 3 hours on the ocean which was plenty of time to relax and observe the marine life.
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.
It was our favorite day on our trip. Great crew, lunch was a nice bonus at the end. Good equipent, well run. Saw Dolphins, sea turtles, fish and EVEN an endangered Seal swam with us!
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
This was the best part of our vacation. The tour guides and boat driver were friendly, fun, and made the experience fantastic.

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 !!!!
