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!
I've been on many of these cruises over the years. The crew on this trip was exceptional!
Super friendly, very knowledgeable (marine biologists!!!)
I learned a lot from them and we had the most incredible morning!!
Awesome. It was a tiny boat with a very friendly and informative crew. We saw three humpback whales surface and dive. We saw tons of dolphins swim by and also got to swim with sea turtles in crystal clear water. We all agreed we would do it again.
Amazing, awesome, would do it again! Dolphin Excursions is a great company, knowledgeable, helpful, and good with people of all ages.
Definitely recommend, our daughter even got to hold an octopus that was almost as big as she was, awesome experience
Go on this
What an adventure. Our guide, Mandy, made sure that we saw spinner dolphins, both from the boat and from the water, so we did swim with dolphins.
We snorkelled for about an hour and photos were taken by Perrin for us to buy. Some folk saw turtles, but I didn't, though I have since seen the photos.
We got a bit burnt on our backs from the snorkelling, so make sure you smother on the sun screen or wear a vest.
As first time snorkelers, this was a real highlight of our holiday.
This excursion was amazing! We saw 6 bottle nosed dolphins, swam with a pod of about 100 spinner dolphins, a sting ray, 6 sea turtles, held a star fish, and saw plenty of fish! Lex and Ali were awesome! It was worth every penny, and would do it again in a heart beat!
It was a fantastic day. The staff were all very knowledgeable and friendly. We saw whales, swam with a pod of dolphins, saw a sea turtle and many, many fish and even got to hold a baby octopus. The photos that the photographer took were great and we recveived the disc a week after we came home. We will definitely do this again when we next visit.
If I could give them 10 stars I would! Worth every penny spent. Our captain, deck hand and photographer enhanced and made the excursion so much fun. When asked today what was the favorite thing we did in Hawaii my entire family said it was THIS. Only suggestion goes to viator the duration is 3 hrs
