From the moment you see their silvery backs appear in the cobalt waters, to the moment you're swimming right alongside and hearing their high pitched clicks, there's an enchanting rush of tropical adrenaline that accompanies swimming with dolphins. Here off the Kona coast of the Big Island, Hawaiian Spinner dolphins are year round residents that ply the volcanic shore, and this tour offers local, professional captains who know where to look to find them. In addition to watching and swimming with dolphins, you'll also snorkel with tropical fish in some of Hawaii's clearest water, before returning back to shore in Kona with an experience you'll never forget.

Swimming with wild dolphins - what more is there to say? A lot! Our guide, Troy, and boat captain whose name I can't remember, were super friendly, funny and appropriately concerned with both our experience and our safety. We were dropped three times, and saw dolphins streaming by each time. The reef snorkle was fantastic, too, as was the snack advertised, which was actually a large tray of three kinds of croissant sandwiches. Lots of beverages and salty and sweet snacks were offered throughout. We'd do this again if ever back in Kona.

Captain Tim and crew were awesome! Our family with young kids enjoyed our tour on our first day in Hawai'i and they exceeded expectations. We saw Spinner dolphins, a ray, countless fish and even a couple rare whales. Better yet Tim laid down a background history overview of Hawai'i and some cultural concepts that helped us navigate some learning for the rest of our week.
Comfort and safety were emphasized but fun and learning were the goals.

My family loved this tour a lot. We saw lot of dolphines and then moved to captain cook and snorkled there for about 30minutes. Snorkling at captaun cook was a suprise bonus that I did not expected. Captain Tim was very kind and informative and Bradly was so nice as well. This tour was a hightlight of my trip to Kona.

The tour was so fun! The hosts were funny and friendly. The day was perfect and we saw lots of dolphins. They got really close to us and some of them even did flips right in front of us! It was an experience I'll never forget! We also got to swim with a turtle at another reef. I highly recommend it!
