What You Can Expect

Waianae Coast Snorkel Cruise with Dolphin and Seasonal Whale Watching from Oahu

Swimming with Spinner Dolphins

Following pickup from your Waikiki hotel, transfer to the Waianae Harbor to board your boat. 

Find a spot in the sun or shade and enjoy the ride as you sail up the picturesque Waianae Coast. Watch for spinner dolphins playing and jumping in the waves, and in the winter months (January through March), keep an eye out for the migrating majestic humpback whales. 

Your captain will stop at a calm, shallow spot for snorkeling. Don your mask and snorkel gear and jump in, asking your crew for any tips or instructions if you need them. Float in the tropical waters and watch as schools of tropical fish swim through the beautiful coral reefs. 

After 3 hours on the boat, return to the Waianae Harbor for a filling lunch that includes sandwiches and hot dishes; vegetarian options are available, and all meals come with a choice of beverage.

At the end of the day, board a vehicle for drop-off at your Waikiki hotel.

Up close and personal with whales, dolphins and sea turtles. very personal and fun staff. The day itself was not as dolphin-packed as the last one, but that's not the tour company's fault but we had more whales. Nice very fast boat. very well organized. I live here and it's incredibly worth it to go on this tour, unforgettable.

We joined the cruise as a family of four 2 kids, 8yo and 10yo and all four of us had an amazing time. We would highly recommend this cruise. The staff were really knowledgeable and really friendly and accommodating. They paid attention the kids to ensure they were getting the most out of the experience. Everything was very relaxed. The equipment was all good. The boat was smaller and faster than other cruises we saw going around the same time, for me this was great as I felt we were a lot closer to what we were seeing in the water. We saw lots of whales and bottlenose dolphins. We were in the water with spinner dolphins although they didn't come too close. We were in the water with Green Back Turtles and loads of tropical fish. And the bonus, as the boat was preparing to leave a snorkelling spot we were paid a visit by an inquisitive, but apparently very rare, Monk Seal.

Absolutely perfect! The crew was great, very knowledgeable and skilled. We saw turtles, whales tails only but it was still amazing and two species of dolphins. I would absolutely recommend them and use them again.

Great activity! Whales, dolphins, and sea turtles! Amazing crew. Photographer was happy to do special pics. Included lunch at the cafe following the trip was really good. We ordered our food before we left and it was ready when we returned.

We saw HUNDREDS of dolphins, two wales, a sea turtle, and lots of tropical fish. TAKE ANTI-NAUSEA MEDS. I got very sea sick, but never did before this tour. It was SO AMAZING, it was still worth it! The guides are awesome, Especially Emanuelle. Paulfin Photography takes great photos that you buy.
