Dolphin Swim - Pod of dolphins

Description

This tour is run by Dolphin Excursions - they're the best. The crew are mostly marine biologists and can tell you everything about the dolphins. Dolphin Excursions is the boat that the other boats usually follow.

Begin your adventure with complimentary pickup from your Waikiki hotel and travel to the remote west, or leeward, side of the island. When you arrive at the Waianae boat harbor you will be briefed by our friendly and knowledgeable crew. They will help you get oriented with your gear and your surroundings as well as cover safety procedures. No more than 20 people at a time will participate on the excursion to ensure an intimate aquatic experience.

Next, set out in search of wild Hawaiian spinner dolphins along the scenic west coast of Oahu! Keep an eye out for clusters of fins appearing on the water and the aerial acrobatics spinner dolphins are known for. Observe the behaviors of the wild dolphins from aboard the Nai’a I and prepare yourself to get up close and personal with these magnificent mammals.

Then get dropped off in the water equipped with your snorkeling gear and watch as the wild dolphins surround you, swimming below, beside, even up to you. The awake and playful dolphins can be seen casually swimming by and chatting to one-another. Time-permitting, enjoy multiple drops.

Check out this video taken by one of our customers:

During winter months, about December to May, venture farther out to sea to spot the mighty humpback whales as they migrate to Hawaii for the winter. Watch as they breach, slap their tails and more from the vantage point of the maneuverable Nai’a I. Remember to bring your cameras to capture an adventure you will always remember!

Every excursion includes snorkeling at a location off the shore of Makaha Beach at a special spot teeming with marine wildlife. Swim among large schools of tropical fish, green sea turtles, Hawaiian rays, and more!

Complimentary lunch included on every trip.

*Guarantee- Dolphin or Whale sightings are guaranteed. If sightings are not made of one of these species on your tour, receive a voucher for a second tour free. Free transportation not included.
