Overview
Encounter incredible sea creatures on this full-day snorkel tour. Explore the coast by boat and then swim alongside spinner dolphins and green sea turtles. Leave the details to your first-aid certified crew and spend the day playing in the ocean on kayaks and seeing what lives below the surface. Enjoy a fresh meal onboard prepared by your captain and opt for professional photos of your adventure, if you want.
What to Expect

Choose your departure time and then start the day with a hotel pickup (10 hotel locations available). First participate in the E Hoi Mai ceremony with traditional Hawaiian music, prayers, and a flower presentation for a safe journey and to welcome the dolphins.

Follow your guides to see the wild spinner dolphins native to the region. Swim alongside them and watch as they jump and spin in the air and then move to another location to see brightly colored tropical fish and Hawaiian green sea turtles.

A professional photographer captures images of the day, which you can purchase for an additional fee.

Next, play with kayaks, stand-up paddleboards and onboard waterslide, while your captain prepares a fresh lunch. Dine on handmade grilled cheeseburgers served on a purple taro bun (veggie option available).

Finally, return to your departure point.

Great day at sea!

Eventhough we didn't see the dolphins undersea, we saw them at large from the boat. It was a bit dissapointing, but that is nature. The staff were fabelous, good entertainment, it was a great day overall. It was a great family outing! Everyone enjoyed it.

We were able to see dolphins, but they came and went fast. Still, it was a truly amazing moment. I can understand why someone would be upset if they weren't able to see the dolphins, but we were told upfront that it's possible that we...More
