Swimming with the Dolphins with the Adventure X crew was so amazing! The whole experience from booking to the final speed boat ride to end the day was perfect. The crew is really into the trips and making it a great experience for all aboard.

Fantastic tour!! We took our 5 year old on the wild dolphin/ sea turtle adventure and my expectations were far exceeded. We saw dozens of dolphins, they swam very close to the boat. We were able to get into the water with them 3 times and swim with them which was surreal and incredible! The 2nd part of the tour... More

I love the crew of Adventure X. I have down the dolphin trip on two different trips. The experience is not consistent when you are dealing with open ocean conditions. The first time I had an amazing experience swimming with pods of Dolphins in clear water with great visibility. The second time it was thrilling to see the Dolphins from... More

Tessa, Kalsey and Captain Casey are awesome! I would highly recommend this trip. They were great with our 7 year old daughter and made sure they got her maximum dolphin exposure! Not only did we see lots of Dolphins and their babies flipping and spinning but we swam with them and and went to a turtle cleaning station. If you... More

Ok, so although I managed to fracture my middle toe in 2 places by clumsily slipping on the only part of boat (steel hatch) without rubber flooring, this was an amazing trip. I'll explain why....family of 4, we were able to experience 3 snorkel dives together with the Dolphins safely nearby us. A beautiful scene to witness! The crew was... More

We did the trip with our teenage daughter and got to swim 4 times with dolphins and then went to a reef to see turtles (and some people saw rays as well). It's a 3 hour trip all in on a smallish boat but well worth it as long as yoou don't easily get seasick

Amazing crew! Incredible dolphin swims and terrific snorkeling! Great for all ages! A must do! Captain Casey, Tess and Amy were great with the kids. They were extremely patient and accommodating. This was by far one of the highlights of our family trip to the Big Island.

I took two trips with this group. The first was an amazing Fourth of July firework celebration just off the Mauna Kea Hotel. The boat anchored in the bay and it felt like we were almost inside the show. Then we spent some time stargazing with some refreshing beverages and delicious nibbles before heading back to our starting point. The... More

First of all this was an amazing tour!!! Captain Casey and his crew were great! The only reason for the four stars is because the dolphins were a little bit uncooperative. By all means, this was not Capt. Casey's fault. We did try several times to join the pod of resident Spinner Dolphins but every time we entered the water,... More

This was the perfect trip. The boat crew was fabulous. We saw a lot of dolphins and got to swim with the flock. At the end you snorkel on a reef and hopefully see turtles. We did. A perfect half day. Highly recommend this excursion.
