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.

We did spot the dolphins, but were not able to get into the water with them. It was too windy and choppy. My recommendation would be to check the weather forecast and either reschedule or cancel if it is going to be windy. It was nice seeing dolphins in the wild, but the trip ended up being an expensive three... More

I loved this opportunity to swim with wild dolphins off the Kahola coast. We got very close to the dolphins and were able to see them playing in the ocean. I have done similar activities many times at different destinations, and I would have to say that the crew on the boat was one of the most fun, enthusiastic and... More

Before today, 'swimming with the dolphins' to me, meant choreographed routines with dolphins in captivity. I had never heard of swimming with dolphins in the wild. I had no idea what I was missing. At the start of our adventure, our group was greeted by an amazing crew - Captain Casey, Riley and Kelsie - with fresh baked treats and... More

Captain Casey riley and kelsie made our experience a great time in addition to the other families. They had excellent baked goods pineapples and the best canned coke in kona Hawaii. They were helpful to our older mother and all of us new to the boat. It was fun riding the tube alongside the water. Excellent music and vibe.
