This tour was a lot of fun. The guides were great and very knowledgeable. I would recommend that you purchase the photos. During the tour, the photographer was able to get some fun pictures of us in the water. While the staff worked hard to give us a great experience, they were also respectful of the sea life. I felt...

Mahalo for your review! Respect for sealife in all forms is very important to all of us here at Dolphin Excursions. We do as the sea life permits us to do. We are in their house, at their party and we will await an invitation to dance before leaping up and engaging. ;) Lisa More

Me and my partner went on the excursion in March 2014. Highly recommended.. The staff were fun and laid back and were very knowledgeable. Would definitely go again if I went back. Would recommend paying to get the professional photos and would have got in more if I knew how good they were. Thanks

Mahalo Christie M for your kind words about our tour and good mention about sea sickness. Sea sickness strikes with out notice. Does not matter what the conditions are, can be super still and glassy and your body may still react negatively to being on a boat. When in doubt like Christie said, take preventative measures at least one hour... More

Forget the rest, this is the coolest thing to do in Oahu. We did four tours for our trip and by far this is the best one. So much so that we are talking about doing it again next time we go. Easy hotel pick up, relax but professional guides, non rushed, and got to see everything they promised. And... More

If your thinking about swimming with the Dolphins in the Wild, this is the tour to do! Hotel pick up available and was a easy, hassle free booking and service.

I have always wanted to swim with the dolphins but not in captivity. Snorkelling in the ocean was the perfect experience. We had an all female crew of whom Savannah and Jenna were AWESOME!!

Big mahalo for your review. As stated, we must cater to nature. The order in which we snorkel and what we snorkel with tour vary from day to day and are customized to the animal's behavior. However, it is our goal to get you out there on the water with as many critters as we can. :) Lisa More

Very excited to be out on a boat and in the water in Hawaii. We saw many sea turtles and a pod of dolphins. We were not able to swim with them because they were in distress but we followed them and saw baby dolphins next to their mama. It was a pretty awesome experience. The Captain Jenna was disappointed... More

I would recommend Dolphin Excursions to anyone. The crew was extremely nice, helpful, and knowledgeable. We took our 5 year son and he loved it. Lunch is included with the package which you will be hungry after the trip.

The staff were amazing, friendly, funny and knowledgeable. The trip was fun we caught up with the dolphins 3 times and I was able to get some pictures and videos. When the dolphins went on their way the captain took us to a great snorkeling spot for us to play. Do the morning trip, you're more likely to see the... More
