Did the 7am trip on April 11th/14 with the fantastic crew: Captain Jenna, Ashley the guide and Jim the photographer. We had calm waters and encountered a curious pod of dolphins about 5 minutes into the trip (we know this doesn't happen all the time, so close to shore, but hey, we were lucky). For that reason the trip was... More

Our family made it's first trip in 1998 with Victor at the helm in the black zodiac. At first I wasn't sure about the zodiac. While I was leaning over the bow watching a group of spinner dolphins bow riding the boat, I was hooked. It was a great day that included whales along side. I brought friends back in... More

We were tossing up whether or not to go on this trip, as we could only make time to go on our last day in Hawaii. And I'm so glad we did, as this was a lifetime experience. It's always been a dream to dive with wild dolphins, and I'm still in shock that we got to do it! The... More

I had a day with Dolphin Excursions in late March and after mediocre water clarity in other parts of Hawaii I was blown away by the crystal clear blue water on this trip. We could see the bottom at 30 + feet! The team were knowledgeable, down to earth and realistic about setting expectations, which were quickly exceeded. We were... More

We had a great cruise last week with our entire family. We saw numerous pods of dolphins and even 4 humpback whales in the morning portion of the cruise. In the afternoon with the snorkeling we saw some interesting fish as well as two sea turtles that surfaced less than 3 feet away from my daughter and I. the crew... More

Took the dolphin excursion with two friends. A trip on the ocean is never predictable and there were not a lot of spinner dolphins that day but the Humpback whales put on an incredible show and we saw a bottle-nosed dolphin. Our guide and captain were young women truly enthusiastic and knowledgeable about ocean life, great observers and ready to... More

My group of 4 adults went on this tour on March 11th in the morning. Lexie was our captain, Jim the photographer, and I can't remember the other woman's name. They were really clear with safety procedures and how to use equipment. Right from the beginning Lexie told us what the expect and told us not to have unrealistic expectations.... More

Friendly staff! It was a small boat which made it very fun and one on one. Got to swim with sea turtles and some beautiful fish, as well as got to watch wales dancing almost the whole time we were out there. We didn't see any dolphins this time, but they gave us vouchers for 2 FREE excursions next time!... More

What a great experience! We opted for the pick-up from Waikiki and it was convenient and on-time. Check in was efficient and we were soon underway. The crew was awesome, and obviously loves what they do. We saw tons of dolphins and the crew was not only informative, but extremely respectful of the dolphins as well. We also had a... More

It started off slow and we were beginning to think no dolphins would come so we hopped out to snorkel around. There were tons of fish And turtles to check out while we waited and behold the dolphin pods came right to us. It was amazing. The crew does a great job of dropping you right in their path so...
