I would like to recommend this excursion to everyone who visits Hawaii. It was incredible. We had to be up at 4.30am, to which we all thought was a terrible idea. Our driver picked us up at 5.00 am sharp and once inside she told us to settle back into sleep as it would take about 3/4 hour to get... More

We went with a large group, there were seven of us total. The general consensus was that for the price we paid, it was expensive for what we got to do. The dolphins were actually sleeping, which was a big letdown because we were expecting them to be more playful. This is fine, obviously the dolphins have to sleep, but... More

It was always a dream of mine to swim with dolphins and it was important that the dolphins I swam with were not in captivity. I was so so SO happy that I found Dolphin Excursions. They pick you up from your hotel, take you on the boat, tell you interesting facts about the dolphins, let you swim with them,... More

We were very impressed with the professionalism and friendliness of the crew. In the end we were able to do four drops, the first looking at sea turtles and the last three with dolphins. It was an amazing experience for the whole family. The only down side was that, due to the small size of the boat, our three boys... More

Lets start with the negatives, I personally thought it was expensive for the time we experienced in the water. We went during the time a huricane was expected so it was rainy and windy. The water was very warm over all. The dolphins were amazing but only capture a couple pictures since they would disappear and swim away. The snorkel... More

My family took this trip today and it was brilliant from the phone booking, bus pick up and tour itself. We were picked up a few minutes early by a very friendly driver who also happened to be the deck hand on the trip. Check in was smooth and easy and ever so friendly. The trip itself was fantastic!

Thought it would just be touristy, but it was an incredible experience! We have never swam with dolphins before and really didn't this time--the dolphins swim with you. From getting equipment to eating the wonderful meal (included in excursion price) provided afterwards, everything was perfect. Capt Jenna and her crew were interesting and so focused on getting us all the... More

This is a must do in Hawaii. The whole trip was great. We had just come from Tahiti and had swim with the shark there so we just thought we may as well do this. It's the best thing we have every done in Hawaii. The staff are great and it's like nothing we have done before. We have swim... More
