One word...Dynamite! Simply an amazing experience. Firstly, the crew were amazing, knowledgeable and friendly. Secondly, we saw and swam with so much amazing marine life. We saw three pods of spinner dolphins (swam with 2) and one huge pod of spotted dolphins (also swam with them). In addition to seeing the guaranteed dolphins, we also stopped at a great snorkeling...

This trip deserves 5 stars. Very nice staff. We had plenty of time to swim with dolphins, turtles and take photos with an octopus. The photographer Jim Ward made wonderful photos and I highly recommend buying them. The only down point was Spinners Café. The food was not so good and the restaurant looks really dirty. Have your breakfast in... More

Driving from Honolulu was a bit of a drive, but well worth it! As with all wildlife activities there are no guarantees you'll see anything. Lucky for us we saw a lot! We took the morning tour (first of the day) and at first didn't spot any dolphins. Instead we hopped out and snorkeled with a half dozen or so... More

We went there on last Saturday early morning. The staffs are friendly and had good knowledge about Spinner dolphins. We saw about 60 of them in the ocean! I was able to take a good close picture and video of group dolphins swimming together. It was amazing experience seeing natural wild animal in the water than seeing at captive tank.... More

We had the most exhilarating experience of my life in this excursion. We saw dolphins put on a show for us when we were on the boat and then snorkeled to see pods of them under sea. The sea turtles were also awesome. I would definitely recommend this tour for people who visit Oahu.

We went out for the 10:30 time. The guide found spinner dolphins within 5 minutes of taking us out. They were very good at helping my 6 year old get his snorkel gear on and adjusted. We swam with the dolphins right below us. Next we went to another location. We saw fish and a sea turtle. Because she had... More

There are several snorkeling options on Oahu, but this one is worth it. It's out in Waianae, so leave early if your staying around Waikiki. I would also pack sun screen and Bonine (non-droawsy sea sickness pills) - as someone who sails, I cannot say enough about how worthwhile one or two Bonine will be beforehand. There's always someone who... More

This was one of the biggest highlights of our vacation. It started with Mandy, Jen & Jim making it a wonderful adventure. We got to be close to dolphins and tropical fish, plus the octopus was exciting. Jim took fantastic pictures (I strongly suggest that you buy the package). Jen & Mandy took us out and we saw the spotted... More

We had the greatest time on this excursion! Life changing experience. This is a must for anyone visiting Hawaii! We found a large pod of dolphins fairly quickly, and after getting in the water the dolphins seemed to engage our presence. We got dropped into the water to swim with the dolphins 3 times, and each time we got pretty... More
