This is the real deal... spinner dolphins in their natural habitat. We went on the afternoon tour and were lucky enough to find a pool of dolphins about a half hour from the marina. Our captain/guides were very knowledgeable and explained how to use the equipment and share the water with the sea life. It was an amazing experience, quietly... More

We did the mid morning trip and had a great time and was one of the highlights of our trip, the girls that took us out were very professional and great to talk to. Great to see that they have a passion for the marine life and genuinely love being out there . This is a must do ...

Our group had a great time. The highlight was actually unexpected - the dolphin sightings and swimming near them was great and snorkeling was really cool - but we got to see awesome views of whales breaching. Our whale watching expedition later in the trip got cancelled due to high winds so looking back we were so thankful to our... More

I call this Ohana ( family ) because there were 15 in our group and 5 others that became Ohana very fast. Capt Jenna, Mandy and Paul the photographer not only put us on whales to watch but we found the spinner dolphins and watched them as they jumped in the air and swam along the boat. The snorkeling spot... More

This dolphin adventure is for you if you want to experience dolphins and turtles in their natural habitat while respecting the environment in which they live. The crew on our excursion was terrific.

Tip do the morning trip, sun is just rising, seas seem gentler, a nice freshness in the air and the sunlight against the mountain backdrop is amazing for photo opportunities and do purchase a disposable waterproof camera at reception (@ $10 who can complain) After going through reception we were treated with coffee and something light to eat and a...

First, no one can promise that you will swim with dolphins... they're wild and don't just show up on command. That said, DID WE SWIM WITH DOLPHINS! Dolphin Excursions is amazing! We did the early tour... Pick up was at 5:55 am. Jessica, our driver and part of the crew, was super sweet. You'll be on the west shore which... More

We had a great time, saw lots of dolphins and swam with a pod of about 80, also saw lots of fish, some turtles and even a Humpback whale. The boat ride was fun (fast so no seasickness) and the crew were fantastic. Safety and administration great. Highly recommend this group.
