This was a terrific real dolphin swim/snorkel tour to do! Though it took as an hour to get there from Waikiki, it was definitely worth it. The crew was really good; after you get your snorkel gear they tell you the rules, explained what to do/expect, who can swim/can't swim/snorkel, etc. They do the same on the boat before you... More

This was an extra ordinary experience made possible by the exceptional crew! We were not rushed, and they made sure that everyone had a great dolphin experience! I didn't expect that we'll be swimming that close to dolphins and sea turtle in their natural habitat. My whole family had a great time!

The guide Mandy was very friendly and knowledgable and respectful to the health of the dolphins. The photographer Paul took... More

We are 6 sisters ranging in age from 46-61. My sister Sharon just turned 60 and wanted to experience dolphins in their own environment. We were met by Emanuelle, Jenna the captain of the Zodiac boat, and Paul, the professional photographer. Terrific people who put us at ease immediately. We saw many pods of dolphins up close to the boat... More

Dolphin Excursions was, by far, the highlight of our trip to Hawaii in April 2015. The program is top notch and run by professionals (all of whom were women for our trip!!). I had questions when booking our reservation and received an answer back on the same night . We were the first tour of the day, which made of... More

This tour was my favorite. I will do it again next time I visit Oahu. Staff is friendly and experienced. I was lowered off the boat into the middle of a pod of dolphins. Was incredible!!! They definitely want you to have an amazing experience. After swimming with the dolphins and snorkeling with turtles they feed you lunch. Was a... More

I bring people on Hawaii Spiritual Retreats and was looking for a good company to provide snorkeling with dolphins. I was very happy with Dolphin Excursions on O'ahu. The crew went above and beyond to ensure a special experience. Captain Jenna took us out on calm seas at 7.00am to a remote location to find the pod of Spinner Dolphins... More

We had a family group of 6. They took us to drop with the dolphins 3 times, found a turtle and great snorkeling! Was a great trip for the day. Highly recommend this group.

The staff were very nice and energetic. I saw dolphins and turtles the first time in water. Apply enough sun-block beforehand though, I got a little sunburn. The drive to the dock from Waikiki was quite a journey. The 3-hour was for activity, better give enough time for travel and be flexible about the activities before and after.

we had a family group of 7 and it was perfect for us. Elizabeth taught the adults and kids a lot. My husband left his rash guard on the boat and Captain Downey brought it back to us at the Aulani! What a guy
