Wow, what a fantastic experience! Swimming with dolphins, snorkeling and seeing turtles and tropical fish was amazing. The tour guides and staff were really knowledgable and passionate about what they do which made the experience even better. I'd highly recommend this to anyone visiting Oahu!

My 12 yr old and I had an amazing time. We got to see a huge pod of spinner dolphins and even a chance to swim with bottlenose dolphins. The snorkeling was great fun and the sea turtles were very cool. It was a fantastic crew that were super friendly and welcoming. I would highly recommend this company over the... More

Swimming with dolphins was never at the top of my list, yet a friend arranged this and spoke highly of the experience. In this order, I was impressed: 1) upon arrival at the place, we were hungry. The cafe cooked an awesome breakfast burrito! I had it with linguica. Totally yummy. 2) the gals who took us out know their... More

Our family of 4 ranked this as their favorite excursion while in Oahu. Jen, Lexi, and Tamar were a wonderful crew. They were very knowledgeable, respectful of the wildlife, and fun to be with. We saw 4 pods of spinner dolphins and many of them swam around us. In addition to swimming with the dolphins, the kids were able to... More

I normally do not write reviews but I had to for this group. It's a small boat with a small group they have very knowledgeable and friendly staff. We saw, and swam with, dozens of dolphins several sea turtles and stingray. The highlight of the trip for my son and I was that the underwater photographer found an octopus and... More

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.
