My husband and I picked this activity for our honeymoon and boy were we impressed! The ladies at Dolphin Excursions are not only friendly, helpful, and passionate, but trained marine biologists and naturalists. It was so wonderful to chat with these women about their marine experiences, and we quickly bonded. They thoroughly knew the local marine life and gave us... More

I would recommend to anyone who wants to experience something wonderful. Very well organized attraction. Worth every penny! The captain did everything that we had the opportunity to swim among dolphins. The crew was friendly and very helpful.

This experience was amazing!!! I had always dreamed of swimming with Dolphins and this experience was exactly what I had hoped for!! On 3 different swims in the single experience, I was right next to the Dolphins as they were swimming along. They are beautiful creatures and this was a blast. The crew (especially Mandy) was super helpful and informative... More

Five trips to Hawaii and five snorkel trips -- Dolphin Excursions left the rest in their wake as this was an amazing trip. This trip is for folks who really want to snorkel with spinner dolphins, sea turtles and schools of beautiful fish. It is not for folks who want a gentle cruise complete with lunch and alcohol on board.... More

We are locals and got a local's rate, so if you live in the state of Hawaii, ask about the discount (a little under $300 for 2 adult/1 kid). Free parking if you self-drive. Go on the first tour as it's cooler and water is calmer. Bathrooms 3 stalls, a bit yucky but big enough to change. Spinner's Cafe to... More

What a day! this is right up there on my most memorable experiences in life. We took my 8 year old daughter with us as a surprise. The dolphins swam right next to her and she was just totally blown away. We also saw Sea Turtles and beautiful fish when we went snorkeling. The team were amazing, so friendly, helpful... More

I loved swimming with the dolphins. They are beautiful creatures and something I wanted to do for a long time. Samantha was our host and she was very positive and explained very clearly how to interact with the dolphins. I definitely will do it again. Highlight of my trip.

Words truly cannot express how fantastic this tour is. The staff are incredibly knowledgeable and friendly. What particularly impressed me was their respect for the animals. That came first and foremost. I'd also highly recommend getting the photography package. Good shots and leaves you free to play and explore.
