My husband and I booked this adventure before anything else based on the reviews and let me tell you, it did not disappoint! I was in shock at how easy it was for Capt. Ray to find the dolphins. It was even better that he tried to keep us from other boats where they were packed to capacity with people.... More

Wow! What an amazing day with Capt. Ray, Shelly and the Shogun boat! It was worth the minimally extra cost to have a small group and personal service. Shelly was really knowledgeable about the ocean and all the creatures we came across, and she was gentle and respectful with the dolphins....stewarding all of us into really great experiences with the...

Aloha, Jill, Thank you so much for choosing OneLoveOneSpirit as a birthday gift for your husband, Scott. We absolutely love sharing celebrations! I think the water community must have heard it was a birthday, because they all turned out to help you celebrate! It was truly an unusual and amazing day. And yes, the whale shark was the star.

When you see a few other boats packed at max capacity - you'll be even more glad you chose this 'shared charter' option. Having space, personalized service, and maximizing your time on your adventure makes this a great provider. I was very happy that you are kept at a distance from most other providers to enjoy the wildlife. One unique... More

This trip was by far the most enjoyable, peaceful excursion we have ever taken. Captain Ray and Swim Guide Cindy provided us with an unforgettable experience. The boat was immaculate, the food was delicious, and our crew was outstanding. We were the only 3 people on the trip that day and we felt welcome the minute we stepped aboard. I... More

We were in Hawaii for my birthday and I wanted to do something special. We've a couple of reef snorkel tours here and the night snorkel with the manta rays which were great, but I've only seen the dolphins from a distance. I wanted to make sure that I went with a tour guide that was very conscious of the... More

My boyfriend and I went on the dolphin adventure on 9/14/14. We were the only two people on the tour that day and frankly I wouldn't have blamed them if the trip was cancelled. I have been to Hawaii 5 times to various islands and this is by far one of the best excursions I have ever taken. Jan and... More

Aloha, Stacey and Robert, Thank you so much for your kind words! You are among the "saavy travelers" who know how to take advantage of the quiet September travel season in Hawaii! It was a delight to have you on board, and we are so pleased your experience was a positive one. A hui ho, Vicki More

We chose "One Love One Spirit" dolphin adventure because they advertised a small group rather than large groups as with other boats. Our Captain Kitt and crew Jan were fantastic! We didn't get the big boat (it was out for repair, we got a smaller older boat) but it was a very nice craft. I actually liked it better as... More
