We offer 4-hour shared and private Dolphin Swim Adventures, and a 6-hour Private Dolphin Swim Combo featuring a Snorkel Tour at Kealakekua Bay Marine Preserve (Catain Cook's Monument). Many of our trips include whale watching (seasonal) and a daytime swim with Mantas. Experience the magic of observing and swimming with Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins in the wild. We specialize in respectful, educational, and joyful encounters with the Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins along the Kona Coast. This is a small group experience with no more than 6 passengers. Our professional team includes experienced and informed guides who pay personal attention to our guests; they are sensitive to your expectations and are able to balance those expectations with the dolphins' needs and tolerance of human interaction to ensure you, and the dolphins, have a great experience. Snorkel equipment, food, and beverages are provided. Our guests frequently tell us this adventure was the highlight of their vacation on the Big Island of Hawaii. We hope to see you soon!

We went out today with Captain Cathy and Amy. They were both so friendly and accommodating. I wanted to be able to see dolphins up close without visiting a place that keeps them in captivity. It was so amazing to see and swim with the dolphins in their natural environment. We saw dozens and dozens of them in addition to... More

What an amazing experience!!! Of all the incredible things to do on the Big Island, this might have been the best!! It was magical. Captain Ray and Cindy were so much fun, super knowledgable, and really in tune with the gorgeous animals. There were only five of us on the boat (MUCH smaller and more personal than some other options)... More

My husband and I did a dolphin swim with One Love One Spirit (6 people charter). Our experience was amazing. After a very warm welcoming by Cathy (boat driver) and Katharina (snorkel guide), we headed out to spot the spinner dolphins that we saw several times thanks to Cathy's and Katharina's experience. Being 6 on the boat, it was very... More

My family and I did the Dolphin Swim today and it was amazing! Captain Cathy and Amy were wonderful guides and made the whole trip so enjoyable! Within 20 minutes of taking off for the water we saw Dolphins! Since I am a little fearful of the water, I was a bit apprehensive, but Amy put me at ease and... More

What an amazing adventure! Cpt. Ray always seem to know where the dolphins are going. So we were already in the water waiting for dolphins to swim by us instead of chasing after them. If you are looking for a dolphin tour, this is the one to book. Thank you Cpt. Ray and Katerina. We had a wonderful time.

Loved every minute with Captain Ray and Katarina! Swam with dolphins and had several other dolphin encounters. The reef near Captain Cook Monument was beautiful and the water was very clear. The crew really catered to our little guys who are asking when we will be going back. Much thanks and we will be back!

There was just the five of our family on the boat with captain Ray and Amy,which i thoroughly recommend as it makes it much more of an intimate experience. Both captain Ray and Amy were wonderful,you have every confidence that if the... More

Can't say enough about this experience. Friendly, knowledgeable captain and crew. There were only four of us so it was a very personal experience and they took a lot of time with my 8-year old daughter. We were in the water repeatedly with a large group (@75) dolphins who would swim by and check us out. Photos and videos posted... More
