What really impressed us is the respect they have for dolphins, for the see! indeed, we... 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 came across an ad for OneLoveOneSpirit in one of the tourist magazines and were happy to see they limit the guest count to 6 people. We promptly booked our sail and am I glad we did. Joni met us all in the assigned spot and our whole group was early. None of us could wait to get out on... 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

Such an amazing experience! The dolphins got so close and Cindy was the best guide I could've asked for. Here is a video of my experience even though it in no way shows how great the experience was. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EFX3XkCTYzM&feature=youtu.be

Our family had so much fun thanks to Capt Ray & Cindy's love of the dolphins, we truly connected with the Hawaiian culture :) One Love One Spirit has the dolphins best interest at their heart. They are eco-conciece which was very important to us. Cindy was AWESOME, she is adorable, knowledgeable and very personable. She works so well with... More

Ray is a Great Captain, and Cindy was a fantastic swim guide. My wife and I highly recommend this fantastic experience. Magical!!! The Shogun was a very nice, pristine boat with a maximum of 6, perfect for a small group or for a couple.

We are delighted you had a great day on the water. Although I may be biased, I have to agree with you that Capt. Ray and Cyndi are a great team. Hope you can return to Kona and "take to the waters" as they used to say. Mahalo, Vicki More
