We did the dolphin swim with OLOS and had an unforgettable experience!! This is well worth the money. I specifically chose this operator due to the small group experience. They only take a max of 6 people on the excursion and since our group had 4 it ended up just being us. Captain Ray has a beautiful and well kept... More

Aloha, Matt, Thank you for your kind words. Great description of your outing. We had thought the humpback whales were pretty much all gone, headed north to their summer grounds, and then you had that amazing up-close-and-personal breach. Great day on the water! Vicki More

One word. wow! Read all the reviews and could not believe it was as enjoyable as everyone was writing, but it was. Our guide was very knowledgeable and experienced with dolphins. The highlight if our excursion was the final swim as we were surrounded by at least 40 dolphins for over 5 minutes. This adventure was the highlight of our... More

We wanted to make sure that we swam with dolphins in their natural habitat with people who are knowledgeable of marine life so that we could also learn. Captain Ray and Shelly exceeded our expectations and the mindfulness they model is inspiring. Being from Colorado, Our 12 year old and I have very little experience with the ocean or marine... More

We so appreciate your kind remarks, and Capt. Ray and Shelly were especially pleased to hear from you. Looking forward to your return to Hawaii. A hui ho,... More

We absolutely loved our time with Captain Ray and Renee. Renee was very experienced with dolphins and very informative. Ask for her as your swim guide. We truly felt Captain Ray and Renee's only objective was to make sure we swam with all the dolphins we wanted. We also saw many, many whales (including a humpback and her baby). We... More

Highly recommend! Captain Ray and Shelly were great hosts who make sure you get plenty of time in the water with the dolphins. After snorkeling, we whale-watched till we lost count. Good food, really nice boat, and just six passengers! Shelly was very knowledgeable and experienced working with dolphins and whales and led us on an amazing dolphin swim.

What an incredible day. We couldn't believe the number if dolphins in the water. The day was capped off by a swim with a whale shark. Ask for Wanda as your swim guide.

My "Dolphin Swim Adventure" on OneLoveOneSpirit was exceptional. Everything was explained so that even someone who has never put on a snorkel and fins could participate.The crew was knowledgeable and very competent. Captain Ray navigated the boat so that we were able to swim with several pods of dolphin. It was absolutely amazing to see the baby spinners playing all... More

If you only take one dolphin/whale adventure excursion, this is the one to take! Captain and crew were knowledgeable, and friendly. They were eager to make the trip what we wanted, and were not stuck on a specific agenda. The boat was beautiful. It does cost a bit more, but going out with a small group makes it well worth...

Capt. Ray & Joanie were the perfect crew to take you out on a tranquil voyage to swim with the dolphins, watch the whales, and snorkel Capt Cook cove. They were fabulous with my 6, 8 & 10 year old children. They properly educated all of us how to be both respectful and engaging to the dolphins so they come... More
