Attraction details
Owner description: Dolphin Journeys offers unique and intimate excursions daily, both shared and exclusive. We take you swimming and snorkeling with dolphins during the day and with the angelic manta rays after sunset. All meals, snacks, drinks and snorkel gear are provided for you, as well as a swim support crew member who is in the water with you at all times. During the winter season, we take you out on our boat to see the magnificent Humpback whales. In addition, we snorkel around beautiful reefs, and can take you hiking around Volcanoes National Park and Pololu Valley. We also offer very exclusive, week long transformational retreats in March and September.

If you are looking for captain and crew with respect for nature this is your bet. This is not your corporate cruise. The captain is getting married soon and we wish her the best

Captain Nancy and first mate Justin are excellent. They made everyone feel safe, welcome and part of the family. We saw dolphins in the first 5 minutes and were allowed to swim with them four times. There are only 6 guests on the boat so no overcrowding. Captain Nancy facilitated our spreading my brother, a consummate diver, with a lei... More

My mom and I went out on the Dolphin Journey with Captain Nancy and almost Captain Justin on Christmas Eve. I couldn't even begin to tell you how many dolphins we saw! It was so magical to be a part of their world, if only for a few minutes. Captain Nancy also found us a lovely spot, popular with divers,... More

This adventure will change your life. Would give it 6 stars if I could. The crew were Minnesota nice and very happy. High quality snorkel gear, yummy lunch and we saw more than we could have ever expected. It may be a bit more expensive than other tours but it's worth it as they only take 6 people max so... More

For my 50th Birthday, my daughter and I went on the Dolphin Excursion with Dolphin Journeys. They take out small groups no more than 6, and that day we were the only two passengers on the boat with Captain Kathy and Bennett. We arrived early and spend some time with Nancy the owner of the company and you can tell... More

Captain Nancy and her crews actually make this a wonderful experience for me. I was told that there are usually 98% chance that we can see dolphins... we saw groups and groups of dolphins swimming next to us, beneath us, spinning up in the air. To top it off, even humpback whales, two magnificent two of them swimming side by... More

I wanted to see dolphins in the wild ( I am against captivity). We booked our excursion and we got so much more than I ever dreamed of! We saw well over 200 dolphins and a couple of manta rays. Hats off to Captain Nancy for the "noodle"... My snorkeling skills had deteriorated since my last attempt LOL!! And Justin,... More

I can't say enough about the incredible time we had with Captain Kathy and Justin. They are so professional and knowledgeable. You are in great hands with them. They are so respectful of the marine life and their enthusiasm is infectious. We swam with hundreds of beautiful spinner dolphins and many newborn calves. We came upon some spotted dolphins along...

What an absolutely unforgettable morning with Kathy and Justin! My boyfriend and I take just about every chance we come across to see amazing animals in the wild, and we've been let down many times before by over-rated reviews and underwhelming experiences. That is not the case with Dolphin Journeys! Kathy and Justin are pros! We literally saw dolphins swimming... More
