My first time ever on the Big Island and my first time ever swimming with dolphins. It was a great time. I had Captain John and Chris. They did a phenomenal job getting us situated to have the best experience amongst the dolphins. Once they started to move on, they'd round us up and head out in front of the... More

The whole experience lived up to the brochure's promises. The staff were delightful and knowledgeable. We thought we were going to swim with dolphines, but had signed up for this trip instead. We have no regrets. Although we did not swim with dolphins we saw several pods of spinner dolphins that delighted us for at least 20 minutes.. The snorkeling... More

I absolutely love marine Mammals, and the experience that Captain Patrick and Cassy gave me when I went on there boat, was all I ever dreamed of. We were lucky to meet a group of over 100 dolphins, and I don't even remember how long we were in the water with them. seeing them play, and here them interact was... More

Had a wonderful time with Kye and Lori. We were able to swim with three different pods, as well as snorkel over the reef. Highly recommend. LaRee and Tammy (South Carolina)

My wife and I just did their snorkeling tour this morning and it was incredible. Kriss and Captain Patrick were fun, informative and made the morning swims a very enjoyable experience. They brought us out to see some great landmarks and the settings off the Captain Cook monument and place of refuge were fun, full of great sites and beautiful... More

What an experience, my wife and i booked a ride with dolphin discoveries. We came late at the appointment and they came back and picked us up (what a service). The experience was just amazing, John and Cassy were great. I would recommend it without an hesitation. Karl and Urielle

Kyle & Kassy were great guide for our snorkeling adventure. W both had been snorkeling before in other places but had never saw the coral or fish as pretty or abundant as we did this time. They both gave plenty of background-history on the areas we went to & were very attentive to our questions & concerns. They provide light... More

Just finished a morning trip with Lori and Kai, and it was a blast. They were super nice and informative. Saw both spinner, and bottlenose dolphins! After we saw the dolphins we went to Cook Monument, then a few other points of interest on the way back to the marina.
