Overview
From the moment you see their silvery backs appear in the cobalt waters, to the moment you're swimming right alongside and hearing their high pitched clicks, there's an enchanting rush of tropical adrenaline that accompanies swimming with dolphins. Here off the Kona coast of the Big Island, Hawaiian Spinner dolphins are year round residents that ply the volcanic shore, and this tour offers local, professional captains who know where to look to find them. In addition to watching and swimming with dolphins, you'll also snorkel with tropical fish in some of Hawaii's clearest water, before returning back to shore in Kona with an experience you'll never forget.
What to Expect
You day will begin at 8:30am (starting October 1, 2017 check-in time is 8:00am) with check-in at Honokohau Harbor. Meet your guide and begin the process of fitting your snorkel gear and receiving a safety briefing. Once everyone has been fit with the proper equipment and given proper safety lessons it's time to depart Honokohau Harbor and cruise the ocean off of the Kona Coast at 9am.

Cruising along the Koan coast your professional guide will find the best spot to watch for wild dolphins and snorkel amongst the reefs. Please note that the duration and schedule of this portion of the tour is subject to change according to the weather, traffic and situation of dolphins. Your tour guide will do their best to bring you a world class experience that you will not forget.

Snorkeling concludes at 11:30am and the departure back to he Harbor begins. Your guide will return you back to the Honokohau Harbor where your tour will end. You must make your own way back to your next destination after the tour has ended.

Had a great time on a custom tour

Our group of Eleven had a custom tour and spent most of our time near the Captain Cook monument snorkeling. It get like we were in an aquarium! Jason and Mike were gracious and friendly. Great tour. I’d go back out with them again anytime!

When we booked this, we were not really sure what to expect. Mike, Jacob and Tori were amazing. My older daughter loved swimming with the dolphins. When it came to the snorkeling, it was amazing. My younger daughter, although a very good swimmer, was nervous....More

Hi Suzanne, you probably dock off Kona which is about10 mins from the tour start. We had to drive, but i would expect them to arrange transfers for you. N.
