One of the most memorable experiences that my daughter and I shared swimming with the adorable male dolphin, Nua. The only comment is that we wish we were provided proper facilities to shower and change afterwards.

I Googled them afterwards. The owner used to capture dolphins in the 80s before he had to surrender his dealer's license so he opened this place. Disgusting.

Dolphin Quest is in Kahala...only about 15 min. from Waikiki. A taxi or Uber shouldn't be too expensive.
