we could see the dolphins underwater, but better from the boat. We were instructed not to clap not our fins and splash, unfortunately, most other passengers do not listen to much they are to mount their Gopro in stress. Then it starts with the splashing and logically removed the dolphins. Too bad, you should tour therefore probably better to book... More

My husband and I with our 2 adult kids had a really amazing snorkel tour with spinner dolphins! The guides were really fun and helpful. We were able to snorkel 4 times with the dolphins and then go to a beautiful spot to see a turtle cleaning station. A day we will never forget!

A great morning with my teen daughters. We swam with the dolphins several times (which the kids were really excited about) and then saw many turtles up close. I loved the "turtle washing station". Booked this trip online, purposely picked a day that didn't say "only x spots left" and was glad to have a boat with 9 passengers. I... More

Our morning was almost ruined when out other tour company cancelled at the last minute. Adventure X saved the day when they had some space on their boat and they were top notch. Super professional and friendly. The welcome banana bread and snacks/drinks throughout the day were a nice touch. The boat is extremely comfortable and clean. We found dolphins... More

Our captain and crew were amazing. I brought my 11 and 14 year old daughters, who were just introduced to snorkeling on this vacation. They made it fun (great tunes included), safe, interesting, respectful to the wildlife, and all round a great experience. There is never a guarantee in finding a pod, but the captain and crew knew exactly where... More

Another AWESOME trip with this company! We had more dolphins than we could count and the turtles did not disappoint! We missed Captain KC and his 4 legged sidekick but awesome like new boats. Kelsey and Captain Coca were the tops! You could never go wrong with them. They help anyone from novice to beginner! We will be back!

We did the morning swim with the Dolphins and had a great time. Just zooming around on the boat along the shoreline was beautiful and fun. We jumped in and snorkels around the dolphin pod and also snorkeled around a sea turtle. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable. Just a really, really fun morning!

We did a morning dolphin swim and snorkel tour as part of a girls' trip to Hawaii. The crew was incredibly helpful and friendly and we got to see literally hundreds of dolphins and several sea turtles. Views of the island from the water were also spectacular. I would highly recommend this tour company!

Puako, just north of Waikoloa, on the Big Island, is your start of a fabulous morning of whale watching with Captain Casey and Adventure X Boat Tours. Captain Casey's knowledge and respect for the magnificent Humpback whale is extensive. A hydrophone (underwater microphone) was used to listen to nearby whales singing. Captain Casey also shared his personal recordings of Humpback... More

We had such a wonderful time on the Adventure X boat tour swimming with spinner dolphins! Kelsey, Koka, and Tess were great and very knowledgeable. We got to see and swim with hundreds of spinner dolphins. We also got to snorkel with sea turtles! I would definitely recommend Adventure X boat tours!
