We offer 4-hour shared and private Dolphin Swim Adventures, and a 6-hour Private Dolphin Swim Combo featuring a Snorkel Tour at Kealakekua Bay Marine Preserve (Catain Cook's Monument). Many of our trips include whale watching (seasonal) and a daytime swim with Mantas.

      Experience the magic of observing and swimming with Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins in the wild. We specialize in respectful, educational, and joyful encounters with the Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins along the Kona Coast. This is a small group experience with no more than 6 passengers.

      Our professional team includes experienced and informed guides who pay personal attention to our guests; they are sensitive to your expectations and are able to balance those expectations with the dolphins' needs and tolerance of human interaction to ensure you, and the dolphins, have a great experience.

      Snorkel equipment, food, and beverages are provided. Our guests frequently tell us this adventure was the highlight of their vacation on the Big Island of Hawaii. We hope to see you soon!

We had an incredible experience today with Kit and Mirabai on the Office boat.

Kit has so much experience with dolphin, their habits and where their hangouts are... and Mirabai added such a sweet spiritual quality to the day. It was so memorable for us... read more

Captain Kit and mermaid Jan are the bomb (boat= "The Office"). Saw bottlenose, swam with 200+ pod of spinners and a couple of big spotted dolphins and on the way back a humpback whale breached 25 feet in front of our boat. Witnessing this, the passengers in a nearby boat shouted, "Fish on!" A truly magical, surreal experience. Kit and... More

Captain Mike and Chris, our dolphin guide, really went out of their way to make our trip fun and unique. When Mike heard that there were whales nearby, he asked if we'd like to swim with them too... (We did, and it was amazing). After that, the dolphins were many and very friendly. Scout, the dog, even joined in :... More

I took the morning swim with dolphin adventure with my 2 teenage children. Captain Kit, Jan, and Cindy did a great job orienting us and finding the dolphins to swim with. I was impressed with the individual attention to their guests and their great love for dolphins! A couple different people on our tour had some trouble with their masks... More

It was the sum of the positive reviews that led us to choose OneLoveOneSpirit as our dolphin swim tour and we couldn't have been happier. Since we had six in our party, we opted for the private 6-hour tour that included dolphins and snorkeling. As we waited at the designated meeting point, my daughter saw a boat coming up with...

Kathy & Joni were amazing. Kathy knew just where to find the dolphins, and Joni was a wonderful snorkel guide. Boat was very comfortable & spacious; plenty of juices, water, pastries, fruit, and a delicious lunch included. When our 11yr old daughter got scared on the first drop, Joni spent some 1:1 time training her in the water before heading... More

The crew was top notch. They helped you with everything from Goggle fitting, feeling comfortable in the water, finding the Dolphins and they even took us to see Pilot Whales. This is a must do if you are in Kona!!!
