Overview

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!

Can’t find a better Captain and Crew anywhere. Look no further for the best dolphin tour. From the knowledgeable crew, Mermaid Rachel, to the dolphin seeking Scout, you’ll enjoy every minute of whatever your you take

An absolutely wonderful experience that I will never forget! I had no idea the Manta Ray were so graceful and huge. Captain Mike and Aaron were knowledgeable and fun. I would definitely do this again.
