Personally guided by Roberta into the blue Hawaiian waters,you are supported with attention and experience as you encounter the lovely Hawaiian spinner dolphins. Share this lasting memory and story with your friends back home, perhaps with photos taken by Roberta. Nothing else you do in Hawaii compares to the natural beauty and joy of dolphins in the wild! Come swim with us! Fin Up Mermaids!A very personal and respectful encounter with dolphins. Traveling right along the coast, you can often see the coral or sandy bottom! Roberta is sought after by first time snorkelers, those afraid of the ocean, and mermaids waiting to be born!

We booked a one day tour for our family. We have a 6yr and 10yrs, and two adults. Roberta communicated very promptly and provided us with good recommendations for what we should do so all of us could fully enjoy the experience. We spent a little time the couple days before trying to get comfortable with snorkel equipment since we... More

Captain Mike and guide Roberta did a great job not just finding dolphins but ensuring that we understood the nature of the spinner and spotted dolphins we swam with and the general marine environment along the beautiful Kona coast. It's a semi-private tour on a rather comfortable boat, which added to the overall experience. It's a tour we will definitely... More

Captain Mike found us a pod of dolphins within 15 minutes of getting in the boat. We jumped in the water with Katerina who is the best guide ever. She fitted us for the correct fins/masks/snorkels and was very knowledgeable and gave us a lot of information about dolphin behavior. She made stayed close by us in the water, making... More

I wish I had more time to detail everything, but in summary, don't miss out on this experience. Mike, Miarabai and Catarina were exceptional at customer service, info sharing, safety, etc. We chartered for 6 of us, ages 15-67, all levels of snorkel experiences, and some who don't even care for snorkeling; two who get sea sick easily, etc. ALL...

Last year I went to Kona, Hawaii and had a wonderful experience swimming with wild spinner dolphins with Roberta. This year I returned for my fourth experience and I must honestly say that every time I have gone the experience has gotten even better. I was blessed to see hundreds of dolphins. When I say hundreds, I do literally mean... More

I had a great experience on the wild dolphin swim. Mike is a good captain, and Katarina is a marvelous dolphin guide. She explained about dolphin behavior and how to interact with them. Seeing the dolphins was a lovely thing to behold; I was entranced by them.

We spent a wonderful morning swimming with dolphins with Roberta and her captain, Mike! We had a 7- and 11-year old (strong swimmers) along with their grandpa and it was such a treat. We immediately saw dolphins in one cove and then swam with them in another. They were so great at both finding the dolphins and helping us get... More

I have had the absolute pleasure and honor of swimming with the wild dolphins in Hawaii several times, and it has always been with Roberta and Wild Dolphin Swims Hawaii. She provides a truly magical and unforgettable experience. On our last visit, we spent almost two hours in one spot, all of us in the water with a huge pod... More
