From the moment you see their silvery backs appear in the cobalt waters, to the moment you're swimming right alongside and hearing their high pitched clicks, there's an enchanting rush of tropical adrenaline that accompanies swimming with dolphins. Here off the Kona coast of the Big Island, Hawaiian Spinner dolphins are year round residents that ply the volcanic shore, and this tour offers local, professional captains who know where to look to find them.

The crew was friendly and helpful and the mantas are magnificent. There were about half a dozen swimming in our vicinity and several repeatedly came up right under the light board, inches away from us. One of them was at least 10 ft across. A very memorable part of the trip!
