“The best!”
Reviewed May 28, 2013

TLDR; Highest possible recommendation for this tour. Get in on this if you like having fun and snorkelling with turtles, dolphins, and fish.


This tour was suggested to us by Adam from the local Snorkel Bob's shop. He mentioned that he had been on a ton of tours and would suggest this one without any hesitation. We booked with him on the same day and it did not disappoint.

The crew for EO Wai'anae is amazingly friendly, knowledgable, and engaging. There wasn't a dull moment throughout the tour, even the drive from Waikiki to Wai'anae was entertaining.

The actual boat tour allowed us to get up close and personal with a number of sea turtles, spinner dolphins, and fish. We were able to get a lot of good video footage and pictures as Keola and his brother lead us to the best spots to encounter them. After we were all snorkeler out, we capped off the excursion with some tasty burgers and relaxed with stand up paddle boards and kayaks.

“Total greatness!!!”
Reviewed May 26, 2013

Booked the dolphin excursion on our last day in Oahu. What a great choice. The crew was warm and friendly! They took us where the dolphins were and we were able to swim with the dolphins in the Wild! It was a rush to be with the dolphins i their natural habitat. Definitely something magical being one with the ocean. The water was great, saw some turtles and marine life too! I definitely recommend!!!!

“Fun fun fun fun!!!!!!!!!!!”
Reviewed April 30, 2013 via mobile

This is a great family run tour and really is a must do for anyone interested in a day out on the water that is filled with laughs, fun, beautiful scenery, amazing encounters with the local sea life and food to go. The dolphins are so great, you hear them before see them and when they are not keeping you're attention the turtles, fish and other creatures are. Everyone has a great time with the crew always picking the spots for our entertainment all the while ensuring our and the seas well being. Will be coming back to say Aloha to them next time, Mahalo people:-) Just do it!

“These guys are awesome”
Reviewed April 23, 2013

We booked this trip through our concierge and we were so glad we did!!! The crew was amazing!! (it is a family run business, Father & 3 sons)
They took us to an area where a pod of Dolphins swam right beneath us, then we boarded the boat and they took us in front of another pod of Dolphins. AWESOME!!!!
Then they took us to a submerged rock where Sea Turtles congregate. Watching the Turtles eat and swim around us was fantastic!!!
Hanging out in the bay afterwards was so much fun as well, we ended up with some great pictures and videos!!!
I highly recommend you get an underwater camera.
They also mentioned that they were playing at one of the hotels that night, we caught the last 30 minutes of their gig......I recommend that you go see them play.
