This was so much fun! The dolphins were awesome - very playful. Can't wait to come back and do it again! Jenna and Dave were great in the way they handled the tour. Appreciated their expertise and kindness - looking after all of us on board - and of course looking after the dolphins too!

Jenna and Rebecca obviously love what they do and it's infectious. We went to Capt. Cook's monument with them yesterday and had a great time. We saw large pods of dolphins around the boat three separate times and each time Jenna thanked them for joining us! Both women are very knowledgable about the area and are exceptionally skilled at keeping everyone happy. We have been diving and snorkeling for decades but the other group was new to snorkeling and felt a bit queasy, yet Jenna and Rebecca gave everyone the right level of attention they needed and made sure we all enjoyed ourselves. Whatever your skill level these two will make you feel at home. The snorkel area was great even though the reefs are not what they used to be, there are many colorful species of fish and urchins to look at.
The boat ride was awesome.

This was a great experience. We saw over thirty dolphins and later on had the opportunity to explore a reef. Our guides, Rebecca and Kai were full of knowledge and were very helpful.

My family of four had a wonderful time with the Dolphin Discovery crew. Our Captain, Jenna was outstanding. It felt like she knew what she was doing with the boat and made sure the passengers were all having a good time. Amanda, the First Mate, was incredible on making sure we all spotted the dolphins. They both took really good care of us. We had wonderful snacks and things to drink. On our adventure we saw a whole lot of dolphins and even caught a few little baby dolphins. We spent a good amount of time in the water which was cool. I would highly recommend Dolphin Discoveries to anyone who is looking for a unforgettable adventure.

I had an amazing experience with Captain Jenna and First Mate Amanda when we went out in November. We saw bottle nose dolphins and Jenna worked with another captain on a different tour to get them to surf on the waves we made when the two wakes joined. Then we found a large pod of the spinner dolphins and swam with at least 50 dolphins, maybe more! I followed Captain's orders and was able to have "a moment" with a dolphin who swam within feet of me, taking me in while keeping one eye on it's baby behind. A once in a lifetime experience made fantastic by knowledgeable guides.
