Dolphins and You tours give you a truly life-changing experience, and you get to spend time swimming with dolphins in their natural habitat!  On Oahu’s west coast lies a pristine ocean paradise that is barely touched by the modern world.  The friendly and local crew will guide you through every step of this remarkable journey with Oahu spinner dolphins.   Their “locally grown” crew members are all masters of the sea and filled with aloha spirit! Each is CPR, First-Aid and LifeSaver licensed.  Plus, they’re amazing ukulele players, singers and hula dancers!

First, their WiFi-equipped shuttle will transport you on the one-hour drive to Oahu’s West Coast.  The local tour guide will provide an important briefing and answer any questions you might have.  Youʻre welcome to take a quick nap before we arrive!  Once you arrive at Waianae Harbor, you board their state-of-the-art new boat!  Their ship, Ariya, has two decks, surround-sound, an expansive bow and two bathrooms.

As you begin your boat ride, you will learn and recite a Hawaiian chant called, “E’ho mai“. It is a prayer to the gods of the sea for a safe trip with plentiful dolphins.  Now itʻs time to meet the dolphins and put on your snorkel gear!  You will cruise the West Side in search of dolphins.  Spinner Dolphins are known for their acrobatic-like spinning skills and long-snouts.

After a fun swim with the dolphins, the tour continues on to one of the best coral reefs in Hawaii!  Here you will snorkel with tropical fishes, honu turtles, manta rays, and you may even see whales in the winter!  In addition to snorkeling, you can ride our kayak, try some stand-up paddle boarding, enjoy our water slides, and bounce on the inflatable trampoline!  They have a wide array of water activities, or just sit back on the boat and relax in the sun!

After a fun-filled day in the ocean, the crew will serve you a delicious cheeseburger (or veggie burger) on a purple Hawaiian taro bun as you relax on the deck of the boat.  Sit back and enjoy your meal with a live ukulele performance and hula show.
