Inches away from many, many dolphins all around us
, Mar 2020
There were six of us, three generations. Everyone had an incredible experience. Micah and Alii were excellent and taught us a lot about the dolphins and about areas of the coast.Would definitely recommend it for all ages. Definitely swam with and among the dolphins and had excellent snorkeling as well.Whales, too. Hard to beat!
We saw it all!!

Chad and Captain Frank were awesome.... they know where to go for the best places to find dolphins. Not only did we get to swim with a pod of about 20 dolphins for a while, but we also spotted a Manta Ray as we were leaving and got back in the water to hang with him and saw a ton of beautiful fish. On the way back we got an extra treat... we found a mama and baby (and male "escort" hanging out up at the surface playing around, rolling, flapping their fins,etc ... the baby was even spy hopping a bunch to check us out! They hung out there for so long! We enjoyed them for about half hour or so and finally said goodbye and left before they did. It was amazing!!
The whole 3 hours were great!

Frank and Caleb were fabulous tour guides. We experienced adolphin swim and whale watching! They were great at instructing us and giving us the best experience possible! Mahalo!
Highly recommend. Terrific experience.

They will make sure that you have a chance to swim with the dolphins, as opposed to other excursions where they take you to one area and if the dolphins are not there, you're out of luck. After swimming with the dolphins three times, we were taken to a beautiful reef to snorkel.
Never Gave Up!

Aaron and Captain Chad were very informative. We spent a good bit of time looking for the dolphins and almost gave up hope, but Captain Chad found them. Along the way, we saw a turtle and a shark feeding. Aaron was very helpful when my wife's Go-Pro fell off and he dove down to get it. Our whole group had an excellent time!

We could not be more pleased with this tour! Dusty and Chad are fantastic guides and really helped us make the most of our day. We felt really fortunate because on the voucher it warns that there is a possibility that they could cancel due to small numbers. This was not true, and we ended up having a private tour. They were super laid back and for a newbie like myself, and made sure I was 100 comfortable with the gear and swimming in the ocean. We are well aware that fuel costs alone were likely not covered by our ticket prices so it was really amazing that these guys were not only willing, but excited to take us out. Chad will snap pictures during the day that you get for free a couple weeks after your tour. They don't skimp out on the dolphin swim- they will drive the coast until they find a group for you to interact with. It was an incredible experience! The snorkeling on the reef was excellent, too. The dolphin come close at times closer to shore, but the fish alone are a sight to see! We were extremely happy with this tour and even more thankful that Dusty and Chad took us out and gave us the freedom to spend as much time with the dolphin pods as we wanted. Would do this again in a heartbeat!
Einmaliges Erlebnis
