This 4-hour tour allows you to explore Oahu's second largest coral reef and swim with pods of spinner dolphins. Watch turtles get their shells cleaned at turtle town, then refuel with a traditional Hawaiian lunch. Pickup and drop-off from select Waikiki hotels and use of snorkel equipment included.
What to Expect
Begin your 4-hour tour with pickup at your Waikiki hotel; choose from early morning departure time (pickup between 5am and 5:40am) or mid-morning departure time (pickup between 8:45am and 9:40am). 

Once you check in at the tour operator's headquarters, grab a muffing, pastry, coffee, or tea before meeting your captain and group of about 30 fellow passengers. Climb aboard a powerboat and head out to sea in search of pods of spinner dolphins. Once you find a pod, you may enter the water and observe the dolphins in the wild for about an hour. Transfer to Oahu's second largest coral reef, where you can explore the living reef and see schools of colorful tropical fish. 

Refuel with a traditional Hawaiian lunch of chicken teriyaki, Hawaiian pork, or a veggie option. Stop by Turtle Town to watch local sea turtles have their shells cleaned, then head back to your Waikiki hotel for drop-off.

This was the absolute highlight of our trip. We saw huge pods of dolphins from the boat and they were just lovely. It is prohibited to intentionally get int the water and bother the dolphins and that is not the aim here. But while we...More
