Overview
More
Our educational tour lead by marine biologists and naturalists is based on the leeward coast of the island of Oahu and is dedicated to guiding guests to a low impact interaction, in and out of the water, with wild dolphins, turtles, pristine living coral reefs, and whale watching during the winter months. We specialize in safely leading small groups on our state of the art 34 foot ridged inflatable Scarib with our lifeguard certified crew, as well as providing round trip transportation to and from Waikiki and Ko Olina hotels.

The crew put the mammals safety above all else and gave us an experience that was as close to heaven as you can get.

The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and respects the animals and environment. We swam with dolphins and turtles, and had an amazing time. Don’t go with other companies. Dolphin Excursions cares about your experience and the sea.
