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.

This trip was recommended by a friend who lived in Honolulu. The experience was so much better than expected. The crew was amazing - Jenna (boat captain), Cam (photographer), and Emmanulla (driver and guide). HIGHLY recommend

One of the coolest things I’ve ever experienced! Got to swim close up with a baby dolphin and a huge turtle. Couldn’t have asked for a better crew. Highly recommend the 6:30am trip, the view of the sun coming up was amazing!

The staff is great and what’s cooler than being in the water while dolphins are swimming around. There are different companies that provide excursions, however this group is the best! Mahalo

The dolphins swam around us 3 times, and we saw turtles, fish, and lots of corral. Basically we checked off the whole list! The staff was incredibly friendly, and I liked that we ate off the boat. Will recommend this tour to all my friends...More

So much fun!!! We saw lots of dolphins. The staff was fun, knowledgeable and respectful of the sea life’s natural environment. We ended the excursion with sea turtles and other colorful fish, followed by lunch. One of the neatest experiences I’ve ever had.

yes you can. it depends on the pods mood if they are accepting. 90% they will. i had 2 swims in one trip. you have to wear a life vest during dolphin portion to keep you from moving much. they are very shy to alot of movement
