I have always dreamed of swimming with dolphins and I was excited to get to share this amazing experience with my 10 year old grandson. We were out swimming in the middle of a group of spinner dolphins and we will forever remember this adventure! The crew was amazingly knowledgeable and friendly. Thanks for showing a great time!!!

Amazing dolphin and snorkel tour!

What a great excursion with Chad and Jesse!! They were very informative about the ocean and Hawaii, sharing many stories and fun facts while we were on the tour. We were given very clear instructions for properly interacting with the dolphins in their natural habitat. We were able to mingle with them during multiple "drops" of the passengers. Chad and Jesse were super respectful of the dolphins in their environment. After everyone experienced the dolphins, they took us to a beautiful area off the coast for snorkeling. Prior to booking this tour, I did a lot of reading of other dolphin/snorkeling excursions, and thought this one would be the best. It did not disappoint! I would definitely go on this tour again! Thanks for the awesome experience!!

Being able to literally be in the open ocean among the pod of dolphins in the wild is truly amazing. The captain was so knowledgeable about Hawaii history and told great stories along the way. We hopped out of the Zodiak 2 times to swim with the dolphins. Spectacular!

Breath of life

Captain Chad and first mate Jessie are secure handlers of sizable groups of eager dolphin seekers. They use comedy and knowledge to under score the best experience you will have here on the Kona side.(period) A huge pod of spinners sprang up and we dropped into their world and watched them so close, play and relax after a night hunt and it was truly a most memorable breath of life.

"The most memorable breath of life" is such an awesome description of this tour! Thank you for the feedback, and we're glad Chad and Jesse were able to show you a great time with Hawaii's famous spinner dolphins. Mahalo!
