This is a truly unique tour that includes the chance to swim with dolphins in the wild on Oahu's west shore, plus snorkeling, kayaking and a Hawaiian cultural ceremony! It combines fun in the water with experiencing a little bit of Hawaiian culture.
Hop on board the Dolphins and You 55ft powerboat and cruise along Oahu's remote leeward coast, keeping an eye out for spinner dolphins. When dolphins are sighted, the crew will help you get fitted with fins, snorkels and life vests.
After swimming with the dolphins, the tour continues to another area where green sea turtles like to hang out. Here, you can also enjoy stand-up paddle boarding, kayaking and try the onboard water slide. Back on board, a delicious lunch of grilled cheeseburgers (or veggie burger if you prefer) served on taro buns will be waiting for you.
