This is a truly unique tour that includes the chance to observe 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.

Please note: This is a tour that takes you to marine life in their natural habitat, not in a zoo or park. While dolphins are spotted around 80-90% of the time, dolphin sightings cannot be guaranteed. We do not "swim with dolphins" on this tour, in accordance with the Marine Mammal and Protection Act.
