Frequently Asked Questions

Am I allowed to bring my own camera?

Although guests are welcome to bring their own cameras, this is not recommended, as cameras can get wet or damaged aboard the boat. Staff photographers will take photos throughout the day. These photos can be purchased on a USB drive to take home with you.

What type of dolphins can be encountered on this tour?

On this tour you are most likely to see Hawaiian spinner dolphins, which are a smaller type of dolphin known for spinning through the air when they jump from the water.

Is it OK if I am not a strong swimmer?

You will be provided with a flotation device for your safety, and many of the crew members are veteran lifeguards. If you prefer not to swim, you are still welcome to enjoy the cruise and watch the dolphins from the comfort of the deck.

Are prescription snorkeling masks available?

A limited variety of prescription snorkeling masks are available. Please speak with the crew for details.

Am I allowed to touch the dolphins?

No. It is illegal. Dolphins are protected wild animals so physical contact is not allowed. However, you are sure to have an experience of a lifetime just by encountering these magnificent creatures.

What is the lunch menu?

The captain will grill you a delicious cheeseburger, served on a taro bun with a side of potato chips. Snacks such as fresh fruit are also available. Beverage options include juice and tea.

A veggie burger option is also available upon request.

This tour was really awesome! The staff was extremely helpful, courteous and knowledgeable. They had so many children on the tour ...I was on and they handled everything very safely and professionally. This tour doesn't guarantee dolphin sightings but they found them very quickly and easily and were very diligent to be sure everyone had a chance to see them. The Dolphins were in groups of 3-5 and I saw them at least 5 times. It was excellent. The reef they brought us to was awesome! tons of fish and I saw at least 4 turtles. I would highly recommend this tour. There are many that just to dolphin sightings, not swimming. Or they only allow 2-4 people in at once so youre not in the water the whole time, but they took everyone at once and kept a tight knit group and had recommendations on how to not scare the dolphins away. It was great. I didn't do any of the water sports because the snorkeling was so good but others looked to be having fun. Great staff! Great dolphins! Great snorkel spot! Great entertainment on the way back! Very safe but also flexible. Check it out for sure. Best day in Hawaii. more

This was a great experience. The staff was extremely knowledgeable and helpful and friendly. I was having problems swimming in t...he choppy water and one of the girls stuck by me, made sure I was ok and also made sure I was able to see the dolphins. My son and grandson loved seeing the turtles and the kayak. Thank you for a wonderful time. We highly recommend this excursion with this company. They’re outstanding! more

The trip was a lot of fun. The crew was great and fun to enteract with throughout the day. The only downside was the dolphins we...re not participating that day. We did get to swim with the turtles and snorkle in beautiful waters. The crew was very energetic and the photo package was definately worth the money. I was happy to get the great shots of me and my son playing in the water. A big thanks to Melissa. more
