Swim with the Dolphins with Dolphin Excursions. One of our favorites!
Cruise on the scenic west shore of Oahu on a hard botton zodiac.This well-known area for calm and clear waters and home to native Spinner Dolphins. Observe these dolphins swimming among you in their natural habitat, and maybe if you’re lucky enough you can catch a glimpse of visiting Humpback whales (Jan. - Mar.) You will be able to take incredible photographs of your dolphin encounters as few people have the opportunity to witness these spectacular displays.
Get Wet - Experience the incredible spinner dolphins up close! With mask & snorkel you will be "Droped" into the Pacific Ocean only to be surrounded by these sleek dolphins. After the "Drop" relax & snorkel in the clear water of the Waianae coast while you witness pristine reefs, colorful fish and Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles. Total water time is 3 hours.
After your cruise, lunch is provided at the harbor.
