Dolphin Viewing and Snorkel Tour

Location: West Oahu, Oahu

Join one of the the most exciting activities in Hawaii, a wild dolphin viewing and snorkeling tour on the remote west shore of Oahu. This area is well known for having the calmest and clearest waters around the island. It’s perfect for snorkeling and home to both spinner dolphins and those mighty winter visitors — Humpback Whales.

What to Expect

We begin the tour departing from the Waianae Boat Harbor in our state of the art 34-foot rigid inflatable motorboat. We then travel along the scenic west coast in search of spinner dolphins. Take some of the most incredible photographs of your vacation as the pod of spinner dolphins come to visit you and perform their superb aerial stunts. We often see pods of 30-50 dolphins at a time. Few people have the opportunity to see these spectacular displays up close and personal!

Our tour follows guidelines that are dictated by Federal Law protecting these animals. As we locate a pod of Spinner Dolphins, we must maintain a distance of 50 yards. That is both on our vessel and while in the water. A vessel or person may not approach a Spinner Dolphin closer than that. A vessel or person may not “pursue” of “follow” said dolphin or pod. We will make sure you observe these animals under an eco friendly leadership giving you a safe safari you will remember. After swimming with the pod of dolphins, we will also snorkel at sites with Hawaiian Sea Turtles and tropical fish.

Excursions are led by seasoned island naturalists with years of experience on the Waianae Coast. Viewing the dolphins is an event that is certain to make your day, if not your entire vacation!
