Ko'Olina Snorkel and Dolphin Catamaran

Location: West Oahu, Oahu

Our Morning Calm or Afternoon Adventure snorkeling tour leaves when the sun is hot and the water is cooling. Discover pods of dolphins as we cruise along towards our snorkeling locations. Then it is time to jump on in and snorkel with turtles and a variety of tropical reef fish.

What to Expect

Leaving the Ko'Olina Marina we will take you to the best snorkeling conditions on the whole island, the Westside of Oahu. While we head to our snorkeling locations dolphins play and flourish along the bow of our boats. Once we meet up with the dolphins (year round) and whales (seasonal December - April), we’ll stop the boat, and sit with them as our knowledgeable crew will tell you everything you want to know about these amazing and beautiful creatures.

Continuing along, our snorkel and dolphin cruise will travel along the unspoiled Waianae coastline where your tour guide will talk about the magical history of our islands and the Waianae coastline as our crew enchants you with legends and history of this beautiful land.

After an exciting ride up the coast, we’ll enjoy an hour of snorkeling in the pristine waters off Oahu's western coastline. Take a dive into one of Hawaii's most secluded snorkeling spots, home to a variety of sea turtles, eagle rays, tropical fish, and healthy colorful coral.

While still tingling from your snorkeling and dolphin watching experience, enjoy our sumptuous lunch, and sip on a tropical Mai Tai, an ice-cold beer or any of our other beverages to your heart’s content. Let the cool Hawaiian breeze relax your soul as we make our way back down the coast to our luxurious Ko ‘Olina Marina home.
