Experience the beauty of the Big Island on our dolphin watching & snorkeling tour

This Dolphin Viewing and Turtle Snorkel is a beautiful way to experience the west side of the Big Island. We are very close to the Hilton, Marriot, Mauna Lani, Fairmont, Hapuna Westin, and Mauna Kea Beach hotel. Our intimate dolphin cruise allows you to view our magical spinner dolphins from the boat. It’s a great opportunity to take incredible pictures, and many times our dolphins love to put on a show in their spinning capabilities or riding the bow of our 30ft rigid Inflatable Boat.

After finding our dolphins, we will take guests to a beautiful snorkel location where we will snorkel with turtles, at our turtle cleaning stations (this is an area of the reef the turtles come to hoping to get cleaned by the black and yellow tang fish). All snorkel gear and flotation devices will be provided. Cold drinks and snacks will be served after the snorkel.

Please note that our company has chosen not to swim with dolphins as the laws have changed. It is illegal to purposefully swim with dolphins, and out of respect for the law and the animals, we want to offer a trip that is very respectful towards these amazing residential animals.

We do require everyone to know how to swim if they are planning on going in the water during the snorkeling section of this activity. Please reach out to our office immediately if there was any confusion during booking regarding this requirement.

Please note that these are wild animals. We go to great lengths to find these animals, but as they are wild, none of the sightings are guaranteed.
