Dolphin Discoveries
Activity location: Big Island
Last updated: 2023/11/01
We are Kona’s Original Dolphin Swim! Dolphin Discoveries pioneered dolphin swim tours in the early 1990s and we have worked on writing guidelines which set the standards for a sustainable dolphin swim tours throughout the Hawaiian Islands and the rest of the Pacific. The ocean is our life and our home. Let us share it with you and your family!

Kona is known as “The Gold Coast” not for gold and treasure but for the enormous schools of Golden Tang that can be seen swimming amongst the coral reefs everywhere on the Big Island’s windward side, but are best seen while snorkeling with us!

Enjoy fair winds, blue skies and spectacular views of the Big Island from one of our four fully outfitted twin-engine, rigid hull inflatable vessels on our quest to find dolphins. Slip beneath the waves to see underwater beauty and marine life at some of Kona, Hawaii’s best snorkel spots!
