Take the chance to get right in the water and swim with some of the oceans most gentle and intelligent creatures. Enjoy a lunch right on board, and then feel free to get wet again with some casual water sports, like kayaking or stand up paddleboarding. There's even a water slide right on the side of the boat. Hawaiian hospitality will see you back to shore with hula dance and ukulele performances that are fun for all ages.

What type of dolphins can be encountered on this tour?

Is it OK if I am not a strong swimmer?
  • You will be provided with a flotation device for your safety, and many of the crew members are veteran lifeguards. If you prefer not to swim, you are still welcome to enjoy the cruise and watch the dolphins from the comfort of the deck.
Are prescription snorkeling masks available?
