FAQ

Q. Am I allowed to bring my own camera?
A. Although guests are welcome to bring their own cameras, this is not recommended, as cameras can get wet or damaged aboard the boat. Staff photographers will take photos throughout the day. These photos can be purchased on a USB drive to take home with you.
Q. What type of dolphins can be encountered on this tour?
A. On this tour you are most likely to see Hawaiian spinner dolphins, which are a smaller type of dolphin known for spinning through the air when they jump from the water.
Q. Is it OK if I am not a strong swimmer?
A. 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.
Q. Are prescription snorkeling masks available?
A. A limited variety of prescription snorkeling masks are available. Please speak with the crew for details.
Q. Am I allowed to touch the dolphins?
