Set sail along the western coast of Oahu on a beautiful catamaran and search for the Hawaiian spinner dolphins that make their home there. As Hawaii has a history of being friendly to dolphins, these creatures are unafraid of visitors and sightseers. This daily adventure gives guests the best chance possible to spot these amazing animals, then allows you to snorkel in the clear waters of Waianae, with a chance to spot more dolphins, turtles, and a variety of reef fish.
Please Note! This activity does not operate in the winter due to the seasonal presence of whales. Please book the Oahu's West Coast Afternoon Whale Watch Cruise (with Ko Olina pick-up) during the months of December to May instead.
