Embark on a delightful dolphin watch and snorkel. Choose from a morning or afternoon sail as you cruise along Oahu's stunning leeward coast. Keep your eyes peeled for playful Hawaiian spinner dolphin pods as you stop for a sunny snorkel at two of Oahu's top sites! Explore the underwater reefs to look for vibrant native fish and green sea turtles. The clear waters of Waianae give you excellent visibility, making it ideal for trying out snuba diving if you want to go deeper than snorkeling would allow. This tour is a perfect way to experience the pristine waters of Oahu's west side!
Whale Watching! Every year Humpback Whales migrate to the warm waters of Hawaii, and although not guaranteed, they are often seen between the months of December and April.
