Dolphin Sightings Guaranteed! (until 2017/12/31)

In the unlikely event that you do not see any dolphins on your tour, you will be invited to go out again on another ride for free.

Guests requiring transportation from Waikiki will still have to pay the transportation fee.

Join a fantastic lifeguard-certified captain and crew as you cruise off from the stunning Waianae Coast for an amazing day on a DolphinSMART certified ocean adventure! Keep your eyes peeled for pods of spinner dolphins, who have been known to escort boats out to sea with playful antics. In the winter months, you might even see whales in migration from the north. When you find the right spot, jump in the water for a snorkel swim above colorful coral, tropical fish and maybe even a sea turtle!
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.

Please Note: This tour includes round-trip transportation from Waikiki. If you would prefer to drive to Ko Olina on your own, please book the West Oahu Dolphin Watch, Snorkel & Picnic Catamaran Sail (from Ko Olina).
