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.

Combine a comfortable catamaran sail off the the Waianae Coast on Oahu's west side with a snorkeling tour over beautiful coral formations. The clear waters in this area are a well-known breeding ground for spinner dolphins, guaranteeing a dolphin sighting. Your on-board expert guides will spot nearby pods for you and teach you to snorkel if it's your first time. After snorkeling, enjoy a delicious buffet lunch with unlimited non-alcoholic drinks and two free bar tickets. With transportation available from Waikiki and Ko Olina, anyone can enjoy this family-friendly morning sail & snorkel.
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.

Hawaii Nautical is a DolphinSMART-recognized operator, sponsored by NOAA to educate guests on dolphin conservation and responsible interactions with Hawaii's marine life.
