Aloha! and welcome to the website for SunLight On Water,
the premier Dolphin Swim eco-tour charter company on the Big Island of Hawaii.
We have shared the dream with over 80,000 people. Let us share one with you.
Aloha – E Komo Mai!
SunLight On Water is privileged to be one of the oldest and most experienced Dolphin Swim companies in Hawaii. All of our tours are conducted with the utmost respect for the Dolphins, Whales, Manta Rays, the Ocean itself, and all who live there. Their safety and yours are always our top priority.
Come join us on our 40ft boat “Uhane Nui O Naia” (which means Great Spirit of the Dolphin). All of our adventures will be sure to leave long lasting memories and smiles for you and your family or group. Our Ocean Lifeguard/First Aid/CPR Certified Crew members will share the protocols for swimming with free Dolphins and snorkeling respectfully in the Ocean before anyone enters the water.
We offer many wonderful opportunities for you, your families and groups to have the experience of a lifetime, all in the natural environment of the breathtaking Ocean. You can swim with completely free Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins, snorkel with the Manta Rays at night, watch and listen to the magical Humpback Whales, or snorkel in the pristine waters of Kealakekua Bay.
