Come experience a morning swim with us and the Dolphins on the beautiful Kona Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii and snorkeling at one of our beautiful reefs. The Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins are year round residents so you can expect to see them whenever you are in Hawaii. Along the way we may see other interesting sea life and during the winter, there is a good chance you will see Humpback Whales.

There is nothing that compares to the feeling of being in the ocean with the Dolphins! You can see Dolphins on tv, can visit them in captivity, and you can even see them from a boat – but swimming with them in their natural ocean habitat is a unique and magical experience that can touch you in ways you might not be able to imagine.

We’ve been conducting Dolphin Swims longer and more successfully than any other Dolphin Swim eco-tour operator for almost 25 years! Equally important is the context within which we offer our tours. Our philosophy is one of total respect for the Dolphins, all marine life and the ocean.

After receiving instruction about the proper protocols for entering into the Dolphins’ world, the moment comes when quietly and gently you ease into the water with these incredible Beings and join the Dolphin pod. It is completely safe, and a rewarding experience for the entire family. Children of all ages are welcome.

Personal items such as cameras, cell phones, or any other valuables brought on board are at your own risk.

NO DOLPHIN POLICY: We do NOT guarantee Dolphins. With a 98% success rate of encountering Dolphins, it is very rare that we do not find them. However, it does happen occasionally. They are free and wild in the Ocean and their appearance is beyond our control. No Refunds will be given for NO DOLPHINS….No Exceptions.
