Full description
Climb aboard the luxury 34-foot state-of-the-art cruise vessel “Nai’a I,” and see dolphins and whales playing in the lovely waters of Oahu. The 3-hour excursion will get you close to spinner dolphins and other colorful marine life of the Pacific Ocean.

A friendly and experienced team will make sure you have the time of your life, with opportunities to snorkel among some of the best reefs in Hawaii. You will travel in small groups to ensure everyone gets a great view of the sea life. Choose from 2 daily excursions, departing at either 07:00 or 10:30, from the westside of Oahu. Dolphin sightings and swimming in the water with the dolphins is a daily event; although the captain reserves the right to have the final word on letting guests in the water for the safety of you and the dolphins.

Awesome Crew! Very respectful to the animals. We are so glad we went with Dolphin Excursions, versus the other large 'party boats.' Our boat driver and team positioned us so the dolphins came to us, versus rolling up in the middle of the pod and everyone jumping in on top of them. Great crew - much respect for the habitat. Loved it!

The crew was great and very nice and knowledgeable about the sealife. We got to get in the water with some dolphins around and hear them under water, and see some turtles at the bottom of the ocean. There were quite a few passengers that got sick so unfortunately we didnt get to go to a third location for snorkeling, but it was still an amazing and relaxed experience. Kim is awesome!!
