Hawaii Oceanic - Dolphin Dreaming Wild Dolphin Tour

This Big Island Snorkel Tour is currently unavailable for booking on our site. Please visit our Big Island snorkeling tours page for other available tours.

Swim with dolphins in this dreamy, small-group snorkel experience off the Big Island's Kona Coast. Departing from Keauhou Bay, we'll head along the reef in search of Hawaiian spinner dolphins. Then we’ll do 1-3 “snorkel drops” which allows you to get into the water to snorkel over the island's pristine reefs in the dolphins' natural habitat.

We enter the water at least 50 yards away from the dolphins to ensure that the boat doesn't get too close to them or bother them. When the dolphins are nearby, we simply float in the water and enjoy their presence. While they often approach us with playfulness and curiosity, we avoid chasing them or reaching out to touch the dolphins.

Tour Highlights:

  • Snorkel cruise along the Big Island's Kona Coast
  • Plenty of great photo opportunities

Tour Inclusions:

  • Snorkel gear (snorkel, mask and fins)
  • Hawaiian juices and water
