Hawaii Oceanic - Dolphin Dreaming Wild Dolphin Swim

Hawaii Oceanic features a Big Island wild dolphin swim that’s one of the best Big Island activities to add to your trip to Hawaii. Dolphin Dreaming departs from the Honokohau Harbor at 7:15 am.While enjoying Kona coffee and fresh tropical fruit, the boat heads down the beautiful Kona Coast looking for some Hawaiian spinner dolphins on this Kona dolphin swim.

The spins and flips that spinner dolphins do are amazing and is where they got their name from. Once the group catches up with the dolphins, this Hawaii tour is all about swimming with wild spinner dolphins in their natural environment. The dolphins' well-being and your safety are Hawaii Oceanic’s first priority.

On every trip Hawaii Oceanic’s swim guide will give the group a briefing on how to swim with dolphins in a respectful manner, as well as interesting facts about them. The swim guide will enter the water with you, guide you to the dolphins, and even take complementary photos for you! This trip returns to the harbor around 11:00 am.

Hawaii Oceanic’s 30-foot power catamaran, Pueo Kai (Ocean Owl), or Pueo Kai 2, a 27' Force Marine Boat, are perfect for getting up close. This tour takes only small groups so that your trip is comfortable and personable. A variety of snacks and snorkel gear is included.
