Dolphin Excursions - Wild Dolphin Encounter
Come aboard the Naia I for a journey along Oahu’s west shore in search of wild spinner dolphins. Take some of the most incredible photographs of your vacation as you observe spinner dolphins in the open ocean and let them amaze you with their superb aerial stunts. This tour follows guidelines that are dictated by federal law protecting these animals. The crew will make sure you observe these animals under an eco-friendly leadership giving you a safe and fun open ocean safari.
You will also get to snorkel at sites with tropical fish and Hawaiian green sea turtles. And during the winter months, humpback whales frequent this area. This is also when the ocean is often more turbulent, so snorkeling in the winter is dependent on the weather and conditions. But if snorkeling isn’t possible, you’ll spend longer viewing the whales.
- View spinner dolphins and humpback whales (during whale season)
- Occasional sightings of bottlenose dolphins and spotted dolphins
- Snorkeling in pristine waters over coral reefs
- Perfect photo opportunities
- All snorkel gear provided
Please note: This is a tour that takes you to marine life in their natural habitat, not in a zoo or park. While dolphins are spotted around 80-90% of the time, dolphin sightings cannot be guaranteed. The snorkeling conditions are also dependent on the weather, and snorkeling only takes place when deemed safe.
