Dolphin Snorkel Tour Hawaii
From US$189.00
Get ready for fun in the sun on this 3.5-hour, small-group dolphin watch and snorkeling adventure. Sail away to the beautiful blue waters off the Big Island of Hawaii. See Hawaiian Spinner, bottlenose and spotted dolphins swimming alongside the boat, then jump in for a snorkel above a coral reef with a wide variety of marine life. Relax, feel the warm sea breeze and select from a variety of snacks, bottled water, sodas and fruit juices on board the boat. All the required equipment is included.
What to Expect
There is nothing like swimming with wild dolphins in Hawaii. Your group will set out along the beautiful coast looking for Hawaiian Spinner dolphins, Bottlenose dolphins and Spotted dolphins. Hawaiian Spinner dolphins are around the Big Island year-round. They get their name from their acrobat spins and flips as they leap out of the water—quite an entertaining sight of wildlife! Weighing around 170 pounds, they are incredibly social and playful. They can be found in sub pods of 10 or more and in super pods of up to 200+. Once your group finds a pod of dolphins, your guide will give a detailed briefing on how to safely and respectfully snorkel with these amazing and intelligent creatures.

The boat is a Custom 25' boat with a large Bimini top that offers plenty of shade, formerly used by the U.S. Navy Special Forces. You will have plenty of space and you won't feel cramped or rushed. Our morning dolphin charter will be one you will never forget. Your group will also travel the coast looking for other large ocean creatures, as well as coral reefs and bright schools of fish. As your group explores you will have various snacks, bottled water, sodas and fruit juices.

Provide are masks, snorkels, fins and flotation devices. Please bring a towel, light jacket, and non-aerosol sunscreen.

It is recommend that you take medication or natural remedies to prevent seasickness, as the operator does not offer medication on the boat.

Amazing Experience

I've done wild dolphin swims with two other companies, one on the Big Island and one on Oahu. Liquid Hawaii was by far my best experience. Although it's a little more expensive than some of the others, it is worth it for the small group....More
