Dolphin Snorkel Tour - Early Bird Honolulu Hawaii Tour

Early Bird Dolphin Tour


Hawaii Dolphin Tour Description

We begin as Nai’a I departs from Waianae Boat Harbor and travels along the scenic west coast in search of spinner dolphins. Take some of the most incredible photographs of your vacation as the spinners come to visit you and perform their superb aerial stunts. Few people have the opportunity to see these spectacular displays. Passively observing Spinner Dolphins while in the water is one of our goals. We follow guidelines that are dictated by Federal Law protecting these animals. We will make sure you observe these animals under an eco friendly leadership giving you a safe open ocean safari you will remember. We will also snorkel at sites with Hawaiian Sea Turtles and tropical fish. Occasionally, we encounter Bottlenose and Spotted dolphins too. During the winter months, we may even get to see a Humpback Whale or two or several. Excursions are led by seasoned island naturalists with years of experience on the Waianae Coast.

Transportation from all Waikiki Hotels is not available now due to COVID. You may meet us at the Waiane Boat Harbor if you prefer to drive on your own. The cost is the same if you prefer to drive to our shop and meet us. The Dolphin Snorkel Tour is not at Hanauma Bay Hawaii. It is a 75 minute drive to our shop from Waikiki.
