About this activity
This excursion is offered as a morning 4-hour adventure and as condensed express 2.5-hour afternoon adventure, as well as ride-along options without snorkeling. Go out in the super safe Willard Navy Seals boats to swim in the area known for wild spinner dolphins. Experience their energy and curiosity towards humans. Following, you will enjoy a quiet and relaxing snorkel in the Kealakekua reserve, often called the best snorkeling spot in all Hawaii, and only accessible by boat (or a very long hike). In season, we will also look for other natural sea creatures such as whales and sea turtles.

Because this local operator limits their customers to six per boat, they have plenty of room, plenty of individual attention, and plenty of time to ensure that they can get to everything and still have time to relax. These tours have something for the entire family, and guaranteed to leave you longing to come back!

Swim with Dolphins:
