We went with Sea Quest. First of all, this is swimming with wild dolphins in their natural habitat. So don't be expecting the tour where the dolphin pops up in the water next to you, takes a nice picture, and kisses you. Our tour guides were informative, engaging, and personable Manu spelling? and Sam. We had a blast with them and felt like they were close friends instantly. We only had 4 guests on our tour as opposed to 10-14, so the boat was comfortable, we got plenty of attention from the crew, and they did whatever we were comfortable with. I imagine it is difficult to track these dolphins, but our tour company did a great job finding them and dropping us off directly in their swimming path so that they dolphin pods swam right through us. They made sure we got multiple swim-throughs. We then went to the snorkel site and had plenty of time to snorkel me or hang out on the boat and chat with Manu and Sam my wife and the 2 other ladies on the tour. A nice lunch with deli sandwich wraps, chips, juice/water, and small chocolates was provided.

I can't say enough about this tour!! Everyone, including the store staff, was so nice and seemed to genuinely care that you had a great time. I wish I had known about their other tours before I booked them with other companies.

The guides were quick off the mark with any dolphin sitings and we were off of the boat in seconds and swam three times over a pod of six dolphins. The snorkelling stops were many and lengthy. The guides were fun and knowledgeable and Kendra gave a great narrative at the Cook monument, which was especially important to us as Cptn Cook's fellow Brits and Yorkshire folk. The speed of the raft over the water was also fun as were the visits to several shoreline caves. The lunch sandwiches hit the spot real good and the offer of refreshments was constant. We pondered for quite some time over which trip to take and I'm pleased to say that we chose well. I can't imagine any other trip giving us as much variety as this one. We'll do it again when we return here.

What You'll Get

Make your own way to Keauhou Bay in the morning to meet your experienced guide. After a safety briefing, board your boat — a rigid hull inflatable raft equipped with a sun shade — and head out on the ocean to look for wild dolphins. When your guide locates a pod, your boat stops so that you can meet the dolphins. Wearing the provided mask and snorkel, hop into the water as the dolphins arrive to play. You may hear excited whistles and splashes from the amazing creatures as they swim, eat, jump, and, if you’re lucky, show off with their babies. Admire the grace and strength of the curious dolphins as you swim and watch them at close quarters.

Once you have experienced the wild dolphins, your boat heads to Kealakekua Bay, a protected marine sanctuary for more than 30 years and considered one of the best snorkeling spots in Hawaii. The bay typically has excellent visibility with a variety of multi-colored fish and coral to delight both experienced and novice snorkelers.

Your guide points out the Captain Cook Monument, located where the Hawaiian village of Kaawaloa once stood on the edge of the bay. Both the monument and the village form an important part of Hawaii’s history, as Captain Cook first came ashore in Hawaii at the village and later perished there.

Throughout the 5-hour tour, your guide shares informative commentary about Hawaii’s marine life, geology and history. You may get close to sea caves and lava tubes as your boat cruises along the coast and you might even see whales and sea turtles on the open water. While on the boat, your guide provides snacks, drinks and a deli lunch to refuel your energy during the adventure.

At the end of a memorable tour, your guide returns your small group to Keauhou Bay.

Please note: The tour aims to snorkel at Kealakekua Bay after the dolphin swim. However, an alternate site may be substituted due to the unpredictable location of wild dolphins.
