See Dolphins by Boat in Oahu
Hawaii is home to multiple dolphin species, including spotted dolphins, bottlenose dolphins and the more commonly seen spinner dolphins.
Though you may be able to spot dolphins from land on a clear day, or you might get lucky and see some while snorkeling at a public beach, a boat cruise is without a doubt the best way to get the true dolphin experience in Hawaii. Here’s why:
From land, it’s not possible to get as close to dolphins as you would on a boat. Spinner dolphins enjoy ‘surfing’ along the waves created by a boat, so it’s very common to see dolphins cruise right next to a boat.
And waiting for a pod of dolphins to show up in one of Oahu’s many bays while swimming there is a long shot. Oahu dolphins are in a different spot every morning. Additionally, trying to find dolphins independently can present safety risks, since areas where dolphins are sometimes found tend to be highly trafficked by boats.
So entrusting a an established and eco-friendly boat cruise is the best way to maximize chances of safely seeing dolphins!
Dolphins and You: Half-Day Cruise Filled with Ocean Activities
Dolphins and You is Oahu’s original dolphin cruise, with roots dating back to the 1980s.
Its Hawaiian crew is made up of licensed captains with a keen eye for wildlife, traditional hula dancers and professional lifeguards. And along with transporting guests to the natural home of Oahu dolphins for unforgettable interactions with the animals, the half-day tour packs in all of the best parts of a cruise.
After interacting with dolphins in their natural environment, guests are taken to a second snorkel location with sea turtles and tropical fish. While there, they can take advantage of stand-up paddle boards, sea kayaks and a 20-foot inflatable waterslide. Lastly, Dolphins and You guests enjoy live hula performances and a Hawaii taro bun cheeseburger lunch.
