What to Expect on the Day of the Dolphin Tour
Aloha and welcome to the tour! Here’s a brief overview of what your tour will look like on the Dolphins and You tour. For more detailed information and activity times, visit the Schedule page.
OUR AMAZING CREW
Our fun, local crew is the reason why we’re the best dolphin tour in Hawaii. They have a true passion for the sea and are eager to share with you the meaning of Aloha Spirit.
All crew members are CPR and First-Aid certified. And might we add – they are also some of the best hula dancers and ukelele players on the island!
TRADITIONAL E’HO MAI CEREMONY
Before we see the dolphins, we will all take part in the E’Ho Mai Ceremony, featuring a traditional song written by the well known Hawaiian singer and cultural icon Edith Kanakaʻole.
We sing this meaningful song and present plumeria flowers for a safe journey through the waters and plentiful friendly dolphins.
SWIM WITH WILD DOLPHINS
Once in the water, you will encounter Hawaii’s famous Spinner Dolphins. They get this name from their acrobatic spinning jumps from the water.
Our trained guides will explain to you the best ways to interact with the dolphins in the water and ensure that everyone gets to see!
After swimming with the dolphins, we will head to another reef where lots of tropical fish and sea turtles gather.
While you hang out with the fish and turtles, we’ll take awesome photos of you underwater!
SWIM WITH HONU TURTLES
The Honu, or the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle, is a gentle gliding beauty. They love to swim by us our second snorkel spot.
After you finish snorkeling, try out our kayaks, stand-up paddle boards and water slide!
TARO BUN CHEESEBURGER LUNCH
After we are all finished playing in the water, the Captain will serve you a special Hawaiian cheeseburger! Or a veggie burger, if you prefer.
Bite into the unique and colorful purple Hawaiian Taro buns. We also hand out fresh pineapple! Mmmmm Ono! ‘Ono’ means ‘delicious’ in Hawaiian. Mahalo, Captain!
