Here's what a day with Dolphins and You looks like!
Good Morning! You will be receiving a wake-up call from one of our staffs.
DEPART FOR THE WEST COAST
We will be picking you up on a WiFi-equipped shuttle for our one-hour drive to Oahu's West Coast.
You will be accompanied by one of our local tour guide who will be able to answer any questions you may have.
Don't worry, enjoy a quick nap if you're feeling a bit sleepy!
ARRIVE AT WAIANAE HARBOR
Welcome aboard! 'Ariya' is stable, spacious, and even has a bathroom, which makes her friendly to all ages!
E'HO MAI CEREMONY
We will begin our boat ride with a prayer for a safe and enjoyable trip.
We will be singing a Hawaiian chant called, "E'ho mai", to pray to the gods of the sea for a safe trip with many dolphins to meet!
PREPARING TO MEET THE DOLPHINS
Time to put on our snorkel, fin, and life jackets (children's size available). For those who prefer a wet suit, it is available for a fee. Please listen carefully to all safety tips & precautions.
OUR AMAZING CREW
Filled with Aloha Spirit & love for the sea, all of our crew members are locally grown masters of the sea! (All licensed with LifeSaver, CPR, and First-Aid) Additionally, they can play the ukulele & dance the hula!
SWIMMING WITH WILD DOLPHINS
We will cruise the West side in search for dolphins. As the name implies, Spinner Dolphins (long-snouted dolphins) are known for their acrobatic-like spinning skills.
Meeting dolphins up close will be an experience you will never forget!
HONU, GUARDIAN OF THE SEA
After a fun swim with the dolphins, we will continue on to our snorkeling location. Here, we will meet many tropical fishes and Honu (turtles), the guardian of the sea.
In addition to snorkeling, you can ride the kayaks, stand-up paddle boarding, water slides, and trampolines!
CHEESE BURGER PARADISE
Perfect meal after a fun-filled day on the ocean, cheeseburger handmade by your captain! Melted cheese over natural beef with taro potato buns. Sit back & enjoy your meal over a live ukulele performance. Snacks, pineapple, water, and lemonade will also be provided.
Dolphin & You original, polynesian-style dolphin tattoo will also be available to try. You won't be able to find this anywhere else!
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the crew's Hula Show. At the end, please join us as we dance together to spread Aloha and give thanks. A group photo will be taken and will be sent to everyone via email.
"AHUI HO!" UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN!
