Not thrilled about seeing dolphins in an aquarium setting? Prefer to experience their playful yet majestic beauty in their natural environment? Then head over to the west side of Oahu to Ko Olina where you’ll find the best dolphin tour. But instead of “watching” you’ll have the opportunity to get up close, personal, and underwater with the angels of the sea. Based out of the Ko Olina Resort Marina is Ko Olina Ocean Adventures. While they offer Catamaran Sails (also great experiences) we can’t help but sing the highest praises for their Speedboat Dolphin Snorkel Tour. The boat ride itself is a thrill, and the crew is charismatic and informative, but ultimately you come to swim and snorkel with dolphins. They have a 90%+success rate, but if you get skunked you’ll still get to see some amazing sites in one of the top snorkeling destinations off of Oahu. You’re most certainly guaranteed to see sea turtles, tropical fish, and colorful undamaged reef. That said, for a small added insurance fee you can get a full money back guarantee if you don’t see dolphins, which they absolutely honor.
Morning Tour 7 AM to 10:30 AM
