For those capable of driving, our meeting point is Waianae Small Boat Harbor, 85-491 Farrington Hwy, Waianae, HI 96792. Spot the 2-story building with an orange roof near the waterfront and wait in front (Pier A) at 7:15 AM. Please ensure to check-in at least 15 minutes prior to the tour time.
With a cozy group limited to 24 people, even though our catamaran can host up to 42, this intimate excursion will take you to the West Coast of Oahu for an impressive swimming experience with wild dolphins. You’ll also gain insights about the local ecosystems and visit Hawaii’s cultural and historical sites. Rest assured, our certified lifeguard crew is ready to ensure your safety throughout the tour.
While we can’t guarantee sightings of wild dolphins and other marine life, we promise an authentic encounter with the local fauna, weather conditions permitting. Please note that your journey back to the harbor might get delayed due to wildlife and weather conditions.
Our tours are generally not wheelchair accessible and infants must sit on laps. Most travelers can participate and make unforgettable memories with us. Feel free to bring your own food and non-alcoholic beverages. We also provide water, juice, and light snacks.
Note that due to Hawaiian superstitions, bananas are considered bad luck and are prohibited on the boat. You’re welcome to bring your own snorkeling gear, or use the equipment we provide on board.
Finally, please bear in mind that from June 6th to July 6th, due to boat maintenance, we will operate with a high-speed Zodiac boat.
