My boyfriend and I had the time of our lives swimming with the dolphins. The staff was amazing, our instructor was flawless, and the dolphins were magnificent. I would highly recommend swimming with the dolphins at The Dolphin Quest in Oahu!

Dolphin Quest is in Kahala...only about 15 min. from Waikiki. A taxi or Uber shouldn't be too expensive.
