Overview

Our educational tour lead by marine biologists and naturalists is based on the leeward coast of the island of Oahu and is dedicated to guiding guests to a low impact interaction, in and out of the water, with wild dolphins, turtles, pristine living coral reefs, and whale watching during the winter months. We specialize in safely leading small groups on our state of the art 34 foot ridged inflatable Scarib with our lifeguard certified crew, as well as providing round trip transportation to and from Waikiki and Ko Olina hotels.

It is a local company with Professional crew and it was an unforgetable experience to be close to dolphines on their natural habitat.

The crew was friendly, they give you freedom without a bunch of rules, which many of these type of things have so many rules you cant even enjoy yourself. The photographer was awesome too! Its worth buying the pictures

We had an amazing time on the this trip. The guides were informative and the pictures that Paul took were awesome. Very early start, but the views and the experiences in the water made it worthwhile. We saw bottlenose dolphins too which was pretty cool.
