I swam with iruka. It is so exited!! thank you very much(^^) ハワイの海で野生のイルカと泳ぐことができ、とても良い時間を過ごすことができました! ただし、泳ぎに自信のない方はちょっと厳しいかもしてません。 ライフジャケットの貸し出しもできるので、自分の泳力に見合った装備で行きましょう。

We were the only English speaking couple there, but everyone made us feel very welcome! We had a lot of fun, saw a lot of dolphins, and a couple sea turtles. It made the Hawaii trip much more fun

Staff was so friendly and knowledgeable! They did a great job of getting us ready for what to expect once in the water. The Mantas did not disappoint. They came so close! Gorgeous creatures and definitely a must see off the big island!!

We had a better time than we thought we would have. Iruka has a boat that you can sit in the side (like riding a horse) with one foot in the water. I loved that. They are VERY friendly and know what they are doing....More
