Overview
Spend the day snorkeling with wild marine life on this full-day cruise along the Waianae Coast in west Oahu. During the cruise, watch spinner dolphins and sea turtles riding the ocean waves and look out for migrating humpback whales (January–March). Snorkel in calm waters among the dolphins and coral reef and enjoy a hot or cold lunch after the cruise. Includes snorkel gear and return transportation (select hotels).
Highlights
  • Full-day Waianae Coast snorkel cruise, gear and instruction included
  • See marine life and snorkel with dolphins on the Leeward Coast
  • Humpback whale watching during migration season (January–March)
  • Full lunch and beverages served at the end of the cruise
What to Expect
After pickup from your hotel (select hotels), board a boat in the Waianae Harbor and set off along the scenic coast. Relax onboard in the sun or shade and be on the lookout for spinner dolphins jumping in the air and playing in the waves. Visit from January to March for a chance to see massive, migrating humpback whales cruising through the sea. Carry on to a shallow spot where your captain drops anchor and invite you to snorkel in the calm water. With tips, instructions, and gear from your guides you’re ready to jump in the tropical waters and swim among the dolphins, coral reef, and colorful fish. After a day of swimming and marine life spotting, return to Waianae Harbor to enjoy a lunch of hot dishes, sandwiches, and beverages (vegetarian option available). Finally, be dropped off at your departure point or Waikiki hotel.

Incredible experience from start to finish. All of the staff were polite, and fun. We saw dolphins from the very start. Got to get in and swim with at least 30-50 dolphins. Then went out to the deep and got to swim with 80+ dolphins in the deep, clear, blue waters of Hawaii.
