    What to Expect
    This Oahu dolphin watching cruise departs from Waianae Harbor, which allows visitors to experience a lesser-visited side of Oahu. With the towering slopes of Mt. Ka’ala rising high above the coast, you’ll ply the waters in search of pods of Hawaiian spinner dolphins.

    Unlike the whales that migrate in winter, dolphins are year-round residents of Hawaii and are commonly spotted on the coast. In fact, dolphin populations are so steady on Oahu’s leeward shore, that dolphin sightings are guaranteed on this two-hour Oahu eco-tour! Scan the horizon for splashes and flutters and dolphins leaping in the air, and Hawaiian spinners can do seven spins in one powerful leap.

    Certified naturalists provide onboard lessons on Hawaii’s different dolphins species, and a video presentation helps educate keiki (children) about dolphins here in Hawaii. After finding a wild pod of dolphins and watching their thrilling splashes, build yourself a gourmet burger at the onboard BBQ buffet (if option selected). For some added history about West Oahu and cultural points of interest, select the added transportation option from Waikiki or Ko Olina resorts.

    We did the dolphin trip with lunch and snorkeling. Staff was superb. We had a great burger with a wide selection of toppings; grilled pineapple, avocado, plus traditional cheese, pickles and tomatoes. Served with chips and brownies. We saw quite a few dolphins and a turtle.

    I would highly recommend this tour. The boat was clean, the captain was very friendly and made an effort to find as much wildlife as possible. The hamburger grill was a lot of really good food- I was expecting less quality and quantity- very pleasantly surprised. Would
