    I can’t begin to express how impressive the crew are. They were so helpful and friendly. They made me feel so comfortable as I am am a senior citizen and worried about falling. There was someone there to lend a hand at all times. I loved the excursion and I loved these great

    I have swam with dolphins in captivity but nothing beats seeing them in their natural habitat. The tour was life changing. I really felt like such a small part of the world when I jumped in and saw all of the wildlife below... fish surrounded us, sea turtles and all kinds of

    Response from AndYouCreations, Public Relations Manager at Dolphins and You Private Boat Charter
    Responded May 8, 2019
    Aloha: Thank you very much for taking the time to share your thoughts and feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you loved our crew, your photos and the cleanliness of our boat! These are all points of pride for our company. We have read through your concerns regarding your wait time at the harbor as a drive-out guest. It is very concerning to us that none of our guides or office staff called to give you an estimated wait time. We are working with our office and guide staff now to make sure that communication remains a priority with all of our guests. We are also going to adjust our 2nd tour start time, as we have found that adjustments to our tours have resulted in a delay between the arrival of the boat versus the arrival of the bus. To minimize any wait time, we are going to change the tour start time and corresponding pick-ups. Our average tour is around 5 hours with transportation included - with about 3.5 hours spent on the boat. So 6 hours would be an abnormally long day. And the average transportation time from Waikiki to Waianae Boat Harbor is 45 minutes. We would never be on the road for more than 2 hours unless there were serious traffic issues, multiple late guests or other unexpected circumstances. Communication here is key. We are working to make sure all guests are always aware of those circumstances so that they know what to expect. We hope our response is satisfactory and that our commitment to customer satisfaction is evident. If there is anything else we can do to work with you to continue to improve our tour, please don't hesitate to reach out to digital@andyoucreations.com. We hope to see you again some day! Safe travels and aloha!

    I just got back to CT from Hawaii from a 9 day trip. I try to do different activities and I have to say that this was my favorite. They pick you from your hotel, the crew is just amazing and fun. They have a photographer so you have a chance to buy pictures at the end. The bus
