Dolphin Tours in Hawaii: Spend a Day with the Acrobats of the Sea
They frolic, they leap, they even communicate—what can’t dolphins do? These amazing acrobats of the sea are Hawaiʻi regulars, roaming the warm waters around our islands in social, exploratory pods. They are highly intelligent, community-oriented and playful, and are frequently spotted cruising around each of the Hawaiian Islands. PC: Dolphin Star.
Sure, you can search for these friendly yet elusive creatures on your own, but why not enlist the help of professionals? Dolphin tour operators on the Big Island, Kauaʻi, Oʻahu and Maui offer vessels of all sizes and capacities—these are the perfect observation points to begin your dolphin spotting adventure! Staffing these dolphin tours are marine experts, naturalists and captains with a wealth of experience spying these majestic ocean creatures, so you can rest easy and know you’re in great hands. PC: Dolphin Discoveries.
Choose a tour that lets you dive underwater for a first-hand experience, or opt for one that spots dolphins from the shaded comfort of a catamaran or other cruise vessel. Some even offer safety lessons, snorkeling, childrens’ programs and a delicious onboard meal!
You “dolphin-ately” don’t want to leave Hawaiʻi without a dolphin story to tell when you get home. Book your cruise early, because seats sell out fast!
