Dolphin Quest (Big Island)
Did you know that the Hilton Waikoloa Village is home to a family of dolphins? These ocean ambassadors live in the saltwater, sandy beached tidal lagoon filled with filtered sea water, the Dolphin Lagoon, and are part of Dolphin Quest’s mission to better connect people with marine mammals, other marine life and our oceans.
Through educational, experiential learning programs, the human-animal bond is strengthened, and is meant to educate and inspire guests with compassion, empathy and the desire to make a difference in the future of dolphins and all ocean wildlife.
In addition to being a fun and educational experience, swimming with dolphins at Dolphin Quest directly supports wild dolphin conservation efforts.
To date, Dolphin Quest has contributed over $4.8 million in support of vital marine mammal conservation, education and scientific studies. These efforts directly aid wild dolphin populations, and it’s all due to guest participation—you can make a difference with Dolphin Quest.
