Dolphin Dreaming - Dolphin Swim
US$ 145.16
Go swimming with dolphins on a tour that ensures the charismatic mammals are treated with the utmost respect. While in harbor, your guides brief your small group on how to interact with the dolphins in their natural habitat before allowing you into the water to meet and play with them. Afterward, snorkel a pristine reef with exotic fish, turtles, and rays. Includes all equipment, as well as snacks, beverages, and photographs.
What to Expect
Departing Honokohau Harbor at 7am, cruise the beautiful Kona Coastline while the captain searches for the dolphin close to shore.  The crew provides an educational briefing on how to respectfully interact with the animals and once the pod is found, you and your swim guide will slip into the waters to play, dance, and socialize with the dolphin. You may be swimming with anywhere from 5 to 200 dolphin or more, depending on the pod size. After your dolphin swim, the captain will escort you to a pristine reef for some snorkeling and relaxing. Your trip includes complimentary snacks and beverages as well as complimentary photo's. All necessary gear is provided. Start off your morning with 3.5 hours of total bliss!

Wild Dolphin Encounter and Snorkeling

This was by far our favorite activity we enjoyed while in the Kona area. We saw and swam near the gorgeous dolphins in their own habitat. What pure joy! Worth every penny and every hour it took to get to Kona to experience this.

You probably can’t do a dolphin tour because they depart early in the morning. There is an evening manta ray tour.
