Overview

Our educational tour lead by marine biologists and naturalists is based on the leeward coast of the island of Oahu and is dedicated to guiding guests to a low impact interaction, in and out of the water, with wild dolphins, turtles, pristine living coral reefs, and whale watching during the winter months. We specialize in safely leading small groups on our state of the art 34 foot ridged inflatable Scarib with our lifeguard certified crew, as well as providing round trip transportation to and from Waikiki and Ko Olina hotels.

This was a wonderful late morning trip off the North Shore. Dolphins promised, and dolphins delivered! There was plenty of time to snorkel with fish and sea turtles, too. The staff are fantastic, and they made the whole excursion all the more enjoyable.

You may join us on the excursion. Getting in the water and snorkeling is optional, so if you are uncomfortable at anytime you may stay on the boat. Snorkeling off our vessel is in depth varying from 30-100 ft deep, so you... More
