Overview

Dolphin Journeys offers unique and intimate excursions daily, both shared and exclusive. We take you swimming/snorkeling with dolphins during for our morning tour. Afternoon Snorkel trips. All meals, snacks, drinks and snorkel gear are provided for you, as well as a swim support crew member who is in the water with you at all times. During the winter season, we take you out on our boat to see the magnificent Humpback whales. In addition, we snorkel around beautiful reefs, and can take you hiking around Volcanoes National Park. We currently have suspended doing the evening snorkels with the angelic Manta Rays. Too many people and boats make the night time waters unsafe.

This was a very special experience. Dolphin Journeys takes very few passengers at a time, so it is like cruising with friends, not as customers. Having been on other boat tours in Kona, I liked Dolphin Journeys because there is no set location that the...More
