About Dolphin Discoveries
We are the original dolphin swim in Kona and the first company to swim with wild dolphins on the Big Island. The ocean is our life and our home. Let us share it with you and your family! Enjoy fair winds, blue skies and spectacular views of the Big Island from one of our four fully outfitted twin engine, rigid hull inflatable vessels on our quest in search of dolphins. Or slip beneath the waves to see underwater beauty and marine life at some of Kona, Hawaii’s best snorkel spots!

Aloha Dolphin Discoveries! What a AHHHHHH-MAZING, Magical and Epic experience!!! The process was very easy. We were greeted by Ireland who was very professional, friendly and helpful! Next, we received our safety briefing and boarded the boat. We were greeted by a Great Captain and his crew. The boat was perfect to accommodate us and the gear. A short boat ride to the site, we were introduced to Justin, the in-water guide. Within minutes we were BLESSED with several Manta Rays and overall we saw at least 15 (maybe a few repeats). What an INCREDIBLE, Truly AWESOME, Once in a Lifetime experience! Justin was very knowledgeable and showed care for each guest. Each Manta Ray that visited us brought MUCH JOY! Highly recommended and choose the Go Pro option! Mahalo! Michele

Awesome start to finish, a must if you are in the area!! The crew definitely knows how to draw in the Manata Ray's to give you the up close exposure to these incredible creatures. Our inwater guide, Justine, was extremely knowledgeable about the Ray's.

We saw very many manta rays and they were very close. It was hard not to reach out the grab them. It was more fun than we expected.

Our guide, Shelly, was very knowledgeable about all the animals we seen and everything about Hawaii. He was able to show us 2 types of dolphins, 2 types of whales, shark and sea turtles. The trip was awesome!

This tour is a great way to see sea life in a way that is challenging from the shore. We saw spinner dolphins and a whale. The snorkeling at Captain Cook is amazing! Jen and Shelly were fantastic!
