Many dream of the ultimate experience of swimming in the natural environment with wild dolphins. On Ko Olina Ocean Adventures’ Oahu Dolphin Snorkel Tour that dream can come true. Our leeward shore is home to Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins year round. By the lucky chance that guests are willing to relax and passively view the dolphins, we are able to slip on our snorkels, glide into the water and see pods of 20, 40, and sometimes as many as 100 dolphins swimming beneath us.
The adventure does not stop there. Their aquatic safari takes you to a snorkel at two of their top fish and sea turtle sites. “Turtle Town” is a cleaning station for sea turtles where guests can see as many as a half a dozen sea turtles getting their shells cleaned. While “Sand Pukas” and “Electric Beach” are home to Oahu’s second largest living reef and “millions” of colorful tropical fish. Last but not least, whale sightings are an added bonus in the winter months (December to March), – which guests can hear with board hydrophones.
Ko Olina Ocean Adventures offers more tours in addition to their Dolphin Snorkel Tour. For those looking for a romantic evening out on the water, the Catamaran Sunset Sail or the Sunset Sip & Sail are special options. The sunset sail sets you up to view a stunning Hawaiian sunset from the best possible vantage point. A leisurely sail aboard the luxurious catamaran provides a low-key excursion, during which you can nibble appetizers, sip complimentary champagne (or other drinks from the bar at additional cost) and take in the stunning views. The Catamaran Sunset Sail is an idyllic tour for setting the stage for a romantic evening and is available for bookings on Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday evenings. Similarly, the Sunset Sip & Sail is a great option for couples or friends wanting to spend a special evening out on the water. This tour is perfect for those who enjoy a glass of wine or who are interested in learning more about the fine art of wine tasting. An appetizer menu that pairs well with wine is offered, and wine tastings are complementary, while additional drinks are available from the bar at extra cost. This tour is offered only on the first Saturday of April, July, and October. Make your Oahu vacation memorable when you add one of these tours to your itinerary!
