Incredible experience, we saw all three kinds of dolphins- bottle nose, spinner, and spotted. We also saw a false killer whale! We swam with the sea turtles and also got to hold a mini octopus. Our guide Michael was funny and engaging, and made sure he got pictures of everyone. The whole crew was very friendly, Captain Nicole did great getting us to the dolphins and she spotted the whale. JB also helped us see dolphins in the water. All around great crew and experience! Highly recommend.

I can’t remember all of our guides names, but I wish I could because all of them were so kind, informative, funny, helpful, and make you feel safe. I had the best time on this tour. Our boat got to snorkel with pilot whales (!!!!!!!), turtles, and we even got to hold on octopus and take photos with it. Dolphins were swimming with our boat on the way back to the dock. Michael, one of the guides, was hilarious, full of energy, and made sure we all had a chance to see the animals. He was also snapping away at photos for us if we decided we wanted to buy the pics at the end of the tour (I did, because, well, whales!!). The owner of the company (Julie or Julia, I can’t remember), was amazing too. Dave, Ricky, JB, and I believe her name was Laura (or maybe Lauren), were all wonderful. I loved the tour so much I’m going again during my stay here. Everything about it was amazing, but the crew really made the trip special for us. 10/10 would recommend :)

I highly recommend booking with Indigo ocean tours! Every aspect of our experience with Indigo ocean was amazing! When we were picked up for R we were picked up for our excursion John was so hospitable and friendly and very informative with information as we got to arcadimaran there we met the owner Julie And the rest of the crew. When we got on the boat it felt like we were going out with family. JB was the captain of our ship and he was so much funAnd so was the rest of the crew. We got to visit with Julie on our way out to find the dolphins and got to hear her storyAnd how her company came about. It was very personable Kind of like old friends getting together for the 1st time in a long time. They got us on the dolphins right awayAnd directed us the whole time we were snorkeling so that we could all get the experience of seeing them. The food they served on the boat was traditional Hawaiian food and was so Good I highly recommend booking this tour.
