Great guides. We enjoyed this snorkel activity. We were fortunate to see several kinds of dolphins (spinner and spotted) as well as pilot whales. We also saw turtles and colorful fish during our snorkel time. The guides knew the area and how to find wildlife.

I took the family on March 2, 2022 to the West Oahu Snorkel with Dolphins. We saw dolphins and colorful fishes and even a turtle. The crew (Ian, Bree, and Dave) were professional and friendly. The boat ride over was wonderful. Smooth and picturesque! For $140, I thought the breakfast and lunch would be better. Breakfast was 3 grapes, 1 strawberry cut in half, and 2 pineapple slices. It also included a small biscuit with honey butter. Lunch was a turkey wrap roll/sandwich and an individual bag of potato chips. I'm going to chalk it up to COVID-19 and the safety measures and policies regarding food regulations. Other than that, it was a nice 3 hour, fun activity for the family.

Saw lots of dolphins and several whales. The crew was knowledgeable and very friendly. The boat was clean and social distancing was easy to achieve. Surf conditions meant we couldn't go snorkeling like we had planned, but the crew took us to a calm bit of ocean and allowed us to swim and dive and enjoy the water.
