What You Can Expect:

Kealakekua Bay is the largest sheltered natural bay on the island of Hawaii.  Accessible only by foot (steep hiking trail) and by boat, this spectacular marine sanctuary at Kealakekua Bay offers an abundance of colorful tropical fish, a variety of beautiful coral reefs and visibility often to 100 feet. The calm, protected waters of Kealakekua Bay make this spot one of the premier places to snorkel anywhere in Hawaii.  

Flanked to the east are steep cliffs with pukas containing bones of the Alii making this site a very spiritual and sacred place to the Hawaiians.  To the south is Napo'opo'o Village  and  Hiki'au Heiau (ancient Hawaiian temple site), a temple dedicated to Lono, the god of agriculture and fertility of the land.  

What To Expect Onboard:

We want to provide you an exceptional day on the water.  Our 39' vessel is a yacht, which distinguishes it from all of the other dolphin tour operators.  With a cabin and covered Flybridge, there is ample shade and cushioned seating for just 6 passengers.  Inside the cabin there is a marine restroom.  Our transom door, swim step, and swim step ladder make for easy entry/exit to the water.

Rental Requirements

Frequently Asked Question

What is your cancellation policy?

This policy applies to any cancellation of a private charter or reduction in the number of passengers you booked on a shared charter. There is no refund for last minute bookings (within 48 hours of departure). If you cancel 2 weeks (14 days) prior to your trip date, there will be no charge. If you cancel between 8 and 13 days prior to your trip date, 50% of the charter price will be charged. Any cancellation 7 days or less before the scheduled charter, or if you do not present yourself on the day of the charter, will be charged 100% of your reserved space for that charter. We reserve the right to cancel a charter due to mechanical failure or unsafe weather conditions. When we cancel a trip, you will not be charged.


As the dolphins are free to choose where they go any time of day, there are no guarantees. However, some dolphins are curious and do interact with humans; based on our experiences, there is a 98% chance of you seeing the dolphins from the boat and while snorkeling in a wild and free dolphin environment.

How much warmth is needed in the water?

The water temperature here is warm all year round. Consider bringing or hiring a wetsuit or scratch-guard (rented and sold in dive stores) in December or January, although this is not essential. We also rent wetsuits for $15 (plus tax) per person. Please give us 24 hours notice, and provide us your weight, height, and name.

Age/health challenges/level of fitness?

We can accommodate young children through senior citizens. IF you have children in your party, please let us know in advance. Pregnant women are very welcome, too! Some people suffering from severe illnesses (e.g. cancer) have reported experiencing the healing qualities of the dolphins. One must assess one's own level of fitness and ability prior to entering an open ocean environment. We will move at your pace! Please keep in mind that we have one swim guide for 6 people in the water.


If you are feeling concerned about the possibility of experiencing motion sickness, please feel free to take over-the-counter motion sickness medications prior to coming to the vessel. Remember that many of the over the counter drugs require a one-hour lead time before the boat departs. You may wish to consult with your physician or a homeopathic practitioner about alternatives.

What if I have a group of more than 6 people?

We charter boats that can accommodate up to 6, 18, or 25 guests. We reserve the right to select vessels as appropriate to your group size and to make changes to vessel assignments based on vessel availability. For groups larger than 6, please call well in advance. Also, if you cancel one or more numbers of your group, you may be required to pay for their spaces unless we have sufficient notice to make a change in vessels to accommodate a smaller group.
