About This Boat

Dolphins and You ~ Our Tour

Dolphins and You is Hawaii’s oldest and most prestigious dolphin sail, swim, and snorkeling tour.  Our friendly Hawaiian staff welcomes you with warm Aloha !  Get on-board our new, custom-built, 40-ft. power catamaran, ARIYA, and begin the three hour cruise, sailing into an experience you’ll never forget.

There’s nothing like it, a magical experience beyond words, an experience of a lifetime.  Slide into the water on our brand new “water-slide” and get up close with Spinner Dolphins in their own backyard, the pristine blue ocean of Hawaii.  Our crew on board, are all experienced watermen, surfers, paddlers, swimmers, entertainers, and certified lifeguards.  They will lead you into the dolphins’ playground along the remote northwestern shoreline of this island of O’ahu.

Besides amazing dolphin encounter, this area is alive with beautiful multi-coloured marine-life, all of which set up for a “fintastic” show.  We have a professional photographer, both on-board and underwater, who will snap several hundred photos of you and your group dancing hula, sliding into the water on our brand new “water-slide”, and then swimming with dolphins in the wild.  Available to you also is our inflatable kayak and SUP – stand-up paddleboard.  

Back on-board, a delicious lunch of grilled “cheeseburgers in paradise”, served on healthy taro buns, will be waiting for you.  This is truly an “experience of a lifetime” and “A Journey of Self Discovery”.
