About
We begin our trip by gearing up followed by instructions on proper ocean etiquette and guidelines to keep you safe and answer any questions you may have. This adventure is full of adrenaline. We do our best to get you in the water with the Big Island spinner dolphins ahead of the crowd. We put you in the water while they are most active and playful. The dolphins that call our Big Island waters home are curious and love to display their talents. They can spin up to 7 full revolutions in one leap. They do not disappoint. If your little ones aren’t comfortable in the water, we have see-through bottom rafts so they can see what you see. On the way back to the dock, have your cameras ready as you take in the picturesque Kona Coast while enjoying snacks and refreshments sharing your incredible experience.

Waste of money
Jul 2021 • Couples
We got to the boat and we were told he overbooked us! We got so disappointed because we were looking forward to swimming with the dolphins. The Captain - Scott - apologized and said he would reimburse us - but then offered to take us early in the next morning which we should not have accepted but he then offered to also take us fishing, so we agreed. Then again, he canceled at night but then offered to take us later in the morning. Again, big mistake - he took us out to the harbor where we saw dolphins for less than 5 minutes - never had a chance to swim with them - and took us to two spots to go snorkeling- where we hardly saw any fish. Then took us back in less than 2 hours and we paid for 3 hours - and fishing?? No, he didn’t bother to take us. Zero professionalism and took away our precious time and hard earned money. The only good part of this terrible experience was the Canadian deckmate - super nice who took us snorkeling- and made sure we were safe.

I would highly recommend you avoid booking anything with Scott of Seelife Adventures. He will not deliver what he advertises. You will not get to swim with dolphins, you will not to get to fish and you will snorkel in 80 foot deep water. He will be rude to you and cheat you out of an hour of your tour you paid for and won’t refund you when he doesn’t give you what you paid for.

I apologize for your experience but one of your travel partners jumped in the water and came back to the boat saying he had a heart condition and wasn’t doing well. As a Captain it’s my duty to get him back ashore as quickly as possible. I have no choice in a situation like that. The ocean is no place to be with a cardiac issue.
