This morning 4-hour, small-group wild dolphin swim adventure departs Keahou Harbor at 8am in safe Willard Navy Seals boats. On this trip, see the dolphins energy and curiosity towards humans. Afterward, enjoy a quiet and relaxing snorkel in the Kealakekua reserve, often called the best snorkeling spot in all Hawaii, and only accessible by boat (or a very long hike). In season, look for other natural sea creatures such as whales and sea turtles.
Because this charter limits customers to six per boat, there is plenty of room, plenty of individual attention, and plenty of time to ensure that you can get to everything and still have time to relax. These tours have something for the entire family, and are guaranteed to leave you longing to come back.
