The Dolphin Quest rack cards at the airport caught my daughters eye. She skimmed through all the options of activities to do while visiting Oahu. She has always been intrigued by dolphins and chose the dolphin experience for her activity of choice. The activity was located on the Kahala Hotel & Resort property (which is gorgeous and now added to our list for future travels) and was easy to find. Jade, checked us in and the entire staff was very friendly and hospitable. Also, need to mention that this activity is very easy to book online.

My daughter signed up for the Dolphin Quest and it does require an adult for younger children so my husband joined them. It was a very special experience that even my husband was not prepared for. He described it the best he could but there is certainly something special about dolphins. We're so grateful for this rare opportunity to swim with these amazing animals.

Halfway through the experience, my youngest also wanted to experience the dolphins up close and we were able to get him signed up last minute to do the Wee Family, Fins and Fun. They were very patient with him and his interest levels as us parents know, the younger ones are hard to predict once you get them into any activity. Our designated staff member was very fun, patient, interactive and helpful the entire time.

We'd highly recommend for all ages. This one is not hard to check off the bucket list. It's well worth the money and time. This was one of the highlights of our trip.

Thank Dionne T

Being able to experience the dolphins that closely is truly a wonderful thing. Being able to do it with your family makes it even more special. A must do!
