What To Expect
Depending on the day’s conditions and guest request, your vessel will head for one of several top-notch snorkeling spots. You might get to enjoy the swim-throughs, caves, and arches of Pawai Bay, or head to Makalawena, a secluded area that’s typically only reachable by boat or rugged off-road vehicle. Each guest will have access to an inflatable snorkel vest, gear, and even prescription masks to maximize the fun.
When you’ve had your fill of snorkeling step back on board your yacht to enjoy an included lunch. Choose between a picnic lunch and special Japanese “Bento-style” meal options, washing it down with unlimited refreshments. Make sure to keep your eyes on the water as you eat, as you may be able to observe marine life like turtles, dolphins, and sometimes even whales, swimming nearby. At the end of your fabulous day at sea you’ll return back to the harbor where you started the trip.
Certified Dolphin Smart Supplier
Viewing wild dolphins in their natural habitat can be a thrilling experience. However, we can disturb dolphins’ natural behaviors, such as migration, breathing, nursing, breeding, feeding, and sheltering by approaching wild dolphins too closely in vessels; moving vessels too quickly, or making too much noise. The Dolphin SMART program is a voluntary education program that encourages responsible advertising and viewing of wild dolphins; thereby, minimizing the risk of disrupting their natural behaviors. You are a steward for wild dolphin conservation by being a Proud Supporter of Dolphin SMART!
