The young tour guides are terrific - Jeremy is funny and all others are nice and helpful. They will help everyone with proper gears and fitting, and safety procedures. This is a must fun and experience tour for family and teens. Plenty of dolphins and some sea turtles were seen on our August summer day. Girls will dance the Hula for you. Ask for your lunch whenever you want. Snorkel the reef fish, waterslide off the boat or even ask to pedal a kayak, the thrill is yours.

No dolphins

As predicted - no dolphins. We saw only 2 turtles . It felt as out 4 hours we had such a brief snorkelling and slide riding. For the money we paid and no dolphins we should be compensated by longer time water activity. Team was great, female and male hula dancing was excellent, however.

The Dolphins and You team made hosted an amazing adventure for my family and I. From the decked out coach bus they picked us up in to the actual boat tour, the entire experience was spectacular to say the least. I want to thank the Captain and Crew for showing us such a great time! We're already looking forward to coming back to Hawaii and this boat ride / adventure is a big part of the reason why!

When we went on they gave us snorkels and lifejackets, after a few minutes of dolphin watching and fish sights, We were at our snorkeling area. There was a slide,kayak, and fishies. I liked looking at the fishies. Later on , it was time to go back. It felt shorter than going there from the dock. I was sad to leave, I wanted to see more fish. I wish i could go there again
