Description

from Deluxe Morning Wild Dolphin Swim and Kealakekua Bay Snorkel
Our deluxe morning dolphin swim excursion is basically two exciting tours in one! This 4-hour adventure takes you to sea in our super safe Willard Navy Seals boats to swim with wild spinner dolphins, to experience their energy and curiosity in interactions with humans. Following the dolphin swim, you will travel south to explore the sea caves along the Kona Coast, and go snorkeling in the calm waters of Kealakekua Bay Marine Reserve (and location of Captain Cook Monument), often called the best snorkeling spot in Hawaii, and only accessible by boat (or a very long hike). After exploring the colorful reef, you can relax aboard to enjoy a fruit platter, other snacks, and green tea, while learning about the historic and cultural background of this region. On our way back to Keauhou Bay, you may see other natural sea creatures such as whales (Humpbacks, in season), manta rays and sea turtles.

Includes:
• Snorkel Equipment
• Floatation Aids
• Fruit Platter, Snacks & Beverages

最高の経験をさせて頂きました。今までで1番イルカと近くで泳ぐ事が出来ました。イルカへの負担をかけずに泳ぐため、イルカも優雅に楽しそうに近付いてきてくれました。私たち家族の心は本当に癒されました。 ガイドをして下さったMelissa Bambiさんは本当に素晴らしい方でした。丁寧にガイドして下さり、本当に親切で、なによりも、自然を守る心を常にお持ちでした。 またこちらで必ず参加したいです。 ありがとうございました。 We had amazing experience. We've swum with dolphins very close up ever. We tried not to burden dolphins when we were swimming.So dolphins swam really elegant.They looked really happy.We were healed absolutely. Ms. Melissa Bambi who guided us was so amazing.She was really kind and she protect nature really hard. We'd like to join this tour again. Thank you so much.

The scenery and the sea and the dolphin were good. It was the closed-door tour only for two of us and the guides drive the ship very well and they are tender with kindness above all. It became the good memory. It is really thanks.

Fantastic! Even though we managed to pick the one day that the dolphins didn't want us to swim with them, we had an amazing time. The snorkeling was stupendous and watching the spinner dolphins entertain us from the boat (in a no swim zone) was very cool. Bambi took care of us by offering two other times that we could go back out with her at no charge. And then there was the Manta swim. I am not exaggerating when I say that it changed me. To be so close (actually got bonked in the face mask) to those magnificent creatures was magical. First I was hyperventilating...when I slowed my breathing down, the tears came. My body was just overwhelmed and looking for release. I've done lots of cool things in my long life and this was among the most moving experiences I've had in nature. Do it!!

It was amazing. Dolphins were not there the but we were able to come back the next day and this time dozens of them were all around us. The group is small and allow us to discover more. Highly recommand.
