What should I bring with me?
What is included?
What if I can’t swim?
The tour crew is made up of safety-certified lifesavers and free-divers. Additionally, life vests are made available to all guests to keep you afloat.
What is the water temperature in Hawaii? Will I need a wetsuit?
Hawaiian waters range from about 77℉ (25℃) in the wintertime to 82℉ (28℃) in the summertime. Though this is much warmer than the natural ocean temperature in most parts of the world, you still may feel cold in the shade or rain in just a swimsuit. We offer wetsuits for rent at $10 per person. (charges will be collected at check-in).
Can I bring my own camera?
You may bring your own camera on board. But we recommend letting our professionals capture your experience so that you can fully enjoy your tour without worrying about getting the shot! If you want to bring a camera underwater, make sure it is waterproof and that it floats. Dolphins and You offer professional photography for an additional $79 (charges will be collected at check-in.) The photo packages usually contain around 300 over- and under-water shots of the entire tour, including everyone on board. We document the experience from beginning to end.
