Join us on the “Dolphins and You” 55 foot powerboat and enjoy an adventure beyond your expectations. Swim with dolphins in Oahu! Swimming with Wild Dolphins and Hawaii Culture Cruise is a great way to incorporate dolphin swimming with Oahu Snorkeling, and Hula Dancing. The sport of humans swimming with dolphins has greatly increased since the 1980’s because of the education and contentment human beings receive from the experience. The adventure of swimming with the dolphins begins when you board the “Dolphins and You” catamaran and travels along Oahu’s western coastline. Often the dolphins can be spotted close to Kaena Point, the western part of Oahu. Start looking for Hawaiian Spinner dolphins because sometimes they show up around the harbor as they swim under the boat frolicking on the waves. Before jumping in the water the friendly staff at “Dolphins and You” will fit you with a snorkel, fins, and a life vest. Our experienced crew will lead you in the ocean water as they assure you of a safe encounter with the Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins. They are good swimmers, excellent paddlers, good surfers, and certified in lifesaving. Swimming with Wild Dolphins and Hawaii Culture Cruise is one of the best Hawaii Attractions that you and your family will not want to miss. Contact Buzz Hawaii and their friendly staff will add this Swim with dolphins in Oahu to your vacation package.

The English name for a bottle nosed dolphin is “Hawaiian Spinner Dolphin” receiving their name because of the skill of making spinning jumps. Spinner dolphins are the most common type of dolphin found off the coast of Oahu. Swimming with the dolphins opens a new mysterious and fascinating world for you and your family. Did you know that wild dolphins sleep while they are swimming? We ask you to please play quietly during your swim with the dolphins in Oahu adventure. Your discovery of the Hawaiian underworld will make your feel as though you are in an aquatic palace especially when you meet the guardian deity of the sea… the green sea turtle at a second snorkel spot! Please refrain from touching or handling the green sea turtles for they are on the verge of extinction. All of our guests will take turns being lowered in a kayak when turtles and fish are spotted. When the weather provides good waves, the staff will take you kayak surfing. After playing with the dolphins you are invited to enjoy juicy and sweet pineapple and Japanese green tea.

While you and your family are having the adventure of a lifetime, the captain has been preparing lunch. Enjoy a hot, delicious lunch of grilled cheeseburgers (veggie-burgers) and a delightful hula dancing entertainment as the captain makes his way back to the harbor. The highlight of the day is when one lucky guest will be chosen to dance the hula with a genuine Hawaiian Hula teacher.  During whale season (December to April) there are days when you can spot humpback whales.

Please join us for a Swimming with Wild Dolphins and Hawaii Culture Cruise in Oahu. Oahu snorkeling, Oahu Kayaking, Hula Dancing, and a delicious lunch are included on the Hawaii Culture Cruise.
