UNLIKE ANY OTHER
Aloha Ocean invites you to embark on a journey like no other along the picturesque Waianae coast of West Oahu.
Led by our passionate local guide, Shanti, whose roots run deep in the ocean, we offer a rare opportunity to swim with wild dolphin species like Bottlenose, Rough-tooth, and Spotted dolphins.
Unlike other tour operators, we offer intimate encounters with pelagic dolphins in small groups of up to 6 guests, ensuring a personal connection with both wildlife and our knowledgeable crew. Book now for a journey filled with breathtaking marine life and the spirit of aloha.
Regulations prohibit swimming with resting Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins in the shallow bays of Hawaii, but we head out to deeper waters to swim with pelagic species such as Bottlenose, Rough-tooth, and Spotted dolphins. West Oahu is one of the only remaining places in Hawaii where you can snorkel alongside dolphins in the wild. Our commitment to environmental stewardship is paramount, and all our tours adhere to eco-friendly practices.
*Transportation is subject to availability. Please request and we will contact you to let you know if the requested date is available.

WHALE SEASON HAS ARRIVED
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. Not only can you swim with dolphins in their natural habitat, but you may also see majestic humpback whales on your tour!
Whale season runs from November through about March each year.
Dolphin Swim & Snorkeling Tour SCHEDULE
We will depart from the harbor and head north along the coast. Take in views of the Waianae mountain range, the first mountain range formed when the volcano that created Oahu erupted.

We’ll provide you with everything you need for a comfortable underwater experience, including fins, a mask and snorkel. We’ll also give snorkeling instruction for first-timers.

Once we spot the dolphins, it’s time to jump in! Our ocean guide will position us for the best dolphin encounter. Watch as they glide through the water.
Snorkel with Turtles and Fish
Next, we’ll head to our snorkeling location to swim with Hawaiian green sea turtles and tropical reef fish. You’ll have 45 minutes of free time to snorkel or relax on the boat.
Relax Down the Coast
After snorkeling, unwind with a BYOB beverage as we make our way back down the coastline. We’ll keep our eyes peeled for other wildlife along the way.
After returning to the harbor, we will dock the boat and help you gather your things.
