Amazing! We saw 60-70 spinner Dolphins, including a newborn!
The Tour and Guides were great. We would do it again definitely as we could see lots of dolphins in Nature which was so exciting!
Great tour. Relaxing atmosphere, beautiful boat, friendly and informative crew.
Great tour. We didn't think we were going to see Dolphins, but finally did on our way back. The staff was friendly and very accommodating.
The crew was great! They were all very informative about the right place to snorkel at Molokini and explained why we wouldn't go to Turtle Town in detail (Safety due to the water conditions) and I think all of us appreciated that! Everyone was very friendly and I don't remember the young woman's name who was on the surfboard checking to make sure everyone did not go into an area where there was a dangerous current but she was really helpful in keeping us all in place and showing us additional areas of interest.
I entered my last review which was actually for snorkeling Molokini! The dolphin watch eco tour was great! The crew knew a lot of information about the area and the types of dolphins that we were seeing. My daughter absolutely LOVED laying on her tummy at the front of the boat watching the dolphins swim around the boat!
