Oahu is one of the very best places to view dolphins and also to swim with dolphins.



Not many people realize it but the Wai'anae Coast off leeward Oahu is one of the very best places in Hawaii to see the Hawaiian Spinner and Bottlenose Dolphins. These areas of fairly remote coastline seem to be the ideal habitat for the dolphins and the dolphins can be found here with absolute regularity.

The morning hours often find the dolphins resting in huge pods just off this coastline. Evenings and night-time for dolphins is a time when they go out to sea in deeper water to search for food but the morning time is a period of relaxation and convivial fun and playfulness.

  • Not only can the dolphins be found here but on most days you can actually get into the water and swim with them as well. In fact it is estimated that you will be able to see dolphins here about 95% of the time and of those times that you see them a full 80% of the time you will be able to swim with them as well. The fantasy of swimming with wild dolphins seems to be a common one and you can fulfill your fantasy here on the Oahu coastline.

  • The dolphins are our friends and enjoy swimming with us as well but we are taught on these dolphin tours that we must be very respectful of them in return. Every effort is made to not intrude on their surroundings and there are certain protocols you are asked to follow but the result will in all likelihood be that you will be in the open ocean playing with and enjoying the antiques of these wild Hawaiian dolphins. The dolphins are quite curious and if you simply enter into the water fairly near them, they will come over to you for a peek and in this way we engage them only when they themselves want to be engaged.

  • Almost everyone we send out to experience the dolphins on Oahu comes back with great stories to tell and fantastic photos of incredible spinner dolphins to share with family and friends. Many dolphin companies also provide hydrophones so you can listen in on the dolphins communicating with each other. Pick-up for these dolphin adventures are offered from Oahu's Waikiki hotels on some of the dolphin watches.

  • Swimming with dolphins is an event that is certain to make your day if not your entire vacation. Of all the Oahu activities, these dolphin watch, eco-adventures are the ones you should book first.

  • In addition to wild dolphin viewing we also have dolphin watching and swimming with dolphins in captivity such as can be found at Sea Life Park. In fact on the last couple of times that President Obama came to visit Oahu on vacation he took his children here for a dolphin swim experience. These dolphin swims are extremely popular and are often booked up well in advance so your best bet is to book them early so you can be assured of the day and time you would like to go. Pick-up can be arranged from your Waikiki Hotel for the round-trip transport to Sea Life Park.
