Dolphin Discoveries

Dolphin Discoveries off the coast of Kona on the Big Island offers visitors a chance to snorkel at some of the most pristine snorkel locations in the area and also view the frolicking Hawaii Spinner Dolphins or Spotted Dolphins on the tour. If you are a bit more adventurous Dolphin Discoveries also offers tours to take you out and swim with the wild dolphins. Whale watching from these tours is also very popular during the winter whale season. You can participate in these tours at a per/person cost or these small, fast and maneuverable vessels can be chartered on a private basis.
