The Kona Coast on the Big Island of Hawaii is one of the few places in the world so accessible to watching dolphins in the wild. Uniquely adapted to their environment, dolphins are one of the most intelligent marine mammals.
Guests may get to swim with the dolphins depending on where they are and what they are doing. Swimming with dolphins is one of the most sought out activity in Hawaii. Our local knowledge and expertise in finding the dolphins comes from 15 years of experience, whalewatching, and snorkeling tours in Kona.
Utmost care is given not to disrupt their rest, nursing and breeding behaviors. We do have a high success rate of finding the dolphins and letting them “choose” whether to interact with us or not. When they do choose to interact with us, it is truly magical and can be a life changing experience. One example is when the dolphins are “playing the leaf game” they will often bring the leaf or “toy” over to a swimmer as if inviting them to play with them.
