Amazing crew!

Absolutely magical experience! Everyone was so happy and helpful. I had a brief moment as a jumped in when my nerves got the best of me. Someone was there by my side within seconds helping and reassuring me. I was embarrassed but was met with grace and understanding which helped me pull it together and keep going. Thanks to them I had the best time and got to check off two things from my bucket list. Swimming with dolphins and sea turtles. Thank you!!!!!

Magic in Waianae

There is something inherently serene with being in the waters of Hawaii- Dolphins and You added to the natural magic. The crew of Dolphins and You are warm and inviting. The boat is a fun experience- a nice easy ride for those who have been on a boat before- though if you haven’t maybe bring some sea bands as a few people did get seasick. The main event is snorkeling with the wildlife. We were incredibly fortunate during our tour to see so many dolphins- though they are wild so sightings aren’t guaranteed but the crew will do everything in their power to position you to view the dolphins and reefs. We also were able to view turtles and a variety of fish. I cannot recommend this tour enough. Please be sure to tip as they go above and beyond to bring you the spirit of Hawaii.

This was our first time doing this excursion and we loved every second! The bus ride to the harbor was excellent and comfortable. The tour guides on the boat were informative and funny. We saw tons of dolphins, sea turtles, and sea life. Snacks and water were available. It was a great way to explore the west side of the island. Would strongly encourage to bring motion sickness medication.
