Kona Dolphin Swim & Snorkel Tour

Swim with dolphins in the calm clear waters of Kona, Hawaii. Join Wahine Charters on our Kona Dolphin Swim as we cruise the beautiful coastline looking for Hawaii’s friendly Spinner Dolphins. It’s not uncommon to encounter Spotted Dolphins and Bottlenose Dolphins all on the same trip! We practice responsible Dolphin interactions and will only enter the water if the Dolphins are willing. Our captain (who has a bachelor’s degree in Fisheries and Marine Science) will also share some guidelines to minimize our impact. The Kona Dolphin Swim is safe and fun for all ages, we give a detailed briefing on how to safely and respectfully snorkel with our resident wild spinner dolphins before you are cleared to swim with them. Previous snorkeling experience is a plus, if you need a refresher or extra assistance please let our crew know at check in.

Kona Dolphin Swim Info

The Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins are usually found close to the shore during the day. Pods of Spinner Dolphin range in size from just a few dolphins, to hundreds of dolphins. You will be able to watch them interact in their natural environment. Some days the Dolphins are very curious and may swim right up next to you. Other days they seem to have other things on their minds. Spinner Dolphins mate year round and you are likely to see mothers and their calves. After our time with the Dolphins, we like to find a beautiful reef and spend some time snorkeling amongst the fish and coral.

We provide all snorkel gear, beverages, fresh island fruit, and snacks. Our boat, the “Wicked Wahine” is a US Coast Guard certified vessel. There is shade and a head (bathroom) onboard. We have comfortable seating for 14 guests, which is the most we will take out at a time for a more one on one experience.
