AMAZING Dolphin Snorkel Tour
Aug. 2021
I booked a 11am Dolphin Snorkel Tour for my family of 22 people in August. This trip was a treat for my family members that flew in for my wedding that week. Even with COVID and potential guest issues getting out to Hawaii I felt good about booking in advance d/t their cancellation policy up to 24 hrs prior.

The tour was absolutely AMAZING. Our group saw TONS of dolphins, got to enjoy the extra time to snorkel at our final stop and enjoy their oversized slide. The staff were very fun and attentive. Half the family never snorkeled before and it was still a blast - even for the 3 and 4 yr old. We ordered multiple photo package (each package covered up to 6 people each). The photos came out amazing and were worth not having to deal with personal underwater cameras at the time.

The Highlight of Our Trip!
The Captain and Crew were diligent to find us a pod of dolphins to see and it paid off!!!! So many dolphins swam right under us that we could not even count them! We could have reached down and touched them! There were babies as well as some swimming upside down! We even heard them making their adorable sound!!!! Shout out to Jen our paparazzi! She was amazing! Do not miss this adventure!!!!

This was money and time well spent. We chased dolphins, snorkeled and swam with a sea turtle! The crew were hilarious and very entertaining, you could tell they truly love their jobs. It was a perfect day.

I can’t begin to express how impressive the crew are. They were so helpful and friendly. They made me feel so comfortable as I am am a senior citizen and worried about falling. There was someone there to lend a hand at all times. I loved the excursion and I loved these great kids on your crew. It’s my first time to beautiful Hawaii and this added to a great trip. I would recommend this excursion to everyone. Again I’d like to emphasize that without such a wonderful crew it wouldn’t have been nearly as memorable👍🏼WELL DONE!!

We had the most amazing day with the crew and staff on the dolphin trip! They were fantastic and extremely knowledgeable. We swam with multiple pods of dolphins. We saw lots of sea turtles and had a ton of fun on the boat!

One of a kind experience
Mar. 2019
I have swam with dolphins in captivity but nothing beats seeing them in their natural habitat. The tour was life changing. I really felt like such a small part of the world when I jumped in and saw all of the wildlife below... fish surrounded us, sea turtles and all kinds of wildlife made us feel so alive. The guides were very entertaining and Rebecca was an amazing photographer.

Nice & friendly crew - lots of dolphins to see
Apr. 2019 • Family
The crew was very friendly & personable. Awesome onboard photographer for regular & underwater photos. The boat was very clean. On our day of excursion - The tour bus was almost an hour late from Honolulu hotel pickups due to no shows .... so for those driving privately to the harbor from any part of the island - there was no store, no merchandise or tour rep during the 60 min wait nor any ETA from the office (via phone). During the tour, the captain kept his interaction to a bare minimum - which is unusual (having snorkeled 5 times on the other islands), but the crew made up for him. Be advised - Food & beverage on board are very limited- 1 ONE bite/chunk of pineapple after the swim & 1 premade taro burger for the passengers with zero toppings - i.e., tomato, lettuce, onion (NOTE: tripadvisor app did not ask for any vegan/vegetarian/gluten free orders when purchasing tix through their website) - no snacks or desserts (for the kids) & no beverages other than water or lemonade in small 4 oz dixie cups - so pack your own food/drinks/sodas/snacks - its 6 hrs (min) day with driving 1 hr each way (hotel bus had a 2 hr each way travel time = 4 hr total drive time for hotel clients) & the 3.5 hr tour. All in all - we would go again - based on the crew, the spotlessness of the boat, the awesome photographer (pics sent via flash drive to our home) & the dolphins - I would just pack accordingly the 2nd time around.

Aloha: Thank you very much for taking the time to share your thoughts and feedback. We are thrilled to hear that you loved our crew, your photos and the cleanliness of our boat! These are all points of pride for our company. We have read through your concerns regarding your wait time at the harbor as a drive-out guest. It is very concerning to us that none of our guides or office staff called to give you an estimated wait time. We are working with our office and guide staff now to make sure that communication remains a priority with all of our guests. We are also going to adjust our 2nd tour start time, as we have found that adjustments to our tours have resulted in a delay between the arrival of the boat versus the arrival of the bus. To minimize any wait time, we are going to change the tour start time and corresponding pick-ups. Our average tour is around 5 hours with transportation included - with about 3.5 hours spent on the boat. So 6 hours would be an abnormally long day. And the average transportation time from Waikiki to Waianae Boat Harbor is 45 minutes. We would never be on the road for more than 2 hours unless there were serious traffic issues, multiple late guests or other unexpected circumstances. Communication here is key. We are working to make sure all guests are always aware of those circumstances so that they know what to expect. We hope our response is satisfactory and that our commitment to customer satisfaction is evident. If there is anything else we can do to work with you to continue to improve our tour, please don't hesitate to reach out to digital@andyoucreations.com. We hope to see you again some day! Safe travels and aloha!

Best part of my trip.
Apr. 2019 • Family
I just got back to CT from Hawaii from a 9 day trip. I try to do different activities and I have to say that this was my favorite. They pick you from your hotel, the crew is just amazing and fun. They have a photographer so you have a chance to buy pictures at the end. The bus takes you on 1 hr trip to the boat where then your taken into the ocean to get a chance to swim with wild dolphins. Your not allowed to touch them. They are wild. I guess this is why I love it. I don’t believed that animals should be kept in captivity for our entertainment. They just swim below you being magic and free. Then they take snorkeling, have other activities on the boat and included lunch. I highly recomended.
