Description:

Friendly Family Pricing! Personally guided by Roberta and the Wild Dolphins...

Friendly Family Pricing! Personally guided by Roberta and the Wild Dolphins Team into the blue Hawaiian waters,you are supported with attention and experience as you encounter the lovely Hawaiian Spinner dolphins. Nothing else you do in Hawaii compares to the natural beauty and joy of connecting with dolphins in the wild! A very personal and respectful encounter with dolphins. Traveling right along the coast, often seeing the coral or sandy bottom. Roberta is sought after by first time snorkelers, those afraid of the ocean, and mermaids waiting to be born! Share this lasting memory and story with your friends back home, perhaps with photos taken by Roberta.

I've been describing this to friends and family as 'The best thing I've ever done in the ocean'. Over 20 years I've been fortunate to have visited several oceans, lots of snorkel excursions, whale watching, sailing, etc, etc. Our swim with the dolphin tops everything thus far---My wife and I joined Hawaii Oceanic for their Dolphin Dreaming excursion, after checking...

Kate and I just returned from our morning trip with Roberta, Jan and Kit and I'm not certain I can find words for our experience. If you have concerns about whether you'll see dolphins, I think you can put those aside. If you're wondering if you'll be among knowledgable guides, in a good boat, with a sound skipper....put those thoughts... More

Roberta and her team were the best guides ever ! Be sure that you will encounter dolphins in the best conditions, and with huge respect. We could swim and share wonderful moments with them, as they come really close to you. You can whether stay on board or spend a lot of time in the water and totally enjoy being... More

We as a family went swimming with the wild dolphins. It was a small and intimate party with Roberta leading us, and we joined a large family pod of spinner dolphins. We would often be among them, dolphins all around us and really close. We could also hear them clicking away to each other. Roberta is a great host and... More

We booked a one day tour for our family. We have a 6yr and 10yrs, and two adults. Roberta communicated very promptly and provided us with good recommendations for what we should do so all of us could fully enjoy the experience. We spent a little time the couple days before trying to get comfortable with snorkel equipment since we... More
