Attraction details
Owner description: Dolphin Quest Hawaii, located at the spectacular Hilton Waikoloa Village, brings people and dolphins closer than ever in fun, interactive dolphin encounter programs for all ages. This unique experience is on-of-a-kind on Hawaii's Big Island and is great for kids, adults or the entire family! Reservations can be made a year in advance. Dolphin Quest's Learning Center Lagoon, opened in 1988, was the first of its kind and inspired a new generation of large, natural habitats for marine mammals. A portion of the proceeds from your Dolphin Quest encounter program supports vital marine education, conservation and scientific study. TripAdvisor Certificate Excellence winner for the last 6 years (2012 to 2017)!

Organized, kid friendly and very efficient with throughput of children. I wish they would have offered a longer time for the little ones, 10 min is too quick for $150.

Our day swimming with the Dolphins was very rewarding and enjoyable. It was heart warming to experience an environment in which the Dolphins are treated as equals and it was amazing to experience their wiliness to engage and play with us.

My teenage girls had a great time. They talked about it the balance of the vacation. The staff is very engaging and delivered what seemed to be a good balance of dolphin experience and marine ecology.

This was great for us and our 9 year old daughter. We learned so much about the dolphins and was delighted with how playful and happy they all seemed.

Incredible experience for my two teenage daughters. Friendly and knowledgeable staff, incredible atmosphere on the ocean and of course the stars of the show, dogs of the sea...Dolphins. A lot of time to touch, feed and train these incredible mammals. A lot of different encounters to choose from to fit your budget. Loved it!
