What to Expect What to Expect

Your Oahu sailing adventure begins at the Waianae Harbor, where you will board a sleek catamaran and set sail along the Leeward Coast. See the playful dolphins jump, spin and splash in the water, and keep your eyes peeled for turtles and other marine life. During whale season (November through April), you might even spot a humpback! Enjoy a delicious continental breakfast as you sit back, relax and admire the idyllic scenery.
Next, your captain will stop at a calm snorkeling spot. If you’re a beginner, you’ll easily learn how to use the snorkeling equipment, how to breathe through the snorkel and what safety measures to remember. The use of mask and fins is included, and you’ll receive a snorkel to borrow. Jump into the water with your professionally trained guide, and spend 30 to 45 minutes discovering the magical underwater world of Hawaiian marine life. You will see everything from brightly colored coral to schools of tropical fish.

Viewing wild dolphins in their natural habitat can be a thrilling experience.  However, we can disturb dolphins’ natural behaviors, such as migration, breathing, nursing, breeding, feeding, and sheltering by approaching wild dolphins too closely in vessels; moving vessels too quickly, or making too much noise.  The Dolphin SMART program is a voluntary education program that encourages responsible advertising and viewing of wild dolphins; thereby, minimizing the risk of disrupting their natural behaviors.  You are a steward for wild dolphin conservation by being a Proud Supporter of Dolphin SMART! 
After working up an appetite from snorkeling, sail back to Waianae Harbor as you feast on a buffet lunch, including hot dishes, salads, a gourmet sandwich bar, side dishes and desserts. Enjoy unlimited nonalcoholic drinks and two free alcoholic beverages (for those 21 and up).
Dolphin sightings are guaranteed on this Oahu cruise! In the rare event you do not see dolphins, you will be offered a sunset cocktail cruise or snorkeling adventure for free!

From start to finish this was an amazing tour. Our driver Eddie arrived in Waikiki to pick us up and was so nice and gave wonderful suggestions for sights and places to eat. He was personable and funny and full of great information about the island. He was our driver back to our hotel and surprised us with a taste of some local food to try. Such a great guy!! The crew was very attentive and made the journey fun. They worked hard to ensure we all had what we needed. We saw dolphins, turtles and a variety of fish. This tour was truly a highlight of our vacation.

This was one of the best snorkeling tours I have ever taken! I remember snorkeling in the Great Barrier Reef in Australia a couple of years ago, but this was by far a much better experience! First off, the boat appeared to be new, super clean, and the crew was fantastic! They didn't spend too much time repeating over and over and over again the safety procedures of the tour--like many other companies do I'm sure due to liability issues. No, these guys went right on really quick just to brief us about what to do, what to expect, the do's and don't's, etc, so we had more time to actually enjoy the snorkeling experience, especially since everyone on the boat had done this before. The waters of the leeward coast were very calm and clear. We saw tons of different tropical fish as well as a few sea turtles. We also so dolphins and a whale in the distance--even though it wasn't whale season at all. After the snorkeling swim, the crew prepared a very delicious lunch with two alcoholic beverages included free of charge!. All in all, it was a very enjoyable experience in a different part of Hawaii. All of my family enjoyed it very much. I'd highly recommend it to anyone.

This was a fun trip and was aided by dolphins that continued to swim near the boat. The snorkeling was good and crew very accommodating.

Lovely day. Great staff, our bus driver had some time up his sleeve so took us to a local cave that isn't listed in the itinerary. Great drinks, even though the snorkling area was empty of fish, the sail and dolphins were breathaking.

Well organized, friendly crew. About twenty of us on a large catamaran, didnt feel crowded. We saw a couple of turtles, a couple of pods of dolphins and lots of fish. Had a great time, and would definitely go thru Hawaii Nautical again for this or one of their other tours. The ONLY thing that they could have done better but again, we had a great time and this would be if I was really trying to come up with one bit of constructive feedback was remember that for those new to snorkeling, especially with small children, a little more time on the front end explaining putting on the mask or making sure the kids get fitted right would prevent any hold ups when getting folks into the water. Highly recommend!

This is by far one of the greatest experiences of the trip. Aside from the abundant natural beauty, I was so impressed by the attentiveness of the crew. There were staff in the water watching swimmers and I noted as well the deck hands carefully watching the snorkelers. I felt very safe. Oh! Did I mention the crew also helped snorkelers with underwater photography. I would recommend this trip and plan to return when I am back on Oahu.

The crew was exceptionally nice and knowledgeable. They gave great information about the dolphin, and had good integrity about not putting us in the water next to them. The snorkeling was marvelous, but only wish was that there had been more of it.

Wonderful, knowledgable, and humorous gentlemen tour guides. Got us within a safe but respectable distance to see the pods of dolphins and sea turtles. Then we snorkeled the beautiful blue ocean, even getting close enough to see an octopus hanging out below. Coffee, muffins and fruit was served in the morning, and a lovely spread of pasta salads and sandwiches were offered in the afternoon. Drinks were available for purchase, but the guides took care of us to make sure we had a fantastic time! This is a great excursion! Would absolutely do it again!
