We offer 4-hour shared and private Dolphin Swim Adventures, and a 6-hour Private Dolphin Swim Combo featuring a Snorkel Tour at Kealakekua Bay Marine Preserve (Catain Cook's Monument). Many of our trips include whale watching (seasonal) and a daytime swim with Mantas.

      Experience the magic of observing and swimming with Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins in the wild. We specialize in respectful, educational, and joyful encounters with the Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins along the Kona Coast. This is a small group experience with no more than 6 passengers.

      Our professional team includes experienced and informed guides who pay personal attention to our guests; they are sensitive to your expectations and are able to balance those expectations with the dolphins' needs and tolerance of human interaction to ensure you, and the dolphins, have a great experience.

      Snorkel equipment, food, and beverages are provided. Our guests frequently tell us this adventure was the highlight of their vacation on the Big Island of Hawaii. We hope to see you soon!

What a talented captain that can drop 5 people in the water to meet up with the somewhat elusive Dolphin pods, leave the area and come back to get you and take you to meet up with the pods again. The dolphins were not into playing and were on a mission to get somewhere as well as being hard to... More

Saw 100-150 dolphins. Our guides were passionate, knowledgeable, and had a good sense of humor. Possibly our favorite part was Scout, the dog who apparently goes on every tour. He was running all over the boat and couldn't wait to jump in the water. If I had one piece of advice, it would be to WEAR SUNSCREEN ON YOUR BACK.

My 5 year old swam with the dolphins. The people in charge were great. He wasn't afraid and wanted to go back. No pictures as they will take and sell to you. Well worth it

This was my third time going for a dolphin swim with OneLoveOneSpirit. I went with two friends and we all had a great experience. We saw humpback whales and bottlenose dolphins and swam with spinner dolphins. We were in an area with other boats and people, but the dolphins seemed to be having a good time interacting with the people.... More

What an amazing excursion. Spent a wonderful morning swimming with the dolphins and observing the whales. The trip could not have been better. However, it was a rocky start because someone along the line transposed my phone number and we didn't get the text telling us the meeting spot at the marina had changed. I was irritated but the crew... More
