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.

This was such an incredible experience! Roberta is fantastic and knows so much about dolphins, whales and pretty much all things in the ocean in general. All the other dolphin tours were packed with 15 or more people. This tour maxes out at 6 people which makes a huge difference when getting in and out of the water. On the... More

My teenage son and I had the most wonderful morning with Roberta and the dolphins. We were visiting from Australia and had never been up close with dolphins before, although we had both done quite a bit of snorkelling. I really appreciated having the opportunity to talk to someone who had such a deep and clear understanding of these wild... More

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
