Experience one of the best dolphin encounters on Oahu! From a waist-deep platform, participants touch and observe the dolphins while they swim right in front of them and perform high-energy behaviors. Dolphins play, kiss and may even “hula dance” with the guests! Individual (not group) photos with your dolphin are available for purchase weather permitting, starting at $40.
