I really enjoyed golfing so as a family we went out on this cruise. The decks were beautiful and they gave our kids a fun book of activities that really help them learn and ask all kinds of questions about dolphins. Seeing them in the wild was a real treat!

We did this tour for our kids and ended up having all the fun in the world! We saw a lot of spinner dolphins, the highlight was seeing a dolphin with its baby! The kids had fun, the tour was also educational. Made our day!

We came to see dolphins, but ended up seeing flying fish, turtles and most important- whales! It was so exciting! We took lots of photos, the service was great. I do regret not getting the option with the lunch as it smelled really nice and we ended up getting hungry. But that’s on us!

We are traveling with a newborn and a 3 year old. I had no idea it was going to be so hard to find activities in Hawaii that we are allowed to do with both kids. We wanted to do several tours with dolphins being involved, but all these restrictions just made it impossible and a bit frustrating. And then we found this one. We had so much fun! They have a children program on board, so my 3 year old was entertained the whole time. It was fantastic.
