Dolphins! If the word brings a smile to your face, you owe it to yourself to join us on our Pacific Whale Foundation Raft Dolphin Watch. This small group tour, based on Pacific Whale Foundation's 19 years of wild dolphin research in Hawaii, focuses exclusively on introducing you to the wild dolphin species that are found in our island waters.

You'll visit beautiful areas where wild dolphins are found and enjoy expert interpretation of the dolphins' interactions and behaviors provided by our knowledgeable certified Marine Naturalists.

Our most commonly sighted dolphins are the social, gregarious Hawaiian spinner dolphins, typically found in large groups that can include 40 or more animals. You'll love their acrobatic leaps and the mid-air spins that gave these dolphins their name.

Bottlenose dolphins are seen regularly on our cruises. We also have occasional sightings of other members of the oceanic dolphin family—including spotted dolphins and false killer whales, which are also found in large groups.

The excitement and thrills of ocean rafting are part of the fun of this cruise. Wind in your hair as you zip across the wide open ocean, you are certain to feel like a kid again! The ride is comfortable on our high-tech, modern rigid-bottomed raft, with its special anti-slamming design created especially for our ocean conditions here in Hawaii. When dolphins are sighted, our raft has you right there at water level, for some especially memorable viewing.

Dolphin sightings are guaranteed. If we fail to see dolphins during your cruise, you'll receive a 50% off coupon to go again on this cruise.

Please note: We abide by National Marine Fisheries Service regulations and do not put our passengers in the water to swim with wild dolphins.
