Many people join our Aqua Adventure Tours who are novice swimmers or have never snorkeled before.
Your swimming ability does not matter as we specialize in helping people gain
confidence swimming and snorkeling. Snorkel instruction is provided and guests are taken into the water at
their own pace until they feel ready to go further to meet the dolphins. A swim assistant stays
right by your side and you may use a flotation device until you feel you don't need that kind of
support any longer. The salt water keeps people buoyant. If possible, you may take a snorkel class
prior to visiting us.

Snorkeling lessons are available prior to scheduled tours if needed.
Awakening In Paradise Retreats offers guided Ocean Adventures.
We provide thorough instruction for your safety and guidance
on how to have fulfilling experiences in marine sanctuaries

to experience the spiritual traditions found in Hawaii in a most memorable way.
