Dolphin Charters: offered year round
Cost: $150 per person and $105 for children 12 & under + tip for the crew.
These are 4 hour trips to swim with large pods of Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins.
I serve as your personal guide in the ocean. I have over 30 years experience and have built friendships based on trust with these dolphins. When I enter the water, the dolphins come up to greet me. When my guests swim near me, they enjoy the same experience.
Dolphins are known healers and joyful beings. Upon connecting with dolphins, guests find their ailments healed and are graced with deeply moving experiences from heightened states of consciousness to pure bliss.
After I notice that the dolphins are in their "sleep mode", we go out into deeper waters to look for Pilot Whales and many times we find them, the Bottlenose and Spotted dolphins.
We meet at the Honokohau marina at 7:30AM and return around noon.
We provide snorkel gear, flotation noodles & belts, fresh coffee, muffins, fruit, salty & sweet snacks and soft drinks. You may bring any food/snacks for yourself. We have room in our coolers. Please, no glass containers. We also will have about a dozen photos of your trip a week after your trip.
Manta Ray Charters: offered year round
Manta Ray evening charter, 5:30pm to 8:30pm - Cost is $105 per person + tip for the crew.
We motor to an location near shore that is a known feeding area for Manta Rays.
On the way, we enjoy the sunset & watch the stars & moon appear.
We provide: snorkel gear, wet suits, flotation, soft drinks, hot coco, salty & sweet snacks.
We offer a warm water shower after your snorkel to rinse off the salt and warm you up.
Dry bins are available to stow your dry things. Also, you may upload about a dozen photos of your trip.
Cancellation Policy: Cancellations given 5 days prior to your charter date.
If rain or wind is a factor, we still meet as planned then determine with the captain if the charter will go out as scheduled.
Our 40', US Coast Guard regulated boat is used for the dolphin & manta charters

These are charters I used to call my Special Whale Charters. I've changed the title to Special Ocean Adventures because we never know what we will find on our journeys. We absolutely look for Humpback Whales and on the way or returning sometimes we get in with Manta Rays, Whale Sharks or a variety of dolphins & whales.
