Dolphin Excursions

Waianae Boat Harbor, Oahu

Sav-On Tours offers discount tickets to Hawaii’s Dolphin Excursions. Don’t pay retail for the exact same activity.

One of the best snorkeling excursions on Oahu. One of our favorites! 

Cruise on the scenic west shore of Oahu on a hard bottom zodiac. This well-known area for calm and clear waters and home to native Spinner Dolphins. Observe these dolphins swimming among you in their natural habitat, and maybe if you’re lucky enough you can catch a glimpse of visiting Humpback whales (Jan. – Mar.) You will be able to take incredible photographs of your dolphin encounters as few people have the opportunity to witness these spectacular displays. 

The tour begins as Nai’a I departs from Waianae Boat Harbor and travels along the scenic west coast in search of spinner dolphins. Take some of the most incredible photographs of your vacation as the spinners come to visit you and perform their superb aerial stunts. Few people have the opportunity to see these spectacular displays.  We follow guidelines that are dictated by Federal Law protecting these animals. We will make sure you observe these animals under an eco friendly leadership giving you a safe open ocean safari you will remember. We will snorkel at sites with Hawaiian Sea Turtles and tropical fish. We often encounter other species of dolphins such as Bottlenose and Spotted dolphins too. During the winter months, we may even get to see a Humpback Whale or two or several. Excursions are led by seasoned island naturalists with years of experience on the Waianae Coast.
