Create an itinerary including Dolphin Quest
If you'd rather swim with the dolphins than just watch their antics, head to Dolphin Quest. The dolphin center specializes in various dolphin encounter programs, including Dolphin Family and Friends, Trainer For a Day, and even Trainer for a Week. The trainers will teach you a bit about the intelligent animals while you hang out in the pool with them. Watch the dolphins perform their best tricks, touch them, feed them, and take pictures with them. When they take off swimming, see if you can keep up to these speedy creatures. You'll want to invest in a photo of you and your new dolphin friend at the end. Dolphin Quest is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our , custom trip planner Edition.

  • Recommended though expensive experience for children. Trainers are knowledgeable and nice. Do it once to get it off the bucket list.

  • Made a reservation for the next day dolphin experience for my little one, but right after booking confirmed just found out I made an mistake on booking on the big island not Oahu. And it already passed the free cancellation deadline. So I emailed the customer service after the office hour. Michelle Campbell(VP of Animals ) replied within hours (at 10pm), helped us cancelling our booking and refunding us promptly! Really impressed by the outstanding customer service!! Hopefully we will have another chance to enjoy this wonderful dolphin experience in the future.
  • Absolutely enjoyable! I did not want to leave. I have a new respect for the trainers at Dolphin Quest and the Dolphin family in the lagoon. The entire program is based on respect, preventive care, love, and fun for the dolphins. I should of did this YEARS ago. I had a beautiful experience. 😇🐬🐬🐬💜💙💜💙😇
