What people are saying about Waianae

Amazing time, The tour guides were very helpful and had no problems taking their time with non swimmers and handling a lot of questions. They took us to see several whale pods as well as dolphin pods. They got as close as they could without disturbing the animals and they allowed them to come to us to get some great pictures. The snorkeling was very fun as well, we went to 2 different snorkel spots and swam for around 30 minutes per spot which was a good amount of time and the Lifeguard El stood with Girlfriend for the entire snorkel since she couldn’t swim an El made it fun, safe, and comfortable for her. Everything was as advertised and I would recommend this to anymore. The captain was even nice enough to give my girlfriend and I a ride into the closest town because Uber’s aren’t very plentiful on that side of the island but once we got to the town it was way to catch one. Great experience

This excursion was simply wonderful, grandiose and impressive. At first we were a bit skeptical about the location - completely wrong. Fitting out was quick and friendly. And the captain and the person responsible for snorkeling were very nice, competent and full of passion for the sea creatures. They unerringly found large groups of dolphins that swam with us and that we could observe from very close while snorkeling. We were also able to observe some turtles up close. After three snorkeling sessions at different spots we were totally overwhelmed! AGAIN ANY TIME!

It was a great time! We got lucky and there was only 6 of us on the boat, plus the captain and the other two workers. We got to see pilot whales and snorkel. Unfortunately no dolphins, but that happens.

It was a great experience and staff was knowledgeable and friendly

It was really worth it! One of the Highlights here in Oahu.
