While there are many ocean adventures already on offer in Oahu, you would think this would be an easy section to curate, but in fact it is not! Following our mission of sustainable travel, we are very careful in our selection of adventures that really do not harm long term viability for the ocean and its creatures, while at the same time are fun, educational and exciting.
We no longer recommend ANY “Swimming With Wild Dolphins” tours. Thank you NOAA for raising our awareness of how wild dolphins react to these tours. The large numbers of people tours attract create significant stress for these wild ocean mammals and put their survival at risk. Oahu is one of the islands halting these tours as of early 2017.
See below for recommended options that keep our oceans and sea creatures safe today and sustainable for the future.
