We offer 4-hour shared and private Dolphin Swim Adventures, and a 6-hour Private Dolphin Swim Combo featuring a Snorkel Tour at Kealakekua Bay Marine Preserve (Catain Cook's Monument). Many of our trips include whale watching (seasonal) and a daytime swim with Mantas.

      Experience the magic of observing and swimming with Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins in the wild. We specialize in respectful, educational, and joyful encounters with the Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins along the Kona Coast. This is a small group experience with no more than 6 passengers.

      Our professional team includes experienced and informed guides who pay personal attention to our guests; they are sensitive to your expectations and are able to balance those expectations with the dolphins' needs and tolerance of human interaction to ensure you, and the dolphins, have a great experience.

      Snorkel equipment, food, and beverages are provided. Our guests frequently tell us this adventure was the highlight of their vacation on the Big Island of Hawaii. We hope to see you soon!

What an amazing excursion. Spent a wonderful morning swimming with the dolphins and observing the whales. The trip could not have been better. However, it was a rocky start because someone along the line transposed my phone number and we didn't get the text telling us the meeting spot at the marina had changed. I was irritated but the crew... More

I went with my little sister and my mother. When we got there we had a short briefing explaining everything. The small group we were with was very friendly. The dog was extremely friendly and cute to. The food was fresh and tasted amazing. They had fruit, cookies, chips, and other snacks. There was a bathroom and a hose with... More

WOW!! I LOVED every second my trip! The guides were phenomenal! Saw tons of dolphins, couple humpbacks breaching and many, many humpbacks surfacing! They really took care of us! I loved it and I would go in this excursion again in a heartbeat!

Captain Mike and his deckhand, Aaron, were an awesome tandem and I would highly recommend you take them out for the Manta Ray snorkel, the Dolphin Swim, or both. We did the dolphin swim snorkel on January 19th (and the manta ray the night before). The 2 were very welcoming on board and there was a surprise deckhand helping out,... More

This was the highlight of our entire trip to the big island of Hawaii. About 5 minutes after we got on the boat we came across a pod of dolphins and got to snorkel near by them as well as humpback whales. It was an amazing trip! The captain and crew did their best to accommodate everyone on the boat... More

Possibly the best tour I've been on in all of Hawaii! I've visited the islands many times and always keen to get out on the open sea for some snorkelling or diving. The folks at OneLoveOneSpirit were incredible, so friendly and knowledgeable. I was lucky enough to share my experience with only one other couple, it felt like a private... More

Kit has so much experience with dolphin, their habits and where their hangouts are... and Mirabai added such a sweet spiritual quality to the day. It was so memorable for us. Swimming with these magical mammals is now a highlight of my life. Thank you🐬 Jo-Anne from Vancouver

Captain Kit and mermaid Jan are the bomb (boat= "The Office"). Saw bottlenose, swam with 200+ pod of spinners and a couple of big spotted dolphins and on the way back a humpback whale breached 25 feet in front of our boat. Witnessing this, the passengers in a nearby boat shouted, "Fish on!" A truly magical, surreal experience. Kit and... More
