Dolphin Swim

On the Big Island of Hawaii, you’ll get the chance to swim with and learn about dolphins in the wild.  At SunLight on Water, a premier, eco-tour dolphin charter company, you’ll become friendly with the local underwater residents of Kona- Hawaiian spinner dolphins!  Nothing compares to the hands-on experience of swimming with dolphins in their natural habitat.  You’ll feel a sense of wonder as you propel past these friendly mammals, an adventure accessible only through dolphin tour groups.

Join the crew at SunLight on Water as they take you on a wild and free journey of Dolphin Swims.  With an environmental philosophy of complete respect for the ocean and its marine life, you’ll find that there is nothing quite like this extraordinary event.  The tour begins at 8am (check-in time is 7:30am) in the morning, where you’ll see why this charter company gained its descriptive name.  Relax as you cruise along the Kona coast and get ready for excitement as soon as the crew spots a friendly pod.  Passengers will be briefed on proper protocol for entering into dolphin territory and will also be issued snorkel equipment for maximum exposure to the underwater world.

A completely safe and rewarding experience, this Hawaiian Dolphin Swim will guarantee your vacation’s exhilaration and amusement.  Operating for over 15 years, SunLight on Water has been leading 99% successful dolphin swims to the public.  Not only is this an exciting adventure, it is also educational for the whole family.  With USCG (United States Coast Guard) licensed captains, you’ll receive a narrated tour with inside tips on how to get the most out of your dolphin swim activity.
