Here is my second post on the plans for my Hawaii trip, coming up this fall. I’ve never seen dolphins the wild. I’ve never seen whales either. I do scuba dive, so I’ve seen some sea turtles. I wanted to do some sort of snorkel trip while we where on Oahu, but I didn’t want to do an overcrowded one. A lot of the ones leaving from Honolulu looked like they had over 40 people on the tour at one time. I’d feel more like a herd of cattle than a girl on vacation.
After some searching on Trip Advisor, I ended up booking a tour with Wild Side Specialty Tours. I booked their Best Of The West tour. My mother won’t be going with me, she hates boats. I’m pretty excited – there were almost all positive reviews. This company only allows at most 6 people on a tour at once and they have well educated crews they are all about conservation.
The tour is 3.5+ hours long and includes snorkeling, whale watching as well as dolphin swims. Hope the weather is beautiful that day! I’ll be sure to take photos as well as video to share.
