Absolutely worth the time and money

“This excursion is VERY worthy of your time and hard-earned money!
Awesome Awesome awesome!!!! Bring sunblock, a towel, and an underwater camera if you have one. Definitely worth every penny.
My 13 year old daughter had never snorkeled before and the crew (Daniel and Shawn) were extremely patient with her and taught her how. Once she got a hang of it, it was hard to get her out of the water.

What you get:

1. To snorkel amid dozens of beautiful Hawaiian spinner dolphins
2. To snorkel pristine and vibrant reefs
3. To be entertained and cared for by a great crew on a solid water craft

Get here and do this! You won’t regret it.

Captain Nancy and her husband were a pleasure and were kind enough to drop us off in town afterwards.”   – Robert G from CA

Worth every penny

“My husband and I took our 4 teenagers out on the boat. Danielle and Sean were very knowledgeable and hospitable. Lunch and snacks were fresh, cold and delicious. The boat was roomy enough and clean. They tailored our time towards what we wanted to do most and we wanted to be in the water with the dolphins. We had alot of good time in the water with the dolphins. I was surprised and pleased with how many there were. We got great pictures with our Go Pro. We had so much fun that we added an hour for $50 more to do some snorkeling. Captain Nancy and her husband saw us off and met us at the dock. Great day and would highly recommend to anyone!” – Sarah from Pasadena CA

Always amazing ..

“This was our second excursion with Capt Nancy and once again, she did not disappoint. We had a great time, Capt Nancy’s shipmate was a great help and on both trips we had visitors from other countries with us. Last time France, this time Australia. It was great, small group on boat makes it intimate. See you again Nancy and crew. Arick, Valerie and Alana” – Valarie from Poway CA

An Amazing Morning

“Going out with Dolphin Journeys was an incredible experience. We got to see marine life up close and in their natural habitat. Whales swam close to our boat and we swam along with tons of dolphins. Our captain, Nancy, was a wealth of knowledge about marine life. We went with our children – ranging in age from 9 to 14 – and they loved every minute of it too! One of our all time best experiences in Hawaii! A must do!!” – Didden from Morristown NJ

Hawaii Memories To Last A Lifetime!

“Just finished the manta ray tour with Nancy and Pete and all I can say is “oh my god!” once again Pete focused on my 8 year old the whole time and made sure he saw every manta ray that was in the water. It is truly something that anyone that is visiting Hawaii should do. If you want to do it with a company that focuses on customer safety and satisfaction and not profit , then choose dolphins journey! I will be going on the Volcano Tour with Dolphin Journeys tomorrow! Seriously, if you try Captain Nancy and Dolphin Journeys– you will not be able to go with any other company.

Thank you.. Thank you.. Thank you.. for making Hawaii a memory for me and my son to remember forever!!!” – Sheava from Los Angeles, CA.


Touching, Heartwarming, Indescribable!

“Swimming with the dolphins was such a great experience, touching, heart-warming, indescribable! I’d do it again anytime, if only you weren’t so far away! When I tell people about it, either I cry again or both of us do.

Nancy, thank you again for being there for me and holding me. Take care, all of you.”

Making My First Trip to the Big Island, Unforgettable!

“I guess the third is the charm. I did the metaphysical volcano tour With Captain Nancy and my 8 year old son. I was hesitant about this tour because of the length of it but Nancy has a wonderful way of breaking up the time in the car, and the time sling activities. She Took us to a little farmers market where I was able to buy original Hawaiian gifts, a famous bakery where we purchased lunch and took it to the black sand beach . We then went to the museum , learned about madam Pele and did an offering. We went through lava tubes and got to see the amazing glow of the volcano. I’m sure many of you might think you can do this on your own, but the knowledge, passion and teaching that Nancy does is priceless!!!
She is all about quality , and makes sure everyone enjoys, learns And visualizes what they are there to see.
You might be wondering how my 8 year old did on this long tour?!
Well Captain Nancy invited two children Shayan’s age to join us on the tour ! It was a blessing, and for those of you that have children you know what I mean !!!!! He learned and listened when it was time to do so and got to also play, talk and run around with the kids.
All I can say is thank you Captain Nancy for making my first trip to the big island one that I will never forget ! If you ever need a tour of Los Angeles , let me know 😉

Bridge the World of Man and Sea…

“I am so happy that my children were able to swim with dolphins yesterday. It was a special day not to be forgotten.

Thank you for your patience and support as I built up my courage to try snorkeling again after my fear and panic and the reward was the beautiful Manta Rays dancing beside me as I snorkeled.You are such a special person, you make people feel safe and help to bridge the world of man and the sea. And Pluto was amazing.”

Best Ever! In My Whole Life!

“Today was one of the BEST ever. I mean – In my whole life.

We all swam with real, wild, in the big blue … Dolphins. They were pacific spinners and were amazing.

We found a pod of about 20-30 and actually got to swim right next to them, with them. I had the whole pod all around me. On both sides above and below me – I was IN the pod. Totally awesome. Totally unbelievable, but so true. It’s hard to swim as fast as a dolphin even when they’re going slow. I am SO tired. Awesome.

Captain Nancy and her mate Diana were friendly, warm, and personable. They knew right where to bring us and exactly what t do to have an exceptional experience.  It was terrific!!!”   – Lisa Elwardt / Travel for Less

A Memorable and Accessible Day!

“Just a note to tell you how I enjoyed my time aboard Dolphin Journeys! That day I didn’t feel up to taking off braces, getting in and out of water — but ended up having the best view of sea life possible. I sat atop with Jay & could see everything from a bird’s eye view. And we saw a lot: 6-7 whales breaching & fluking, manta rays, and countless spinner dolphins showing off. Also got a lot of information from Jay.

So I sort of test-drove the boat for accessibility. You can safely say that parking is close by, the ramp down to the water is do-able, and boarding was not a problem for me. I chose to climb the ladder up which was not easy – my braces do not easily bend – but there is no “adapting” that AND it was my choice.

Thank you for a memorable day.     – Jean

Awesome Dolphin Experience

“I just wanted to thank you again for the awesome dolphin experience two weeks ago. I was the one who was afraid to snorkel and who felt sea sick, in case you’ve forgotten. You truly made the experience memorable, and I really appreciated how you made sure I wouldn’t miss out on the magic of the ocean, despite my fear. The girls and I ranked that day asthe #1 highlight of our trip. Clearly you have a passion for and a deep connection to those beautiful creatures.

May your important work of helping people reconnect to our natural world continue for many years to come.”      -Lisa L. New York

Thrilled with the Dolphin Experience…

“Nancy, Mahalo for giving of yourself so fully on my day of arrival on the Big Island. I could have left that night after making our offerings to Pele and been thrilled with my trip, but yes, so much more was in store for me.

The moment I saw the dolphins, hundreds of them, including newborn infants, circling, leaping and swimming alongside our boat, I was overcome with the emotion of pure love, and when two swam just beneath me their heads sticking out from under the prow of the boat – obviously leading us on the journey (and I felt they were there for just me!) – I reached down and was so close I could have touched them. Oh the love and the joy of it was almost too much to bear”.       – Linda Wilson

Dolphin Snorkel was Tops!

“We had a wonderful time in all our different places in Hawaii, and your dolphin snorkel really topped off our last full day on the Big Island. We just marveled at what an exciting day we had enjoyed in the water with you. Mahalo!”

– Connor Family

Highlight of our Honeymoon!

“This trip was the highlight of our honeymoon.

Absolutely Magnificent!”

– Sharon & Lenny, Cliffside Park, N.J.

Transformational and Healing…

“Nancy offers a unique and a magical experience that is transformational and healing. We’re definitely coming back.”

– Dr. Doreen Virtue and Dr. Steven Farmer (Dr. Virtue shared her Dolphin Journey story, in her book: “Healing with the Fairies”)

Grin and Relax…

“Thanks for the wonderful excursion for our family. The kids, who do lots of adventure activities, said it was the best experience of the entire two-week trip to Hawaii. We will recommend you to others. Whenever I feel stressed, I just think back on my experience and I have to grin and relax.”

– Carol R., Tekoa, WA.

Life Changing Swim with the Dolphins…

“I have to tell you that my swim with the dolphins has been life changing. They answered my question and have set me on a new and exciting spiritual path! I knew that the number of dolphins that got so close was relevant somehow and that was revealed to me last night! Wow! I do know that I will be coming back to see you and our spiritual friends.”

– Mary Lou

Wonderful Time on the Big Island…

“”Hi Nancy, Thank you so much for such a wonderful trip on Saturday. Eric and I had the best experience — one we will never forget. We had such a wonderful time on the Big Island and plan to return sometime soon. You can be sure we’ll be in touch whenever we’re there — we’d love to go out with you again to swim with the dolphins.”

– Karen ,  San Francisco

Magical, Memorable, Fun!

“I wanted to write to let you know what a truly magical & memorable day we all had with on the Dolphin TLC and all the wonderful animals! The crew were awesome! We can’t say enough good things about each of them. They were knowledgeable, friendly, funand went over and above to ensure that we all had the best time. The kids loved them and continue to talk about our day together.

I believe it was our most magical day in Hawaii. My daughter and I held hands as a group of dolphins rose from the bottom in a funnel like pattern. They surrounded us! She loved the eye contact with the dolphins. Truly awe inspiring for our whole family. My husband can’t stop talking about the two rays we say and what a link to the past they seemed to be. Thank You from the bottom of our hearts for that dreamy day, we will always cherish those memories.”

Sincerely,  -Jim, Mitzi, Avery, Sophia and Keenan Murphy

Dolphin and Whales Touched our Hearts…

“You and your dolphin and whale friends touched our hearts so that our lives will never be the same.   We have reached a new level of consciousness, and love thanks to you and your buddies.

Tom and I can’t wait to visit again next year!!”
