Aloha, I'm Aaron. I have been in the tour/instruction business for the better part of 25 years. In all these years, I have learned 2 things, 1. Safety always comes first . 2. It is truly an honor to share my passion for the experiences we will embark upon. Our adventures will include history, amazing scenery, and my favorite, close up contact with a variety of local wildlife, including but not limited to swimming with the dolphins! Some folks have called me the dolphin whisperer as we often see them, I, however, cannot guarantee that we will run into the pod. Mother nature is a fickle woman. I can guarantee we will have awesome adventures and alot of fun. This experience does include paddleboards and snorkeling, I am also a professional certified lifeguard, for added safety on the water, aloha!
All organic re-fueling snacks will be provided along with hydration and great story swapping time at the end of our trip.

Nature can be brutal , remember reef safe sunscreen and water. If swimming with the dolphins is a priority, I strongly recommend the 8 am tour!( I cannot guarantee dolphins)Mahalo!
