Dolphin Watch: Save $10 on Adult tickets when you book online!

Book our Child Cruise Free Special on our new Winter Whale & Dolphin Watch package now through March 31, 2020!

Dolphin Star is splashing into the whale watch season with a new cruise for the new year! Now through March 31, guests can enjoy our new morning Winter Whale & Dolphin Watch Cruise with a chance to see playful dolphins or majestic Humpback whales.

Humpbacks migrate to Hawaii’s warm waters every winter, and there’s no better place to spot them than aboard the Dolphin Star. Cruise along the beautiful Waianae Coast and bask in sunny skies aboard this educational Hawaiian eco-tour.

Our friendly Naturalists will engage passengers with insights on wild dolphins, whales, green sea turtles and other marine life. Children can also participate in our interactive kids program and receive a souvenir activity book.

In addition, guests are guaranteed to see a Humpback whale or dolphin during the cruise, or they receive a free return “Mammal Check” to try again (meal and transportation optional).

The Winter Whale & Dolphin Watch Cruise is $72 per adult and FREE per child (age 3–11) with each paying adult. Guests looking for a full day experience can also upgrade their package to include a delicious Gourmet Burger Buffet Lunch, which is $89 per adult and $10 per child. To book our Child Cruise FREE Special, call (808) 983-STAR (7827).
