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

To promote cultural and marine awareness, Dolphin Star is proud to offer Educational Cruises year-round for Hawaii’s public and private school students and teachers!

Aboard our morning Wild Dolphin Watch Cruise, children in grades 2 to 5 can enjoy a memorable Hawaiian eco-tour complete with sunny skies, crystal clear waters and beautiful views along the Waianae coastline. Dolphin Star’s 149-passenger, open-air catamaran is specifically designed for dolphin viewing, and is also powered by eco-friendly hybrid engines, making it an environmentally friendly excursion vessel.

Students will have a wonderful time looking for wild dolphins and other marine life, while learning more about these friendly and playful marine mammals from our crew of certified Naturalists. Students will also love participating in our interactive keiki program, and can take home a souvenir activity book to remind them of their adventures!
