I went on the morning tour on 8/12/12. Captain Downing and Kim were knowledgable and passionate about all aspects of marine life! We swam so close to the spotted dolphins and floated peacefully with the Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins... I am in

The attention to detail from help with masks/fins to encouragement getting in the water and swimming with Turtles under our belly were great!

We Did the family tour for dolphins, which included snorkling in the ocean to various wildlife. We have four children 13, 10, 8 and 6. Cant say enough good stuff about this trip. The staff was great with the children, the biologist was

We had an incredible time on the Best of the West tour. It was the perfect way to end our honeymoon. We stayed on a few islands during our trip, and our travel agent recommended going to Oahu just for the chance to go on this tour. It was

We went to Hawaii for our honeymoon and one of the few 'must-do's" we had was to swim with wild dolphins. What we got blew our expectations away.\r

This was the highlight of our Hawaii trip. Great crew, sight-seeing and snorkling. We did the two day overnight adventure. Highly recommend staying overnight! Experience views and sea life that you just cannot experience from a helicopter

What an outstanding way to end our honeymoon! Captain Tori and First Mate Kim were spectacular hosts. I highly recommend the Best of the West tour to anyone truly interested in learning about the marine life near Oahu. Kim was outgoing

We did the Best of the West tour August 22nd, and, it is one of the highlights or our trip to Hawaii. It can be your highlight as well because before even leaving the port, the crew finds out what you want out of the tour. With only 6

Have you visited Hawaii, or encountered marine wildlife, where they live - in the wild? Wild Side Specialty Tours is located on Oahu, they offer personalized dolphin excursions, sea turtle encounters, and sunset cruises. They take you out on their 42 foot catamaran for up-close and personal encounters with Hawaiian Spinner dolphins, maybe even a chance to get into the water and swim with them. The dolphins, turtles and tropical fish are not caged in an enclosure, you are actually with them in their own environment! If you are worried about disturbing their environment (like me) don't worry, WSST follows strict environmental business practices and rules to minimize disturbance to marine wildlife and habitats. While having your vacation with WSST you can also be contributing to the environment because s portion of your fees are donated to the Wild Dolphin Foundation for marine conservation and research. If a nature connection is what you seek, let Wild Side Specialty Tours take you on that journey.

Pros: the whole experience! Knowledgeable crew who cared, giving back through active contributions. Rural area away from the city

Cons: Rural area about an hour away from Waikiki (but near Ko Olina), need a rental car to get there.

Marine biologists who care about the wildlife and the rural host community make this an adventure that gives you a Hawaiian sense of place. They have chosen to keep the passenger numbers down on the catamaran creating a setting for immediate friendships among strangers, and to ensure the best experience possible for both people and the wildlife encountered. Wildlife encounters? Magnificent, surreal, safe.

The crew was friendly and professional. The tour was, for us, an enriching and educational
experience. There were only 8 passengers on the boat for our tour.

The highlight of our tour was seeing the dolphins at play, of course, but snorkeling with the beautiful sea turtles, fish and coral reef was certainly a highlight of activities that we have experienced in Hawaii. That turtle cleaning station on the reef was absolutely amazing! At one point, we saw six adult sea turtles and one youngster on the rock, all at the same time!

"Breathtaking" just doesn't fully describe the experience. We would recommend this company to anyone looking for an eco-friendly, wildlife-friendly, and research-oriented tour company.

Pros: High standards, marine experts, safety and comfort

Cons: Hour drive from Waikiki, no transportation, book well in advance !!!
