Blue Dolphin Tours offers this one of a kind tour comprising a full 7 hour exploration day that we are sure will leave you breathless. Travel up the 'Na Pali' coast where you will get the chance to snorkel or scuba amongst the turtles and amazing tropical fish. As an added bonus you will have the chance to swim in the tropical water close to 'Ni'ihau' the forbidden island of the Hawaiian chain.
Ni'ihau - the Forbidden Island is one of the most interesting islands in the Hawaiian Island chain. Under private ownership, the island is only open to invited guests of the family which both own and reside there. The people of Ni'ihau are known for their unique craftsmanship and their primary use of the Hawaiian language. On this tour, you will get about as close as anyone can get to this very unique island.
Snorkeling vs. Scuba Diving. For those of you who like the water but prefer to see the sights, the snorkeling opportunities already available on this tour will be the perfect choice for you. It will allow you to have a feel of the rich and wild waters of the Na Pali Coastline, and will be a safe and exciting experience for those starting out. For those of you however, who would prefer the depth and immersion of the wild and untamed ocean, or who would simply love to have the experience of scuba diving, there is an option to scuba dive, instead of snorkel. This option will be an additional cost. For beginning scuba divers, be sure to choose the beginning scuba option and for those who are certified divers, you will definitely want to make sure to bring your scuba certification card (PADI) at the time of check in, for verification. Either way, Snorkel or SCUBA, this tour is a great fit for people of varying comfort levels with the amazing ocean waters.
The thought of 7 hours of amazing sightseeing and water adventuring is making me hungry! Well, on this tour we haven't forgotten about that. This tour includes a continental breakfast and a full deli-style lunch. Phew! Have we forgotten anything? I think not. So sit back, relax, and don't forget your sun tan lotion, your sunglasses, and your camera!
Scuba diving is available for both certified and non-certified divers.
