Cruise Ship View Our Tours



Oahu Dolphin Divers offers dolphin watching and snorkeling tours from Waianae Small Boat Harbor on the island of Oahu. During the whale watching season, which peaks January to March, we also offer whale watching excursions.

Oahu Dolphin Divers’ vessel, the South Seas II, is a 38’ Delta located at Pier C in Waianae Small Boat Harbor. There is no physical office in the harbor. Guests will meet the boat in the harbor (parking is free) at either the entrance to Pier C or at the commercial loading ramp.

Our business on West Coast Oahu began in the ’80s with the purchase of a boat by Ken Taylor, as a way to lure his son Mike Taylor back to the islands. Since then, it has changed hands a few times most recently to the owner of both Island Divers Hawaii and Honolulu Scuba Company on the east and south shores of Oahu respectively, Matthew Zimmerman.

What never changes is the beauty of the west side of Oahu. Because of the island’s trade wind weather coming out of the northeast, the west side of the island has the most consistent and calm oceans on the islands and the very best weather for snorkeling tours. If you are staying in Ko Olina, you should definitely come up the coast for a visit, and if you are in Waikiki, it is worth the one-hour drive out to explore this beautiful coastline.


My husband and I had so much fun. The crew was friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Lovely easy snorkeling trip. Mahalo!

Didn't know what I was going to get, when I booked online before the trip, but as it turned out I couldn't have been happier. Great vibes, great memories! I highly recommend them.

Aloha! If you want a real Hawaiian experience I would recommend Dolphin Divers! The owner is super friendly, professional, knowledgeable and answered any questions we had. I rate them a 10 out of 10! My teenage kids had a blast too! Felt more like a Hawaiian adventure than the way the touristy activities make you feel. We’ll definitely be using them again. Mahalo Mike!
