After saying goodbye to your new dolphin friends, climb back on board your ship for the rest of the day’s activities. Before the day is over, you’ll enjoy authentic Hawaiian cultural arts, snorkel through one of Hawaii’s best coral reefs, and slide down your boat’s waterslide! There is no better way to spend a day on the water.
