Aloha! Welcome to Dolphin Excursions
For the past twenty-eight years, I have had the pleasure of guiding guests from all over the world throughout the Hawaiian Islands. I invite you to a well-kept secret: the west coast of Oahu, where you will be treated to a wildlife adventure like no other.
Since 1998, my passion has been with the dolphins and other marine life that frequent this remote and beautiful coastline where often times we are the only boat witnessing the aerial behaviors of the spinner dolphins and humpback whales. I truly love these waters and their inhabitants and look forward to sharing this treasure with you!
I would like to introduce you to some of the people who have helped make this dream a reality, and who I regard as some of the most experienced and knowledgeable naturalists on the island.
Here are the good guys n’ gals that have been with Dolphin Excursions for some time now. Our current crew are Mandi, Tamar, Veronica (Marine Biologist), Alyssa, Flow and our sometime gals, Taylor and Pomai. They are here to tell you ever needed to know about the dolphins and whales. They can also come to your aid with water to keep you hydrated or pull you from the water if needed. All are currently Life Guard and First Aid Certified with years of experience on our team. Like a true super crew, they assist with every part of our business. I know you’ll love them.
We have five captains on staff that have had many years of experience maneuvering Oahu’s remote West side Coastline. Jenna (Marine Biologist) is our Senior Captain. Jenna has been working with us since 2004, beginning as crew and stepped it up as our senior captain. She has also crewed a vessel throughout the Atlantic and really knows her way around a boat…and a good joke. Captain Alexa “Lex” (Marine Biologist), Captain Don, Captain Tamar and Captain Mandi are here to give her a break. All of our captains started out as crew and made their way to the drivers seat. They also still ride shot gun from time to time, still crewing for us.
Our reservation staff is lead by Operation Manager, Lisa (Marine Biologist) who runs things when I am not looking. Lisa has been with us since 2004 and started as crew along with Captain Jenna many suns ago. Lisa is assisted by Mandi and Kim. They are ready to assist you when you call with questions or concerns about our tour. When you are ready to book, they will get you all set up to join us.
I hope you enjoyed learning a little about our crew. After sharing an unforgettable Dolphin Excursion, I’m sure you will appreciate them almost as much as I do!
