Some visitors come to our Oahu Hotel to enjoy the gorgeous beaches, the fabulous food, or some of the many exciting Waikiki Activities. One of those popular Oahu Things to Do is participating in a dolphin encounter. The chance to interact with these beautiful creatures is not something that you can do just anywhere, but you will find several spots that offer this adventure near Ambassador Hotel.

Types of Dolphin Encounters
As you begin to plan your dolphin encounter, you will find that there are several types of adventures. Some offer outdoor dolphin encounters where you will board a boat and head to a place where dolphins, sea turtles and tropical fish abound. You’ll then spend some time snorkeling as you enjoy getting up close to the dolphins and other sea creatures.

Another type of dolphin adventure is more controlled as it takes place indoors. For this type of encounter, you will enter a pool where you will spend time with one or more dolphins. An indoor encounter may include swimming with the dolphins in deeper water or just getting up close to them in a shallow pool.

The latter option provides an opportunity for people who cannot swim to still be able to spend time touching and playing with dolphins.

A Waikiki Activity for Most Ages
This Oahu Thing to Do is a fun choice for families. Because there are so many different types of dolphin encounters available, this is an Activity that most family members will be able to enjoy together. Whether you choose a 30-minute shallow water encounter or week-long Dolphin Trainer program, there is something to suit most ages and budgets.

Reserve Your Dolphin Encounter
Advance reservations are not usually required, but it is still a good idea to book your dolphin adventure as soon as possible. Sometimes the businesses that offer dolphin encounters will sell out - especially during the busiest travel seasons. To avoid disappointment you should reserve your spot well in advance.
