Wild Side Specialty Tours on the island of O’ahu is so much more than just a dolphin or whale watching tour because of their passion for protecting marine life and educating the public about the wildlife found in Hawaiian waters. Tori and her team of marine biologists provide an intimate yacht style experience by limiting the number of participants based on safety, quality and respect for the wildlife encountered – and by visiting more remote areas for better wildlife encounters and generally to avoid more crowded tourist areas.
My favorite is the Morning Wildlife Cruise on-board the Island Spirit- seeing the Spinner dolphins is just a special experience as they jump and leap and make as many as four complete spins before diving back into the ocean! With twenty guest maximum on the tour, each person has the opporunity to move about for best photo opportunity, ample dry storage,clean restroom, easy to get in and out of water on the Island Spirit’s staircase ladder,the boat was refitted in October 2011 and looks wonderful, take time to listen to the dolphins or whales (seasonal) on the boats Hydrophone, snorkel gear and flotation devices provided.
In addition they also have a Deluxe Family Cruise and Best of the West Tours as well as other speciality cruises as described on their website.
Besides giving their guest on any of their tours an amazing experience, Wild Life Speciality tours gives back so much to the community, care for the enviroment and a portion of the fees paid for your cruise are donated to the Wild Dolphin Foundation. West Side maintains many green business practices such as safe mooring practices to protect reef and wildlife, recycle, use earth friendly cleaning products, low sulfur diesel fuel, buy locally grown seasonal food items for their best of the west and sunset charters when possible.
