Besides having beautiful weather almost all year round, the Leeward Coastline where the Ko Olina Resort & Marina is located is the last undeveloped area of Oahu and home to a refuge for albatross, the Hawaiian Monk Seal and other endangered species. From Ko Olina Marina to Makaha, the waters are filled with sea life from spinner dolphins to the spotted eagle rays and everything in between.
The view from your boat is, like so many things in Hawaii, absolutely stunning. There are the Waianae Mountains in the background, the white sand beaches and the bluest crystal clear water you might ever see. There is nothing quite as exhilarating as cruising in the Hawaiian waters, experiencing the wonder of the varied sea life, the salty smell of the ocean and the sun on your face and the wind in your hair – just totally unforgettable.
If you've ever dreamed of swimming with dolphins, Hawaii is the ideal place to do so, especially along the Leeward Coastline and Ko Olina Ocean Adventures and Ocean Joy are the ideal companies to make those dreams come true.

Not only are they playful, but they are extremely acrobatic, leaping out of the water with enough force to lift about two-thirds of their body. Called breaching, it may also include a twisting motion and slapping of their tails on the surface of the water. No one is truly sure why they do this, but it's suspected it may be related to play activity or courtship.
