CBS deems Wild Side as one of the "Top 5 American Whale-Watching Tours"  Author Joshua Horwitz of the must-read "War Of The Whales", awesome book narrating the battle between conservationists and the U.S. military over the use of high-intensity sonar in whale habitats. 

Annette Kaohelaulii (Hawaii's 'queen' of eco-tourism) adds: "Wild Side does a wonderful whale watching tour off of Oahu. A must see for Oahu residents and visitors. One of Hawaii Ecotourism Association's Certified Sustainable Tourism Operators in 2014. This would be a fantastic Christmas present."

“Environmentally Conscious Company & The Best Day Ever” 
My family surprised me with an excursion from Wild Side tours, and it was one of the highlights of my entire life. Dolphins are my favorite animal and I've always dreamt of being able to swim with them. I do not believe in captivity, and I am extremely careful of how I spend money when it comes to wildlife excursions. I would never want to disrupt the dolphins or monetarily support an organization that was doing so. Wild Side Tours was the PERFECT company for us and I could not have been happier with how they run things. It's obvious that they too are passionate about the same topics, and we learned a lot about the issues they face trying to run a conscious company. Our guide was so knowledgeable and taught us a lot about the dolphins before we got in the water. One of the best things about this company is that they accurately predict the path that the dolphin pod is swimming, and they let you get in the water before the dolphins are close to you. This not only ensures that you don't upset them by jumping right on top, but you're in an ideal place to see and swim with them by the time they reach you. We were able to jump in the water two different times with 2 different pods. It was incredible, and honestly one of the best memories of my life. There were over 50 dolphins that we swam with. Our guide encouraged us to swim along side them and have our moment. 

After the 2 dolphin encounters, we were driven to a different areas to snorkle. We saw tons of fish and a few sea turtles. After snorkeling for a long time, we headed back and ate lunch. Wild Side Tours may be a bit pricey but the experience you have will stay with you forever. We were the only ones on the boat, which made the experience a lot more intimate and special. 

PLEASE, if you love these animals try and view them on their terms and with the respect that any living species deserves. I would recommend this company to anyone. Thank you for what you do!!
