John knows a lot about the area, and was successful in finding more than one pod of dolphins for us. It was a very enjoyable morning.

John was the most amazing, knowledgeable guide you could hope to have. He was extremely respectful of the ocean and all inhabitants. We were a group of two couples so we had a very personalised excursion. We got to swim with the dolphins several times, manta-rays and we even saw lots of whales. At the end of the excursion we all said that was one of the best days of our lives. I would highly recommend John to all of our friends and family and everyone else. We are planning to go back to Hawaii in a few months and will do this again. Much Mahalo John.

John Float was a fantastic guide. He made the entire activity--maybe our entire vacation. He is knowlegable, patient, and extremely professional. If a friend were going to Kona and wanted me to recommend ONE activity it would swimming with dolphins with John Float.

Review by Michelle Gorton

John was an amazing guide. He is very accomodating and helpful. In the beginning of our trip, he performed a traditional Hawaiian song to call the dolphins, which was beautiful. The dolphins had migrated to an area that was unusual. John was able to find them and we had a life-changing experience. We also saw a mother whale with its calf and was able to get close enough to hear them spout. He gave us an incredible tour. We will be referring our friends to him exclusively.
