There is a sense of magic when dolphins turn and look up at you as they catch a ride on the bow of your boat, or when you dive into the clear water and hear the ocean filled with the sounds of humpback whales singing. And if you are lucky, and catch them before they settle in for sleep – you may be able to swim with wild dolphins…every day.
Top-rated Wild Side Tours (rated #1 on Trip Advisor on Oahu, Hawaii) is for sale – and if you have the passion, resources, and desire you can take advantage of a rare opportunity to have a life most of us only dream of.
Owner Tori Cullins is retiring, having fulfilled her dream of a life focused on the whales and dolphins of Hawaii, in order to pursue another; rehabilitating horses. She rescued a pony that was left to die in a garbage dump, and is now inspired to continue helping horses in need.
Having decided to sell the tour business she co-owns with her husband Armin, she is now looking for the right person to take it over. She is in no hurry to sell, and is looking for someone with a genuine passion for whales and dolphins to take over the tours that she has so carefully put together.
These curious false killer whales were filmed with the boat’s GoPro camera (wait for the grin!).
Her top requirement is that the buyer is conscientious in how they take visitors to swim with the wild dolphins, and must be willing to alter the tours if the dolphins show any sign of avoidance and the guests appreciate this sensitive approach:
“My family spent an amazing morning swimming with a pod of around 40 dolphins and then we swam with lots of delightful Green Seas Turtles. Elizabeth and Jake were very friendly, welcoming, knowledgeable and most importantly very protective of the environment and the welfare of the dolphins and turtles. We observed many other tour operators in the area who did not show the same respect. We were provided with a lovely “local” style lunch and all the equipment supplied was of good quality. Overall it was a great experience and I highly recommend Wild Side to anyone.” Trip Advisor review.
