Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins
The Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins are the smallest dolphins in Hawaii which reach about the size of an adult human and are very predictable in the areas along the coastline where we regularly encounter them. Some days we locate the Dolphins outside a white sandy beach called Makalawena, sometimes in Kiholo Bay or even Ho’ona Bay, but one thing that remains the same is the magic and the mystique of the dolphins are worth the daily element of surprise. Once we have located a pod, we are actually able to enter the water and snorkel and have as many as 300 dolphins all around us. That is where the magic begins. Fun, easy and safe our Dolphin Adventure is truly a memorable experience which will last a lifetime!
