We just have to tell you about one of the best Dolphin Watch Adventures we’ve ever had. This past Thursday, we encountered a pod of Spinner Dolphins that numbered somewhere around 250 or 300 about a mile north of Kawaihae Harbor. We watched baby dolphins attempting to spin alongside the boat, and the adults showing them how it should be done! Since the pod was so big, we found ourselves surrounded and no matter which way we looked from the boat, we felt like we were part of the pod. The Spinners stayed with us for more than 15 minutes, as we motored slowly north.
What a day!!!
Ocean Sports offers Dolphin Watch Adventures departing from Kawaihae Harbor at 8;00 a.m. on Sundays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays, and we depart from Kauna’oa Beach fronting the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel on Wednesdays and Saturdays. But…this Adventure is only offered thru the end of November!
Dolphin Fact of the Day: According to NOAA, the population of Spinner Dolphins around the Hawaiian Islands numbers around 3300.
