Mother’s Day Dolphin Facts

Our Mother’s Day Dolphin Watch Adventure didn’t encounter dolphins, but we had a great time snorkeling and we got to do a LOT of sailing on Alala. Between the nice breeze, the vibrant coral, the turtles and fish we saw, we had a wonderful day on the water.
Dolphin Fact of the Day:  According to researchers, Spinner Dolphin Mothers nurse their Calves for as long as a year to a year and a half. Once weaned, the little juvenile dolphin  will still stick close to Mom  — and due to the fluid nature of the Spinner Dolphin pods,Mom and her offspring may keep in contact for their whole lives! Happy Mother’s Day!
