DOLPHINS

Dolphins come into shallow protected waters during the day to get the rest they need to go out and hunt at night. It will eventually be illegal for tourist boats to drop humans in the water with Dolphins, however, unfortunately, this hasn’t been set in place yet. The company I work for, Ocean Joy Cruises already participates in a Dolphin Smart program that sets guidelines for how to respectfully view Dolphins from a non-disruptive distance. Sometimes while snorkeling and diving the Dolphins come up and say hi. These are magical moments and each and every one has brought so much joy to my heart. Listening to the noises the dolphins make underwater while echolocating and the gracefulness of their swimming is an all-time high for me and I’ve been lucky enough to capture many pictures from my experiences underwater with the Hawaiian Spinner Dolphins.
