How to Swim with Dolphins in Hawaii
The ocean is a truly incredible place, and while visiting Hawaii, taking advantage of the ocean and everything that it has to offer is a must. From a snorkeling adventure to a dinner cruise, and the action sports that Hawaii is so famous for, the ocean will be a big part of your trip.
From the time you first enter the warm waters of the Pacific, you’ll have a hard time leaving. As beautiful as it is to look at, it is even more fun to play in, and seeing the marine life that inhabits the waters is a thrill each and every time you spot something. A variety of colorful fish, Green Sea Turtles, and predator fish call the oceans home, and Hawaii is lucky enough to have a perfect mix of all types of ocean dwellers in and around the islands. One of the most incredible species that live in Hawaii is the dolphin, and there is a very real possibility that you can actually swim with dolphins, in the ocean, during your vacation.
Following the daily patterns of dolphins is something that Hawaiians have become experts at, and in the early morning hours, pods of dolphins return to the shallow waters close to shore to rest, essentially shutting off half of their brain to sleep. This time is the perfect chance to see them interact with each other, and join them for a swim. As soon as the pod of dolphins has been spotted, jump in and swim above them while they dive, jump, play, and recuperate from a night of hunting.
If you are looking to see one of the most amazing creatures in the ocean, look no further than a Dolphin Swim Tour, an opportunity to see and swim with dolphin in their natural habitat. You will love this adventure, and the once in a lifetime chance to enjoy the majestic Spinner Dolphin in the wild.
Ranging in sizes of 25-100, pods of dolphins are tight knit groups, and in the earliest hours of the morning, just as the sun is rising, this is the best chance of seeing the wild dolphins. Following their patterns and habits makes it easy to find the large pods, and this unique opportunity comes along only once in a great while. Though sighting is not guaranteed, most visitors are able to watch with pure delight as Spinner Dolphins put on an early morning show.
Tours are available on Oahu, Maui, and the Big Island, there is a great chance some to swim with the dolphins. While you shouldn’t expect any close up interaction, swimming on the surface while dolphins swim beneath you is an amazing experience, and something that will make your vacation one to remember. It is important to remember that on adventures such as this, we are entering their home, and the ocean is vital to the Hawaii Islands, so please treat the ocean and its inhabitants with respect.
