Dolphin Encounters

Getting to spend some time with dolphins has become a signature activity in Hawaii. Seemingly carefree, these marine mammals may appear out of the blue and put on a show for you. A number of Big Island tour boat companies understand the urge that many humans have to get in

the water with dolphins and provide the opportunity to do so. You can observe wild dolphins on boating and ocean rafting tours.

Another way to spend some time with dolphins is to sign up with a facility for a meet-up. A variety of educational programs are offered for couples, families with little children, adults, seniors and more.
