The Hawaiian name for dolphin is nai'a, and refers to most dolphins found in Hawaiian waters. Personalized, unhurried excursions with knowledgable crew, and limited passenger counts make our encounters unique.
HAWAIIAN SPINNER DOLPHIN - the most acrobatic, if they are awake!
PANTROPICAL SPOTTED DOLPHIN the most acrobatic, consistently
BOTTLENOSE DOLPHIN - the most personality (good or bad!)
ROUGH-TOOTHED DOLPHIN - the strangest, almost...
STRIPED DOLPHIN (Stenella coeruleoalba): Sightings have historically been infrequent.
FRASER'S DOLPHIN (Lagenodelphis hosei): Have only recently been documented within the Hawaiian
Islands, during a 2002 cetacean survey.
RISSO'S DOLPHIN (Grampus griseus): Although considered rare in Hawaiian waters, six sightings were made during a 2002 survey.
Our wildlife tours focus on education and conservation so that an interactive relationship can be maintained in the best interest of both humans and dolphins. We strive to foster admiration and deep respect for these wonder-ful marine mammals.
