Hawaii Dolphin Encounters
~Man’s Best Ocean-Dwelling Friend – Poetry in Ocean~
With our marine biologist crew, experience dolphins in depth, not in tanks – but as nature intended them to be, wild and free. Gain first-hand knowledge about dolphin behavior, their ocean environment, companions and predators, and pressing conservation issues.
Hawaiian spinner dolphins feed at night, so you may be entering (or peacefully watching from nearby) their “bedroom.” The most acrobatic of all dolphins, the spinners may be be courting, communicating, resting, socializing, nursing or teaching their young.

Hawaii’s dolphins are not only entrancing and fun to watch, they are part of a complex and fragile ecosystem, including the culture of Hawaii.
Wild Side members have been researching, living, and playing with these dolphins for over 15 years. To guarantee interaction may compromise their resting or socializing periods. If all goes as planned, you will have the option of having a truly unique experience observing the pods behavior in the wild. By working together, we insure that all dolphins will be here to delight us for generations to come.
