Seeing wild Dolphins on your Hawaii Big Island Honeymoon is truly a once-in-a-life-time experience and will make your Hawaii Holiday unforgettable! There are 4 types of Dolphins in Hawaiian oceans: the pacific bottlenose dolphin, the rough-toothed dolphin, the spotted dolphin, and the spinner dolphin. The spinner Dolphins are the most common in Hawaiian waters, so you are more likely to see them whilst looking for Dolphins on the Big Island – spinner dolphins rest during the day in the sandy shallow waters off the Kona Coast of the Big Island. The best place to spot wild Dolphins on the Big Island will be off the Kona and Kohala coasts. Spinner dolphins have four known resting grounds around the Big Island of Hawaii: Makako Bay, Kealakekua Bay, Honaunau Bay, and Kauhako Bay. Spotting these dolphins may be easy but that doesn’t mean we should always be disturbing them – dolphins are protected in Hawaii and it’s important to let them rest during the day in their sandy bays (between 10am-2pm).
You may happen to see these spinner dolphins on other various boat tours and trips and your captain’s will point them out to you – spinner dolphins are also known to swim alongside catamaran boats where you will be able to see them up-close and personal without disturbing them in their natural habitat. If you are wanting to swim with the amazing dolphins on your Big Island Hawaii holiday, then booking a Dolphin Snorkel tour to in Kona is a far more dolphin friendly way to view these amazing creatures compared to visiting their resting grounds. Dolphin Snorkel tours are very popular and get booked up quickly so we advise booking this when you book your Hawaii holiday – our expert Travel Advisors here at Charter Travel will be able to help you pick the right tour for you! Also, if you don’t fancy swimming in the open ocean with dolphins you can also participant in a dolphin encounter at the Hilton Waikkola Village hotel!
