We often encounter Hawaiian Spinner Dolphin on our Kauai Sea Rider Adventure tours! Named for their playful mid-air spins, the Nai’a have the reputation of being the “clowns” of all marine mammals of Hawai’i.
They are known for their friendly bow-riding behavior – but, they are still wild animals and should be treated with respect and caution. Through “Echolocation”: the ability to “see” by sound interpretation, dolphin can determine the exact location of a vessel or swimmer and are acutely aware when they are being chased or surrounded.
Our Kauai Snorkel Tours includes the blessings that nature offers and yet everyday is different. The Spinner Dolphin always bring the passengers and crew of the our Zodiac to a “lighter side” and brings out the playful spirit in all of us!
