Wild dolphin swim and whale encounters

On February 20th, 3 people from New Mexico enjoyed another ocean adventure with us at Hawaiian Boating Adventures on our catamaran KULAPA KAI (30ft Grady White) We took them to the beautiful Makalawena Beach area where we came across a pod of about 100 wild (spinner) dolphins!! The first wild dolphin swim of the day happened.
After spending some time near the pod, we decided to slip into the water and had the opportunity to see many of them underwater and on the surface. There were quite a few dolphin babies, some of them just a few days old and some of them a little older and the juveniles were showing off their flips and spins! Ooohs and Ahhs were the sounds of the day!!
The folks were very excited to swim with them in the wild, especially above an extensive colorful tropical reef! It can be a spiritual experience sometimes.
After that, we took the boat a little further North only to be encountered by more dolphins (second wild dolphin swim) and even some humpback whales in the area. One of the whales ended up swimming right under the boat and just sitting there for about 20 minutes. On the way home, we stopped over onto one of the white sand beaches in the area and the enjoyed swimming to shore and doing some exploring on this beautiful deserted beach.
Capt. Eric also mentioned that Hawaiian Boating Adventures offers overnight trips to places just like that one, where people can choose to sleep on deck, in the cabin or even on the beach under the stars.
Hawaiian Boating Adventures also provides a 2 person kayak and a stand up paddleboard for exploring other parts of the coastal area where the boat cannot easily go.
Once again another fantastic adventure in paradise with Hawaiian Boating Adventures on our beautiful catamaran Kulapa Kai!!
