    Spinner dolphins are now my favorite animal!!!!! They’re so impressive to watch! We found a whole “pod” of them jumping and spinning through the air. They looked like they were having so much fun! such intelligent creatures. I also saw 2 turtles while snorkeling. Just wow, Hawaii! You win

    The captain explained that it’s not legal to actively look for dolphins and run up on them and I was worried we wouldn’t see them. But, low and behold, they came to us! It was so much fun. But the snorkeling really was the highlight. My son doesn’t swim and used floaties and loved it. He stuck his head in with mask but didn’t like the snorkel. He would have to look up every few seconds to breath but he still loved it. Your crew was very accommodating and patient with us.
