We recently traveled to Kailua-Kona, Hawaii where we were lucky enough to swim with, dive with and view a plethora of marine life. Kona’s waters are magical, even healing, for those who enjoy the ocean and its inhabitants (especially if you like the big stuff).
One of the highlights of the trip was swimming with Kona’s wild (not captive, that’s another (sad) story for another time) spinner dolphins. For me, it was an intense experience which was deeply restorative. Captain Nancy Sweatt of Dolphin Journeys was our guide for this excursion. Captain Nancy runs an excellent operation. As an ocean conservationist, she is deeply respectful of the dolphins and their natural habitat (more on this soon).
The video footage below was shot by me and Mr. Reeftraveler.
