Do's & Don’ts for a Dolphin Excursion, Waianae, Hawaii

If you’re planning a trip to Hawaii, you probably have a number of things on your to-do list. Ocean lovers and marine biology enthusiasts should not miss the opportunity for a dolphin excursion with Dolphin Excursions Hawaii, located on the west coast of Oahu. To prepare for your day with the dolphins, review the following do’s and don’ts before your trip.

Do: Learn about marine life.

While the focus during a dolphin excursion may be on the dolphins, you can learn a number of things about these animals and Hawaii’s unique marine ecosystem. For example, in Hawaii, the most common type of dolphin you will see is a spinner dolphin, which can complete seven full rotations when spinning. Doing a little research beforehand will make it easier to identify ocean life and understand other facts the boat crew will share with you.

Do: Take photos for memories.

Dolphin excursionYour dolphin excursion will be something you will talk about for the rest of your life, which is why you’ll want pictures to preserve those memories. Listen to the crew as they inform you of certain areas more populated with ocean life or historic landmarks you may want to capture.

Don’t: Feed the wildlife.

You may be tempted to feed some of the animals you encounter; however, this is not only illegal, but also harmful to ocean life. For example, if dolphins learn to associate humans with food, they may come close to the vessel where they’ll be in danger of churning boat propellers.

Don’t: Touch the wildlife.

Hawaii’s strict laws limiting interactions with wildlife are meant to protect these wonderful and often endangered creatures. Your dolphin excursion crew will follow legal guidelines to ensure all wildlife encountered is undisturbed, and will advise you to do the same. You’ll be able to appreciate dolphins and other ocean life from a safe distance.

Make your trip to Oahu unforgettable with Dolphin Excursions Hawaii. From the three-hour boat ride and snorkeling experience to lunch at Spinners Café, this tour is perfect for children and adults alike.
