Hawaiian spinner dolphins travel far from the coast during the evening to find their dinner, and then come back to shallower waters during the early morning hours. The calm and clear waters of Kealakekua Bay are a welcome playground for these marine mammals, and you can now see these dolphins in the wild, and then go snorkeling at one of the most beautiful snorkeling spots on the Big Island.
