Hawaiian spinner dolphins

Kauai. Catamarans, sun, and dolphins. Ok this was amazing. I think I've wanted to see something like this since I watched Jacques Cousteau movies on PBS as a leetle kid. Hawaiian spinner dolphins are amazing. The travel in large pods, up to several hundred members, that travel in a certain area, feeding, etc. In the mornings they hang by the coastline, in water that is about twenty feet deep or so, with a white sand bottom...That is what is pictured here. The water was beautiful, and the dolphins, who saw us coming, stopped what they were doing and swam over and started riding the bow waves. Pretty unreal.
