Swimming with Dolphins . Hawaii Photographer
I hopped over to the Big Island last week to shoot a family session. Stay tuned for the photos from the sweet Pine Family. :)
I decided to stay for a couple of days and explore since I had never been there before. I love snorkeling, so headed south of Kona to Honaunau Bay. Everyone said it was the best snorkeling on the island, so off I went!
When I arrived, there were a bunch of folks huddled in one area, so I headed over to check out what they were looking at. As I swam over a spinner dolphin shot out of the water into the air spinning around like 5 times! Everyone cheered! It was awesome. The dolphin swam through the crowd of people checking us out and jumping into the air every now and again. My heart was racing. I am obsessed with dolphins. It has always been a life long dream of mine to swim with them. Well, my dream certainly came true! The first dolphin disappeared into the blue abyss. I hovered there waiting for it to reappear again. Then, about 40 feet below a dozen dolphins slowly swam by. I couldn't believe my eyes. Another dolphin came to the surface for air and slowly swam towards me. I could have touched him we were so close! It was a special moment, indeed.
I was in the water with them for a couple of hours. I had a hard time leaving, but was freezing cold by now, so decided it was time to head back to shore. I've been on a dolphin high ever since. Such a life changing experience. Feeling so blessed to spend some time with these intelligent creatures. Loving life!!! :)
