Swimming with dolphins in Hawaii

Swimming with dolphins in Hawaii

It’s about 3000 spinner dolphins migrate in Hawaii islands.
Hawaiian spinner dolphins are 1.7 to 2.2 meters, 25 to 75 kilograms.

Spinner dolphins are known for their acrobatics and aerial behaviors. A spinner dolphin comes out of the water front first and twists its body as it rises into the air. When it reaches its maximum height, the dolphin descends back into the water, landing on its side. A dolphin can make two to 5.5 spins in one leap; the swimming and rotational speed of the dolphin as it spins underwater affects the number of spins it can do while airborne.

Spinner dolphins are not really “friendly dolphin”. They usually don’t play with human, they will try to running away from you so please when you find a spinner dolphins in water do not approach them,, just wait they start approach you.
The spinner dolphins sometimes come up to you, check you out or say hello, sometimes they accept you to be in the their pod. When I am photographing spinner dolphin in Hawaii, I see the dolphins front of me then I look at my behind there are 100 dolphins surround me. It is WOW, It is amazing experience.

Freediving mask

New mask! Piranha by Sporasub. This mask came out in 2013. This allows for a reduction of more than 30% of the inner air volume. The field of vision is much wider, approaching to the natural field of view.
The glasses of this mask are thinner (only 2mm) and the overall weight of only 121gr makes it one of the lightest masks on the market. The mask also features great comfort and fitting.

In Hawaii, it is really hard to find something good items in the store. I have to look for always online so that means I cannot try them. Fortunately this mask fit my face really good. I can’t wait to try in water!

I purchased aqualung freediving mask Sphera while ago which is very popular mask in freediving. It is curved lenses provide true 180-degree visibility for maximum awareness while swimming. Lenses are plastic. You need to extra care for this. It is very easy to scratch. by the way this is not a reason I had to purchased another one.

It is CURVED lenses that gives me sea sick in 3 seconds. My husband tried it who never gets sea sick but he said same thing. I could not swim for 30 min. This is really, worse mask I ever tried. I also notice a vision is different too. I thought the depth is only 10ft or something but it is 20ft.  We go that place all the time so I kind of know the site, depth etc but that time with this mask i felt so weird. I don’t recommend this mask who gets sea sick.
