Spinner Dolphin

Stenella longirostris

Spinner dolphins are common on the Kona coast of the Big Island, especially at Honaunau. They often delight visitors with acrobatics, spinning as they jump far out of the water! They are friendly toward divers and easy to photograph. Often a school of dolphins comes to the surface, jumps out of the water for a while, and then descends rapidly. Swimming with spinner dolphins is a magical experience!
