Spinner dolphins are often seen in the channel between the three Hawaiian islands of Maui, Lanai, and Molokai and the view from above the water is breathtaking.


Maui PanoramicIn addition, Spinner Dolphins are spotted along the southeast coast of Lanai and from the beach at Hulopoe Beach Park on Lanai. Because of the white sandy beaches, this unique species of dolphin appears quite frequently and can often be found in a state of rest.


The dolphins are normally in small pods of 20 to 100, but the video below shows more than 300 spinner dolphins. As you will see, they love to jump into the air and spin! No one knows exactly why they exhibit this behavior, but it's exciting to witness.
