Dolphin Controversy

In response to 145269: Dolphin policy, posted by Kevin Z on Sunday, 24 July 2022, at 9:46 a.m.

Aloha Kevin, That is a very well thought out and articulate response to Dr. D. I too have read that spinner are nocturnal and was surprised by that. Over the past 40 years I have seen them jumping and spinning during the day from many different vantage points along the coast. While swimming across Kealakekua Bay to get to the monument, not actually looking for dolphins, they have come up to check me out. So did I wake them up? If they were so far away that I couldn't even see them, why would they bother to interrupt their slumber to come and say hello to me? Obviously, if they were so far away that I couldn't see them, they would know I don't pose a threat. And if they did think I posed a threat, why would they come check me out when they could just stay hidden? Personally, I don't think there's been enough study on their sleeping habits. They may feed at night, and therefore are being called nocturnal, but from personal observation I know they at least don't sleep ALL day. I would echo the observations in your response to Dr. D. and encourage anyone to re-read what you said and think about it. Personally, I think the dolphins like us as much as we like them and will miss us as much as we will miss them. Mahalo, Harry
