Spinner dolphins Spinner Dolphin

Latin name: Stenella longirostris, Hawaiian Name: Nai'a.

Dolphin "friends" may swim along, touching flippers and stroking each other.
Dolphins that appear to be closely bonded may swim in synchrony, twisting, turning and swimming in perfect harmony together.
While none of the dolphins found in Hawaiian waters are considered threatened or endangered, species found in other parts of the world are not as lucky.

Most dolphin images are taken outside Kona Coast, Big Island in january 2012.¨
