Another chat with one of our talented photographers, Nate! He’s always fun to have on board and if you’re a fan of water sports and want to try some on your Hawaii vacation, he’ll give you some insider tips on where to go free-dive…sounds like fun!
Hi Nate, so tell us what inspired you to work with Dolphins?
I LOVE wild animal photography and the ocean so this was my calling.. I feel more at home with the dolphins than I do in my own home!
That sounds awesome. So in your opinion, what makes Dolphins magical creatures?
Dolphins are pretty much the smartest animals on the planet with thier ability to use 25% of their brain! Humans only use 11%!! So I would call that pretty magical.
While swimming with these smart creatures, what’s the highlight of the tour for you?
Group photos! Everyone is so happy from the tour they really come out and get great pictures with a fantastic crew
Those are great photos! What is one place that someone should see while they’re visiting Hawaii?
Manoa Falls, its an easy hike and a half hour trail through the jungle, just amazing! Here you can swim, dive, and just enjoy the beautiful nature that Hawaii is known for. You have to see it with your own eyes!
I agree. So what’s your favorite thing to do when you’re not swimming with Dolphins…
Swimming with dolphins lol! I love to freedive on my days off so I’m constantly in the water and do so any chance I get.
A bit of advice for visitors to Hawaii/Oahu?
GET OUT OF WAIKIKI! see the real hawaii, Waikiki is great for tourism and food and fun, but Hawaii has so much more to offer than large shopping centers..
Nice! So if you’re hungry from all of the adventures, what is your favorite place to eat/drink in Oahu?
South Shore Grill by far! has the best fish tacos on island! and it’s inexpensive! Local restaurants are always the way to go!
