When you come on board for our Dolphin tour, you might be greeted by the soft smile of one of our friendly team members, Mieko. She aims to make your Hawaii vacation memorable – let’s hear what she has to say about her life here in Hawaii!
Hi Mieko, thanks for chatting today! So what inspired you to work with Dolphins?
I’ve always loved the ocean and ocean creatures. When I found out about the opportunity to work with the Dolphins and You company, it felt like a perfect job. I could be near the water and see guests enjoying it, too.
That’s great! In your opinion, what makes Dolphins magical creatures?
Dolphins are smart, playful, and powerful. I think they have something magical power that we don’t know about. They make me feel natural and relaxed.
Wow. What’s the highlight of the tour for you?
Definitely, it’s the moment when I jumped into the ocean! When I was dropped into the magnificent sea, I feel one’s existence on earth. We can’t go against the power of nature. And, it is an encounter with Dolphins. I don’t know what to say, but you will also feel something from them.
What is one place that someone should see while they’re visiting Hawaii?
One of my favorite spot is Kailua. Kailua is a beautiful beach town located on Oahu’s windward coast, about 30 minutes from Waikiki. Kite surfers from around the world come here to kite surf. You can enjoy watching their professional skills and even take some lessons to learn on your own!
We know you love the water, so what is your favorite thing to do when you’re not swimming with Dolphins?
I enjoy sailing with my husband and friends in our boat. The ocean teaches me many things. Sometimes the Dolphins chase us! The sea breeze makes me refreshed.
Sounds amazing! How about a bit of advice for visitors to Hawaii and Oahu.
Don’t plan, don’t think too much! You want to be here to relax. And bring water wherever you go!
For sure! Mieko, what is your favorite place to eat and drink in Oahu?
My recommended restaurant is the Chart House. You have a harbor view to watch the sunset into the ocean. It’s gorgeous and romantic. They also have live Hawaiian contemporary music, and the food is good, too!
