After the writing retreat, Rachael Jayne and Datta treated us to a dolphin adventure with our host, Hawaii Experiences. We rode a bus halfway across the island to the west side of Oahu where dolphins are known to hang out. Our group took up two boats!
On the Island Princess, Amanda blows the conch shell. We do a ceremony to honor the sea and its creatures. A capable crew helped us get outfitted to swim in the open ocean. We were able to see dolphins swimming below us and beside us. The sea turtles were a special treat. Thanks to the staff photographer of Hawaiian Experiences for most of these pictures.
