Dolphin Echolocation - Dolphin Communication

Hawaii Oceanic's below videos are of dolphins swimming who are using echolocation.

Echolocation is a rapid clicking sound, where the dolphins use high frequency sound pulses that bounce off of objects in the water and refract back to the dolphin.

The dolphin are able to interpret the returning sound waves and can "see" the object in greater detail through high frequency sound pulses than the dolphin could see if the dolphins' were relying upon their eyesight alone. 

Dolphin can actually detect density differences in the object and can scan through fish, sand, and even people. 

Sometimes you can even feel the buzzing if a dolphin is close enough to you and is echolocating your body.

We call it being "buzzed" by the dolphin.

Snorkel with Whale Sharks in Hawaii

Captain Jason and the guests aboard Hawaii Oceanic's charter boat, the Pueo Kai enjoyed a rare encounter with a whale shark.

The whale shark (Rhincodon typus) is the largest fish in the world!

Hawaii Oceanic guests saw the whale shark offshore during the Dolphin Dreaming charter boat tour Saturday May 16th, 2015.

Fish like this whale shark remind us of how incredible the ocean is!
