Keep it Wild

We are tied to the ocean. And when we go back to the sea, whether it is to sail or to watch - we are going back from whence we came.”

~ John F. Kennedy

This past weekend I went swimming with wild dolphins off the west side of Oahu. It was one of the more incredible experiences in my life.

The dolphins were Hawaiian spinner dolphins, a small but energetic species that love to jump and spin around in the air. Seeing the dolphins out there, in a pod of 50 or so, out in the ocean jumping and swimming felt so right.

These are beautiful creatures and more intelligent than we can know. They live in large family groups and are highly social. They belong out there. They belong in the wild, not in a tank.


The sea has the ability to invoke very powerful emotions within us.

And we must protect it.
