United States: Hawaii
The Hawaiian Islands are made up of volcanic activities and the peaceful rainforests. From indigenous marine life and with friendly seasonal visitors, the warm waters of the island of Hawaii are the home of many different marine animals that can easily be found- if you know where to look. The Kona Coast is an amazing place to discover manta rays at night. Thousands of humpback whales visit the warm water of Hawaii between November and March, especially encountered at the north of the Kohola Coast. These marine mammals migrate from seas as far as Alaska and head to the south in the winters. Commonly spinner dolphins swim throughout Hawaii and ride in the wake of your boat. Although the green sea turtles are a threatened species worldwide, the Hawaiian green sea turtles, also called honu, are the most common turtles found in Hawaii. Honus are mostly found at the Kona Coast or resting on the sands of the Kahaluu Beach.
