Volunteers/naturalists from the Wild Dolphin Foundation are onboard every charter. They take photo ids to contribute to abundance and distributions of cetaceans on Oahu, given to Cascadia Research Collective for cataloging and conservation efforts. We are also participating in the documentation of ongoing fisheries interactions with cetaceans.
