Traveling with porpoise: two Hawaiian spinner dolphins swim through the waters at Pearl and Hermes Atoll in Papahānaumokuākea Marine National Monument. 

Hawaiian spinner dolphins exhibit a “fission-fusion society,” where they fuse into large pods of hundreds as they move offshore at night to feed, then split into smaller groups to rest and socialize during the day. The tranquil, remote waters of the monument are the perfect place for these charismatic dolphins to rest and feed!

  • James: You’ll never guess what just happened.
  • Sirius: You went out in the corridor, stumbled into an inter-dimensional time portal, which brought you 5,000 years into the future, where you took advantage of the advanced technology to build a time machine, and now you’re back to bring us all to the year 7010, where we are transported to work at the Department of Mysteries with telepathically controlled flying dolphins?
  • James: No. Lily kissed me.
  • Sirius: Who would ever guess that?
