About Michael and Melainah Yee:
Michael and Melainah Yee met in 1998 when she first came to Hawaii to be with the Dolphins. In 2002, surrounded by their Ohana (family, friends and loved ones), they were married at sunset by Michael's hanai Father, Kahuna Lanakila Brandt. Their deep personal, some might say magical, connection to the Dolphins was reflected when the Dolphins arrived just as the ceremony began, spinning and leaping out of the water during the entire ceremony! It's this uncanny and special connection with the Dolphins that accounts for their 98% success rate of finding Dolphins on each Dolphin Swim.

Both Michael and Melainah are USCG licensed captains. "China" Mike has been surfing, diving and has captained boats on the Kona Coast for over 25 years and is one of the most experienced captains on the Big Island. He operated the first charter boat offering Dolphin Swims in Hawaii. While in his teens, he became a well known champion surfer in Hawaii and Southern California. He is a complete water-man, and his extensive knowledge of the coastline is unsurpassed. He is as comfortable in the water as most people are on land.

In 1999, Melainah returned to the Big Island for a two month sabbatical from Atlanta - she never left! She is a facilitator who teaches and hosts seminars on attaining self empowerment and remembering who we truly are. She offers Dolphin Retreats, retreats on Hawaiian Spirituality and retreats about the Ancient Land of Lemuria.

Together, Michael and Melainah are Kona's unquestioned leaders when talking about experience with Dolphins. They are known internationally and have been featured on several television documentaries discussing the Human/Dolphin connection.

Perfect Moments in the Islands of Hawai'i
You know them when you see them, when you feel them, and especially, when you play a starring role in them - those instants in time when something or someone stops you dead in your tracks and you're overcome with a sense of wonder and blessed with the joy of discovery. We call them, perfect moments, though they tend to last a lifetime, and it probably won't surprise you to learn that you'll experience more of them in the Islands of Hawai'i than anywhere else on earth.

A perfect moment in Hawai'i can be standing on a charter boat off Hawai'i's Big Island, feeling the warm glow of a volcano as it pours new life into the sea; unearthing the secrets of the magical Nâpali Coast from a helicopter above the Island of Kaua'i; watching humpback whales frolic in the warm, tropical waters off the coast of Maui; swimming with dolphins in the clear waters of Lâna'i's Mânele Bay; riding a mule down the world's highest sea cliffs on the Island of Moloka'i; or riding gentle surf within sight of Waikîkî's towering sand castles on the Island of O'ahu.

Moment to moment, a Hawai'i vacation promises to release you from the ordinary and reintroduce you to the basic necessities of renewal: fresh air, warm sunshine, crystal water, good food, smiling faces, all the treasures of the earth in abundance, and the time to enjoy them all.
