A Retreat Unlike Anything You've Ever Experienced Before
The Wild Dolphin Retreat in Hawaii is a breath-taking, awe-inspiring, life-changing trip which you will be talking about for years to come!
If swimming with dolphins has been something you have often dreamed of, now is your chance to make that dream come true. Under Jemma’s safe and experienced guidance, you will have the once in a lifetime opportunity to swim in the ocean alongside these beautiful wild creatures, and to totally immerse yourself in their wonderful, gentle healing energies.
There is no other place like the Pacific Ocean and this is your chance to enjoy its unparalleled beauty and mystery even if you have never snorkelled before or lack confidence in open water. Full training and support will be given to allow you to release any fears and to allow you to fully embrace this opportunity to swim alongside, the wild dolphins and other stunning marine life.
Imagine swimming amidst the multi-coloured fish, marvelling at the giant turtles, admiring the graceful manta rays, and relaxing and surrendering to the beauty of the ocean and Hawaii’s powerful energies.
There are a total of 7 boat trips provided over the course of the 2 weeks, each lasting approximately 4 hours in length. We will also be visiting the dolphin’s favourite bays to swim with them in the early mornings and soak in their pure, loving energy. Is there a better way to start your day than that?
Prepare For A Deeply Spiritual Experience
For many people on this trip, swimming with dolphins will be a deeply spiritual experience and a rare opportunity for you to receive their beautiful healing energy.
As you probably know, dolphin energy healing is renowned the world over and has been well documented in helping autistic children come away more communicative and with better eye contact. We hope that dolphin energy will help with your physical, emotional and spiritual challenges.
As well as the dolphin’s powerful healing energy, there will also be the opportunity and space for profound inner work, starting with a very special full moon meditation and ceremony at Big Island’s volcano, to capture the magical power of the moon at its zenith. Led by a local Kumu this is a wonderful moment for deep transformation, as you release the old energies to allow in the powerful new beginnings.
The same local Kumu will also sharing their wisdom and profound teachings about the ancient energies and wisdom of Hawaii and what Ho’oponopono is and what it isn’t. There is a lot of mis-information about Ho’oponopono, so now is your chance to hear the truth and how you can use it in your own life to create positive, lasting change.
Experience The Magic Of Hawaii
There is no other place on earth like Hawaii for its unique healing energies and the magical Big Island has specifically been chosen by Jemma to further enhance your deep inner transformation work.
Not only does the energy of Hawaii help you heal, but it’s also one of the most beautiful places on earth. You will have the opportunity and space to explore this stunning island and prepare to be amazed by its sheer beauty, exquisite landscapes and its magical healing energies.
Meet New Heart-Centered Friends
This kind of deeply spiritual retreat tends to attract like-minded souls, all on a beautiful journey of transformation. It can be anything you want it to be and that means you have the choice to spend as much, or as little time, with the group as you wish. Group numbers are kept small to ensure you have a deeply personalised and profound intimate experience. Many other retreat organisers allow unlimited people which we feel takes away the care and attention given to a smaller group.
This really is a once in a lifetime opportunity, facilitated with joy by Jemma, and the emphasis is on you making your dream come true and having the unique and fulfilling experience you so desire.
This Is Your Retreat.
Swim with dolphins, watch whales, embrace the deep magic of the ocean, soak up Hawaii’s healing energies, let go of the old, meet some amazing new friends, connect deeply with yourself and have the most deeply spiritual experience of your life.

Personal Message from Jemma
“I don’t want swimming with dolphins to be an impossible dream which never gets fulfilled for you. I want it to be a reality for you and that’s why I’ve poured so much heart energy into creating this spiritually beautiful and life-changing retreat. Life is for living one’s wildest dreams and this one is in reach for you right now. If you thought swimming with dolphins was just a dream – think again!
This retreat is particularly personal because in 2012 I was healed by cancerous cells by the dolphins, so I know first-hand just how powerful and transformative their healing energy can be. Creating and providing this retreat fulfils my heart’s purpose and it’s my passion and purpose to bring dolphins to you.”

Jemma's knowledge of the dolphins habits and lifestyles is extensive, and her deep connection with them will truly enhance your experience.

Dates for the next Wild Dolphin Retreat:
4th-10th August 2017
What if I’ve never snorkelled before?
If you have never snorkelled before then you won’t be the only one! Many people who came on the 2016 retreat had never snorkelled before and soon got the hang of it and grew to love it. Full training and equipment are provided and you are monitored at all times in the open water.
It sounds silly, but I’m afraid of ‘getting out of my depth’ in the open water?
There is no fear too silly and again this is a common fear. You do not need to be a strong swimmer. All we can say is that you are in safe, professional hands at all times and this is a wonderful opportunity to break through your fear and overcome whatever resistance you have to being out of your depth. This retreat isn’t just about swimming with dolphins, it’s about deep personal breakthroughs too.
Can I do extend my trip?
Yes you can. Please contact Jemma about this.
Can I book my own accommodation?
Yes you can. We offer a discount for those who prefer to choose their own. The only thing is you will need to get yourself to our condos for our group meetings and also if you want a lift to the boats etc.
Are the flights included?
No. You will need to book your own flights although we can offer assistance with which airlines to choose.
Are airport transfers included?
Yes. After you have booked your flight, please let us know your arrival details and we will make sure someone is at the airport to pick you up.
Can I arrive earlier or stay later?
Yes. If you wish to stay extra days and make more of a holiday out of it, you can arrange this direct with the resort.
Can I bring my partner with me – even if he is not on the Wild Dolphin Retreat?
Yes. Your partner would be most welcome and can stay with you for an extra cost for accommodation only
Can I bring my children?
Please ask as only some retreats are suitable for children.
Are meals included?
Food is not included simply because everyone has different dietary needs and people prefer to choose their own meal times and we wanted to give you the most flexibility and keep this retreat as affordable as possible. We will take you to the local food shops and markets on your first day so you can select the freshest and most local ingredients. There is also a handy supermarket just across the road from your condo. And if you like coffee, we will take to the best local coffee shop which also happens to specialize in macadamia nuts.
Is it expensive to eat out?
If you choose to go for the full lobster meal then it can be expensive. But for everything else it is similarly priced to the mainland.
Are there sharks?
Dolphins and sharks don't get on very well. I have been going to Hawaii for years and never seen a shark. They are around but it would be very rare to see one.
What type of travel insurance do I need?
Your insurance needs to cover you for snorkelling and swimming with dolphins. A suggested company who covers these activities can be found here: https://www.gotravelinsurance.co.uk/about/activities-covered
How big is the group?
10 people maximum to ensure a deeply personalised and intimate experience. Aside from the boat trips, you are also given as much space as you need to do your own thing and create your own experience.
Is it women only?
No! It just so happened that the 2016 retreat attracted all females, but both sexes are welcome. We trust that the make-up of the group will be energetically perfect in all ways.
Do you offer private groups?
Please contact me directly about this - yes we do
What if I don’t want to go home?
This really is the only negative about the whole retreat! But they do say that when you leave Hawaii you carry a piece of it in your heart forever. This experience will be so deep and enriching, it will become part of your soul. It’s something you will never ever forget.
If you have a question which is not answered here, please do not hesitate to get in touch with one of our team who will be happy to help.
