Meet the Dolphins and You crew - Captain Mike

Mike

Port Captain
Aloha, my name is Mike and I am one of the boat captains. Ever since I was a little child, I had been surfing and boxing. As for work, I have only worked on the sea as a boat captain or a crew member. But, I have once played a role of a guy getting chased by dinosaurs, in the movie ‘Jurrasic Park’, filmed in Hawaii.
