Concept of Nai'a Dolphin Healing Program is,  "Anyone can go to Hawai'i regardless of disabilities".
 Nai’a means dolphin in Hawaiian language.

This program includes therapeutic activities such as swimming in the ocean, dolphin encounters, aroma therapy massage, music thrapy, and so on.

Medical staff members and volunteers will be travelling together to support you, so you can have lots of experiences to the fullest safely and comfortably. For family members to enjoy their time in Hawaii as well, we have optional respite care times. There will be local staff members and volunteers, so you may as well enjoy some cultural exchanges!

We can assure you a safe trip with medical professionals that may be difficult to have on individual bases. Please join us!
