Dolphin Dave David Jiménez cited for molesting a whale


After posting a video of himself molesting a humpback whale, the Hawaii Department of Land and Natural Resources (DLNR) cited David Jiménez, 65, with two wildlife violations.

According to the department, Jiménez refers to himself as “Dolphin Dave” on Facebook.

On March 5, Hawaii wildlife officials received video of a man later identified as Jiménez snorkeling at Kealakekua Bay State Historical Park, close enough to an adolescent humpback whale that he could almost touch the whale’s fin.

When an official from the Division of Conservation and Resources Environment (DOCARE) went into the park to begin the investigation, they spotted Jiménez again in the water, allegedly stalking a pod of spinner dolphins. Officials took him as evidence while snorkeling with the dolphins.
