Anyone know if Hanalei Dolphin looks to be reopening soon?

Heading over with my Sis & BIL later this month, and hoped to have our first dinner there like we did on their first trip 10 years ago. Last thing I saw they expected to be open late July, but haven't found much about it since - any idea if it will happen in the near future, or should I just make reservations elsewhere?

Hey! We drove by a couple days ago and it looked closed and like construction work was going on 💜

They had more flooding and even before this last flooding they were not reopening until Sept. It will be a long time before they can open. This is the 5th time they have been flooded out. I am sure their insurance carrier is not too happy.

They just had brand new equipment delivered before the latest onslaught of water. Thankfully they had most of it elevated and it wasn't damaged.

Thanks Emily! Just came across an article in TGI I guess I missed - says they expect to be open in the next couple weeks. Fingers crossed!!

That article was written before the recent storm. I do know they were flooded again. How badly, I am not sure.
