I've had many incredible experiences with Dolphins, the first was for my sister's 21st birthday surprise in the Florida Keys. The second was a dolphin touch experience in Jamaica, and finally the most recent one was in Cabos San Lucas. In Cabo I was able to go underwater with the dolphin and French kiss it!

 Swimming with dolphins! This has been something I have wanted to do since I was a little girl. Growing up, dolphins were my favourite animal, tied with horses of course, and I have always wanted to touch a dolphin to see if they really did feel like rubber like everyone says they do.


I love animals and if I could I would pet all of them, but I don't like getting bit by wild creatures, so I stop myself. Having the chance to actually touch a dolphin would be a dream come true. My 6 year wold self would be super excited and my 26 year old self would still be the same level of excited. In fact just thinking about it is super exciting!  


After: Well I did it, I got to swim with dolphins!! I did it at Six Flags Discovery Park at the dolphin discovery. It was really neat, there was a group of 4 of us.

First we had to get wet suits on. The change rooms were beside a tank for their seals, which was pretty neat. Then we had to walk through a lot of the park to get to the dolphin area. That part was a bit awkward because we were all in skin tight, black wet suits, which were tight and very hot. When we got to the arena, we knelt in a shallow part of the water and got to meet 2 dolphins, Duke and Merlin. The encounter included learning a bit about dolphins, touching them and interacting with them. The interactions included 'dancing' which you just put your arms out and the dolphin would rise out of the water so it looked like you were dancing. I also got to kiss him and one of the coolest parts was riding on it's back. To do that I hoped in the water with my arm out and when it swam past you just wrapped your arms around and held on. It was super cool! I found out dolphins really do feel like smooth, wet rubber! I am so happy I got to do this, it was incredible.


You can check out these 2 videos, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oqjTc4ra-0c (me riding the dolphin) and https://youtu.be/8fNOrMYU4XU (the dolphin spashing us). Sorry they are vertical and not horizontal, I boyfriend took them.

 I remember vaguely the first time I swam with dolphins. It was in Mexico with two of my cousins. The second time I did it was even better! It was in the Dominican Republic with Vicky. It was a way better situation because it wasn't a completely enclosed environment. We got the opportunity to do so much with the dolphins in what felt like such a short amount of time.

Bit of an early start for this one. So the water was a bit cold at 7 am. 

Though the time got cut short because an other traveler got hurt (thankfully, he recovered), this was one of the most surreal experience.
