Swim with Dolphins

Swim with Dolphins

This post was written almost 20 years ago. Nowadays there are very few holiday destinations where you can swim with dolphins either in the wild or at water parks such as Aqualand in Tenerife. Dolphin Encounters are about as close as you are going to get!

In June  I’m off for a Dominican Republic Holiday.  At the age of 54 I really can’t believe I’m going to swim with dolphins.

All my life I’ve been terrified of water until I had adult swimming lessons in my late forties going on to take my ASA teaching qualification and then my national rescue award.  Never in my wildest dreams did I think I’d get to swim with dolphins but here I am 8 weeks away (More when I get back!)

I’m staying next year in Tenerife with a really great whale and dolphin trip from Los Abrigos Holidays

The Dolphin Swim at Ocean World looks fantastic and I’ve heard some very good report about how happy the dolphins are to swim with you.  Other people that have had the dolphin swim say what a life changing experience it is and how the dolphins seem to enjoy swimming with everyone.

So wish me luck and more on my Dolphin Swim experience when I get back.
