Sure haven't, but that looks amazing! I have heard some really great things about that place from friends who have been too. You and Paul need to go someday!

Swimming with dolphins is a surreal experience. Last summer I was out in the waves with a pack while I was surfing, and they were just jumping and splashing and playing in the waves. I wished that I had a snorkel and mask so I could see them underwater, and play with them :)

When we were in Florida last summer, Jason and Riley did a Waverunner tour that hypes being right out there with the dolphins. (They can't guarantee it because they're wild, of course, but I guess they take you out to all the usual spots so they pretty much ssee them every time.)

One ended up brushing up against their jet ski. Jason kept leaning over trying to touch it until he almost dumped them!

Thank you, Sam! My eyes have been opened. :( I WILL NOT got there!!
This really got me :
They will never swim in a straight line for as long as they desire; nor will they ever be able to use their speed, intelligence, sonar, and sense of cooperation to catch live fish. By human design these sonic, free-ranging marine mammals, who would normally swim up to 40 miles a day, are confined to a very small space where, for the rest of their lives, they will have to satisfy a never-ending line of people demanding casual amusement.
:( :( :(

The other side of the argument is that people who see and learn about animals up close are much more likely to want to preserve their existence in the wild.

Pretty much every kid who goes to a SeaWorld type park or zoo goes home caring more about what happens to those animals than they did walking in.
