Wow, so yeah... swam with dolphins this morning. You strap on a snorkle and goggles, some fins and wetsuit, and swim around with your head looking down so you can see them swim under you, around you, coming so close you could just reach out and touch them if you wanted. I didn't touch any though. I'm guessing there were about 50-100 dolphins swimming around. Often there 200 so I'm told. Pretty incredible.
In my glee I kept gulping salt water trying to dive and forgetting to take a deep breath before going fins up and so yeah, wasn't quite inept at the snorkle thing and ended up dry heaving by the end of the morning from taking on so much salt water. We had about 5 separate chances to swim with them. The boat would pull up near the dolphins and then we'd all jump in. You had to move quick because the window of opportunity to see them was often short. All in all it was pretty amazing and saw and swam with a good many.
