Day 6 Swimming with the Dolphins

Day 6 Swimming with the Dolphins

This morning started out as an early one, we had to be in the lobby at 7:30am....eek, but well worth it. It was about a 45 minute drive to get to the place. My husband and I went at different times so we could take pictures. My hubby went first, I couldn't wait for my turn.
First you got in the water and the dolphins swam around you, so you could pet them. Sometimes they would swim behind you and push you.
Then they did a little dance.

Make a little love (sorry had to throw that in)

Then was the fun part, you had to lay on your stomache and the two dolphins came from behind......get your mind outta the gutter people.
Then they pushed their noses against your feet and pushed you across the water....very cool.

Now it was my turn, we went in groups of 6, in my group there was myself, a lady from England and everybody else was from Denmark, not a word of English. Of course the dolphin trainers didn't speak dutch so it made it interesting.Then they got you to line up in a row and the dolphins swam at us and at the last second jumped over our heads, I was secretly thinking it would be funny if someone(not me) got a flipper to the back of the such luck

Then I got a kiss, how sweet. This photo was $25. The other option was a CD with 30 pictures and a 5 minute video for $250US.......uh considering the dolphin swim itself was $300 for me and the hubby we decided no on the CD.
Then it was time for my dolphin push
It was an amazing day, sadly tomorrow is our last day, then Saturday morning we had to be in the lobby by 5:30am.
