Dolphin Swim in Tortola (Tortola, British Virgin Islands)

British Virgin Islands- Tortola- Dolphin Swim 1

12.2.2012- Dolphins are the smartest, happiest animals I have ever encountered.  They are so playful, and generally just seem to enjoy attention.  This was one of my favorite days on a cruise we took 2 years ago.  We decided to skip the cruise excursion and go on our own and do a full swim, and it was so worth it (and probably cheaper than the “encounter” they were advertising).  I did wonder about if it was fair to keep them in captivity and did some research ahead of time, but from firsthand experience, they seemed to be in great shape, well fed, not overworked, and to have plenty of room to play and swim.  Maybe they shouldn’t be in captivity at all (you could probably argue for that for any animal), but we definitely had a blast with them.
