Swimming with Dolphins!

One of the highlights of our trip was Powell, Blake and Bennett getting to swim with dolphins!

We went to Dolphin Discovery, and the boys were able to get in the water and pet the dolphins...and then each was able to do 2 swims with them.

The first time they put their arms out to the sides, and the dolphins came up behind them, the boys grab on to their dorsal fin and the dolphins pull them in the water.

For their second swim, the boys lay flat as a board with their arms and legs stretched out...the dolphins swim up behind and put the tops of their heads on the bottom of the boys feet and push them until they come out of the water!

There are not many places in the world where you are able to do this, and we wanted them to have this experience!


  1. What an amazing experience that must have been for all of you!!!!!!

  2. How fun! It looks like the boys had a blast!

  3. Wow! How fun! I hope to do that one day....were the boys nervous?

  4. What a wonderful experience! It looks like they had a great time.
