I went and swam with dolphins *mermaid hair flip* It was hella early (6am drive to get there by dawn), hella windy (mermaid hair in face non-stop) and hella cold (20° but getting in the sea doe) but I did it. We got on a little speedboat and set off from the marina as the dolphins swam out into the open sea for breakfast. Whether or not you get to swim close to them is dependent on luck and skill - if you swim too slow of course the dolphins aren't going to wait around for you. If they're very hungry and want to dive down to hunt rather than hang out, then too bad! The latter was sadly the case for me. I saw a few small pods of spinner dolphins, around 8m away at the closest, before they dove and swam away. Still, it was exhilarating seeing them in their natural habitat and hearing their clicking under water!
