I traveled to Curacao with my husband and another couple. We participated in the Dolphin Swim and it was worth every penny! Watching them up close, getting to swim with them, and do tricks - so amazing! FYI - if you bring a friend with you, they can take pictures for you.

This is a great way to share with one of the worlds most intelligent animals in the world. You get to swim, share and know more about the dolphins up close and personal. Remember to try and book in with previous time.
