“Socotra, I swam with dolphins!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2011

It has always been the dream of my life. And Socotra, the island of many wonders made my dream come true. I have swam with dolphins!! I saw them during a boat trip to Shoab beach, often you can meet them on that part of the coast but they are always in a hurry. They jump, play, eat..but this time they were looking for somebody to play with..and it was meee!! no word can describe my joy and feelings while they came closer smiling at me.. for 10 minutes they came and went in a dance of joy and happiness.
I'm currently living on the island for some months so feel free to contact me if you want to know more about it.

Socotra where all the dreams come true!!
