Having seen a temptation sailing brochure with Amazing pictures of people in the water with wild dolphins we were incredibly excited to swim with the dolphins. However, the brochure was very misleading I believe, as the pictures (and description) made it look like you snorkelled in the water with dolphins swimming around you. What actually happened was you were pulled along behind the boat on a rope. The boat feels like it moves extremely fast and it is very alarming to have water rushing in your face. I spent more time attempting to stop water entering my snorkel then looking at dolphins. Speaking of, the water was very murky and I was only able to see a dolphin when it sped very close by. I saw about 10 seconds of dolphins all together. I chose not to swim at the next spot, having been shaken by the first one and ending up seeing lots of dolphins playing and jumping which was great. A few members of the crew (not all) were very patronising, telling us off like naughty children when we didn't get in the water fast enough. All in all a disappointing morning, I would say that the swimming aspect is false advertising and the fact that you hang onto a rope behind a moving boat should be made very clear before booking.
