Swimming w/ dolphins

Only 45 more days until I leave for Ft. Lauderdale for 10 days!! I can't wait!! I am overdue for a vacation!!!

I've been wanting to swim w/ dolphins my whole life, and can't wait to do it!! I googled it, and found a couple of websites, but I am sure there is more then 2 places that do this in FL?? I found one is Key West, and one place in Miami. Anyone know of any places that do it in Ft. Lauderdale or anywhere near Ft. Lauderdale?

Miami isn't too bad, it's only, what, like a hour and half drive Key West is like a 5 or 6 hr drive, so that's out, because we'll be staying in Ft. Lauderdale.

Anyone done this before??? Was it as awesome as it looks? I've been obsessed with dolphins since I was a kid. I got one of those HUGE blow up dolphins for the swimming pool when I was 6 yrs old, and played with it in the pool everyday like it was a real damn pet or something

I took my wife to seaworld in Orlando and she did the "trainer for a day" program. She worked an entire shift working side by side with the trainers and all the animals including the dolphins. The smile on her face after that day was priceless.

seaworld also now has discovery cove which is specifically a swim with the dolphins thing




HDTony.... Damn glad to meet you!

That's really cool, Gixx. Have a great time down there.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

"It's like the story of the hippopotamus." I know why Gixx wants to swim with dolphins, it's cause they're snout looks like a soft, shiny penis.

I'm not sure it's 1.5 hours from Ft. Lauderdale to Miami. I think it's more like 45 minutes but I haven't been down there for like 6 months, it's hard to remember. Either way, it's well within the range of acceptable driving distance.

Never swam with dolphins but I did swim with sharks, sea turtles, sting rays and barracudas in BVI. Best vacation ever! 2nd only to walking into Thailand and having a Thai soldier point an AK47 at me.

That sounds awesome!!!!!!! Too bad Orlando is like 3 hrs from ft. lauderdale

I'm sure there is something in ft. lauderdale, but if not, at least Miami does, and it's actually cheaper then what I thought. It's around $250 a person for a 1/2 day. I wonder if they will let you skip the tour bullshit and just swim with dolphins the whole 4 hours.

I love when he's first speaking in that high pitched voice, then clears his throat

Also, Brockman getting killed with the beach ball is classic too.
