Your day starts at Black River at 7am with breakfast. At 7:30am it is time to board the speed boats for an unforgettable outing. After a few minutes of sailing, you will see the dolphins swimming, playing, and jumping around the boats. If you want, you can go into the water 2 by 2 with a skipper and see the dolphins swimming under you. During a briefing, your skippers will explain to you the approach and swimming rules to respect the dolphins and their environment. A snorkeling session on the coral reef will be the end of a great outing. Return is planned around 10am to Black River.

This was a trip of a lifetime and all I can say is these boys did not disappoint. With two girls who were nervous the crew made them feel at home and safe at all times. I highly recommend this
