scraph That looks like a great time! I'm glad they had such a positive experience with them. I wanted to give you a word of warning though, just in case you believe (like some do) that dolphins are always playful and kind. Sometimes they get "frisky". If you try to push them away when they get "frisky" then they can get angry ... and you won't like them when they're angry. Divers, as it is information included in their lore, are advised when they get "frisky" to let them wear themselves out and not to shove them away. It may sound off color for this discussion but ... it happens and I wouldn't want anyone to be hurt or killed by handling it wrong. Remember, they are still wild animals. Be wary of them just like other wild animals.

Dolphins playing with our kids Norman Island, BVI

We anchored Galeaux, our chartered Voyage 500 cat in close near the dock at Pirates, The Bight, Norman Island, BVI.

Our 3 teen girls were swimming off the boat when a dolphin, then two joined in and played with them for a good 20 minutes!
They were cruising on their backs letting the kids pet their bellies and seemed to get even more playful with the chatter of the kids!
