WHEN I SWAM with dolphins in Mexico, I remember feeling super underwhelmed the entire time. The dolphins didn’t seem that into the experience either — probably because, as I learned upon my return, many dolphin-swim-and trainer attractions do not treat their animals well. I now try to avoid animal-based activities while traveling, unless I know they are rehabilitation centers, sanctuaries, or promote wildlife tourism in a responsible way.
This video is not only visually stunning, it also shows how these animals belong in their natural habitats. They look so happy and free, and don’t mind swimming alongside the GoPro camera.
