I just swam with the dolphins today for the first time in my life! :o)

Kealakekua Bay, Big Island, Hawaii

Wow, what an experience! It appeared that I needed to be able to swim a
long distance as they moved away and came back to me. It seemed like my
athleticism was rewarded because everyone else swimming and boating in the
bay thought that the dolphins had left so I was the only human with the pod
for about an hour.

I pretended like I was "singing" them a low-tone-lullabye and the dolphins
swimming deeper down appeared to "hover" below me swimming at the same speed
as I was.

One pair of dolphins played a game with me where they would catch a floating
leaf in their mouth, let it go and catch it on their right flipper (I was
cruizing along with them on their right). At first I thought that that the
leaf landing on their flipper was accidental until they did it several
times. Then they "dropped" it and let me pick it up and play with it. :o)

On several occasions I was swimming along side 2 and 3 dolphin groups and
the dolphin on the right seemed to move over and "allow" me to catch up and
swim between them in formation.

On many occasions the entire pod of 20 to 30 dolphins surfaced beside and
all around me including one with a baby. Clicks and squeaks galore! :o)


Jumping out of an airplane at 14,000 feet, seeing the Pyramids of Giza, and
even successfully surfing pipeline was nothing in comparison to this.


Now I finally know what it is like to swim "with" the dolphins as opposed to
just seeing them in the water. I feel like a new person, like I have been reborn.

Does anyone have Joan Ocean's e-mail address and contact information? I am
suddenly re-energized to do some more work with "dolphin tantra". My only
previous experience was playing with dolphini Kutira withOUT the dolphins...
