Dolphin Dive

interaction- Ronnie, dive- Han Solo & Hector. small flounder, small bottom feeders on tanks. Started with surface interaction with Ronnie and his trainer, making noises and giving demos and rub downs. Ronnie seemed very happy about playing with us. Then out to open ocean with Han Solo and Hector to dive. Han Solo was a wild dolphin who joined the semi-penned colony a few years ago. The first half of the dive the dolphins weren't around much so we swam over the reef. Its not the most spectacular reef. We saw small bottom feeders feeding on some of the tanks. The 2nd half the dolphins chased a small flounder, came right to our faces & swam by for petting! So graceful and powerful! And fast! So cute when they surface for air and look down watching us. 12lbs would have been better do stay sitting on bottom.
