What is Dolphins and You?

Join us on a magical journey, and we'll encounter playful dolphins in the wild. Journey of self discovery.

Richard

A long time ago, I read a book on Dolphin Connection. A couple of weeks later, I had my first experience, swimming with wild dolphins. It was very spiritual and surprising, to say the least. From that moment on, dolphins had a personal existence in my heart, and I knew they had some magical power. I fulfilled with a desire to share the same experience with others.
