Where the wild things are – dolphins

Tobago - dolphinIt seemed for the longest time that everyone had seen dolphins in the wild except me.

I wanted to desperately see some – knowing that they would be just as exciting as seeing their bigger neighbour the whale.

The main attraction at any aquarium and even the star of television shows, the dolphin has everyone on their side.

Meandering along on a snorkeling trip off the coast of Tobago, I realized how much I wanted to see a dolphin when one of the guides mentioned it might be possible.

But I was so enamored of the shoreline from the boat, that I was too busy looking at the beaches and small hideaways.

That’s until the boat captain, said its your lucky day!

And off the boat’s edge came up one dolphin, checking us out. And soon there were several dolphins, swimming by the boat and making us all excited with their presence.

I couldn’t’ remember anything about the past – one glance of this fast swimming creature in the open sea erased all my memories of seeing them in aquariums.

We watched, snapped photos, pointed at their antics, and then were happily satisfied by their visit. Now to find Nemo!
