We got to rub her belly!

If you love dolphins, this is the encounter for you! Wow, I am amazed at how big the dolphins are in person rather than seeing them in the wild. She swam right up to us and we got to rub her belly and feed her fish. Then we also learned hand signals so she could do some tricks. This was an amazing encounter and would totally do it again in a heartbeat!
