What if the “Hokey Pokey” really is what it’s all about?

Ok now on to Swimlover’s “Trainer for the Day” experience.

As I said the girls went at different times so the experiences varied just a bit.

Here’s Swimlover in her wet suit



And with her Sea World trainer



Here are some pictures of her Dolphin experience in the DIP area

Here is what was called the “Belly Ride”















Here she gets to “Dance” with the Dolphin











Must be the “Tango”



Just a little something for the girls









Next up feeding the Dolphins

Here they get to reward the Dolphins for their hard work







Swimlover got to go for a “Fin Ride”













Getting to give the Dolphins cues to perform their behaviors

Having them sing





Spin in a circle







Not sure what this was





And just some general shots of the interaction

Here is a picture of the group; both girls had very small groups for the experience



They were getting ready to meet the star of the park Shamu











Who would have thought he was thirsty

Of course you knew he would be hungry





























More Shamu on the next post

They said that the Killer Whales really like Ice















The “Stars” of the show



Swimlover is on the right



After changing back to street clothes and lunch at Shipwreck Harbor which is provide in the cost of the experience, they got to spend some time with a bird







A Vulture to be exact















So after a long day the experience sadly came to an end, but Swimlover was all smiles

Wonderful pictures again! Totally looks like a fun time. I can't wait. The belly dolphin ride is a bit disturbing for me. I keep thinking the dolphin is reverse humping her! The otters are so cute but I'd rather stay away from them.

Thanks so much for sharing these pictures and their experiences!!

Wow! That's awesome!

What a wonderful Christmas gift. Both girls look so happy

I would love to do that on a future trip. Swimming with dolphins is on my top 10 list of things to do before I get too old.

Funny that the whales like ice eh?

There is no way I would have let that bird sit on my arm!

Have I ever mentioned that we have river otters here? We're lucky if we get to see them once or twice a winter.

Here are some shots I took:





I think I may have posted them before



You got some fantastic photos

Memories to last a lifetime

Thanks for sharing.

"Grass is Always Greener"

I could only dream of living where you guys do.

Do you and Grumpy want to Adopt a slightly older Son and his younger Wife?

It's not greener ........ trust me on this!

In fact, it's mostly white you see here


Adopt more kids? Now I know you're nuts. I'm waiting for the day when we have the place to ourselves

OM goodness those are GREAT pictures! what a cool experience! I have to say I was particularly partial to the extremely candid Sea Otter pics! SO CUTE! My husband says they look like wet ferrets and should be callsed "Sea Weasels."

For what it's worth, I'd adopt you all! But nobody wants to live up here in Oreegon

Over by the Rocky Point area they have a Sea Otter encounter that I could spend all day at watching them playing.

Personally I like Oregon

Thanks for reading
