Swimming with the Dolphins in Dubai

One of our ports was Dubai in United Arab Emirates. I had one day to enjoy that I didn't have duty. So a group of us decided to take a trip to go Swim with the Dolphins. Wow, what fun that was. I was so scared at first even though the water was clear. It was salt water, but it was clear. I was still scared. I have been an avid swimmer since I was a little girl but this was something I had never done before.
We got our brief and the Dolphins had been fed before we swam with them. I guess so they wouldn't bite us or eat us.... I don't know......
I was afraid to get in with them as you can see my peers were in first and I was just 'testing the water' before I got in. Then I slid in the water and one of them came up to me and brushed my leg, I freaked out of course, but then after the first person rode I guess I wasn't so scared. Finally almost when our time was up, I got brave and held on to the back of one of the Dolphins and swam around. What an experience. My heart was racing the entire time.
That surely is an experience I will never forget.
