Off The Bucket List: My Lifelong Dream, “Swimming” with Dolphins

Off The Bucket List: My Lifelong Dream, “Swimming” with Dolphins

One bucket list item that I couldn’t wait to check off was swimming with the Dolphins. On my last trip to Riviera Maya, Mexico, I did just that. I took it upon myself to fulfill a lifelong dream: to swim with dolphins. The driver was gracious enough to take me to Dolphin Discovery Riviera Maya – Puerto Aventuras. Undeniably, I really had to get out of my comfort zone. Wait, that’s an understatement. I can’t swim, so I was seriously scared. However, I had my little life vest, so I was somewhat confident.

When I initially walked in, I was pretty scared, but after the guys spoke to me for a while, and told me how safe it was, I chose the Royal Swim which includes the famous “foot push” with two dolphins, (in my case Amaya and Jupiter) lift me by the soles of my feet above the surface. After that, I grabbed their dorsal fins as they sped me through the water, giving me an exhilarating and fun ride. I have to say I had a blast conquering my fear! My new buddies, Amaya and Jupiter, were especially cute: they gave me a kiss, a hug, a handshake and then we danced together.

I really had the experience of a lifetime as I got up close and personal with these beautiful, amazing animals! Take risks and conquer your fears! Like Marilyn Monroe said:  “We should all start to live before we get too old. Fear is stupid. So are regrets.”
