In case we meet dolphins what, should we do in order to reach them?
If you are lucky and you meet dolphins on your way, you do not have to start shouting or screaming. We know it’s amazing but in order to keep them close to you, you must travel at a low speed and keep calm. Never try to swim with them because dolphins are cute but still very big animals and they will probably hurt you by accident. So, stay in your boat, travel slowly in parallel with them, and enjoy!
