4. I went to Discovery Cove about 5-6 years ago
I have a crappy memory so, bear with me. We did "swim" with the dolphins. They take groups of about 5-6 out and have a trained dolphin come over and you get to do tricks with it and hug it & stuff. And of course there's a photographer taking pics the whole time - that you can buy later.

I went by myself into the ray pool. It's about knee deep and they are just swimming all around you. You can touch them. They felt, well, warty! But, it was so awesome (I am in love with all sea creatures)to just be there with them!

I don't remember if you can actually "swim" with dolphins or rays. That part may just be their hype. But, it you want to get up close & personal with them, it was definitely worth it! They also have a very cool aviary where you can feed the birds from your hand. And that's about all I remember because thanks to the moran I went with, it was the worst vacation of my life. But, I did get to see my fishies!!!
