This is the actual “Flipper” from the 1996 movie!
Today, he resides in the Bahamas and brings joy to thousands of people each year when they come just to swim with him.
This “swimming with the dolphins” adventure was one of the excursions available with our Royal Caribbean cruise.
Our last stop was in the Bahamas, so we made our way to Dolphin Encounters on Blue Lagoon Island in Nassau Bahamas.
Talk about “Kodak moments”…
As a lifelong traveler, I like to help people find unique ways to do things that will save time & money — so I write about "outside the box" Travel Hacks that most wouldn't think of. I'm SUPER organized and I love to pack! I've lived in 6 different states (Florida, Indiana, New York, Ohio, Tennessee, and Texas) and have visited every other state in the U.S. — except Hawaii. (Can you say bucket list?) I've been on several different cruises, airplanes, and boats in my life and I currently enjoy the outdoors by bicycling, motorcycling, Jeeping, RVing, camping, or just walking my dogs. My favorite "hobby" is riding on the back of our Harley-Davidson Road Glide traveling cross country — which we usually do at least once each year. We even rode from Tennessee to Alaska once! When I'm not on the road, you will find me at the corner of Good News & Fun Times as publisher of The Fun Times Guide (32 fun & helpful websites).
