  Swimming with dolphins made me cry with joy
Updated 19 June 2002, 09.18
Dolphins
Luci explains why she thinks dolphins love swimming with people.

"I swam with a dolphin last year.

The way that the dolphins were treated was anything but cruel.

They were bred in captivity at Sea World especially for people to interact and swim with.

This just proves the point that not all dolphins that people swim with are captured.

The dolphin I swam with was called Dash and had been living in captivity all its life.

Not overworked

They love interacting with people as if they didn't they wouldn't do anything, they would go off and sulk in a corner somewhere.

The way that they organise it is that every dolphin does one session then has a break.

Also they have over 20 dolphins which means that no dolphin is overworked.

It really was an experience that left me crying for joy, speechless and wowed by it."

Luci, 14, Hampshire
