#dolphins #personalgrowth — The Motivational WebTV episode featuring my scuba diving with dolphins as predicted is quite popular. After all, who doesn’t like dolphins? I also played this same video during a full day professional development seminar I ran for an organization yesterday to the same expected appreciation. This encounter with the dolphins was a very special experience for me indeed but the true fact is that this type of life experience and personal growth is very accessible for many people.
There are several places in the world where people can swim with dolphins at specialized centers where they train captive dolphins. I can think of one place in the Florida Keys (where I had my first dolphin experience) and another near Cozumel, Mexico. Even if you don’t know how to swim, there are programs where you can still meet the dolphins in just waist deep water which will still result in personal growth in my opinion.
If you want to get the ultimate experience with these magnificent creatures like I did, then you have to do the dolphin dive in Freeport, Bahamas which is the only place in the world that I know of where you can scuba dive with them in their natural habitat underwater out in the ocean. Of course, you must be a certified scuba diver in order to participate in this particular experience.
I told the group in my full day professional development seminar that if they know how to swim, then this specific experience and personal growth from the dolphin dive is very accessible to them. They just have to become a certified scuba diver which is mainly about taking a course and then flying down to Freeport where they do this specialized scuba dive every week.
I’ve done this specific dolphin dive twice so far and would certainly recommend it as a top personal growth experience for anybody who can swim. And for those who currently can’t swim but has the physical capabilities to learn, I would say that this experience is worth training for as one of the end goals of first learning how to swim by enrolling in local swim classes and then eventually scuba diving certification courses. Scuba diving with dolphins is very accessible to those who are willing to learn what is required for it and the rewards are priceless.
