Hey, Raffles...relax, you are among friends. I think the only objection to your post is that you offer nothing positive. You have had some good comments before and I think someone is just looking for a little useful information.
The dolphin swim is pretty cool but I agree paying to have them swim around you sounds kind of dull. I have seen travel channel stuff where they actuall propel you through the water. Heck, I would propell you through the water for fresh fish!
I am assuming that part of Port Arthur doesn't suck?
Hello! I did the dolphin swim in Tortola and LOVED IT!!! We got to feed, pet and ride the dolphins, it was well worth the money! If I knew how to attach a picture on here I would, but I don't know how! But I highly recommend it!

Thanks everyone for both the good and the bad. I just have questions and I tried searching but usually found stuff from diffrent areas not in Tortola I was told diffrent areas have better experiences then others. This is more for my girl then me.. I have swam with dolphins in the wild while surfing and THATS and awsome experience.. no fish needed I just want to make it well worth it for her. Avenger thank you for actually doing the experience in tortola. I noticed one was an encouter and it specifically stated about a platform then noticed the "swim" one. Glad to know your actually in the water with them.
Chef sorry if this has been covered alot before but like I siad I never noticed a thread about tortola specifically.
Raffles sorry about the "big help" line. A little elaboration would have been better then just saying its dumb.
I enjoyed watching Maruk in his rookie year in Oakland, CA and was heartbroken when the Seals became the Cleveland Barons and then disbanded. Meloche was a class act on a horrible team (in Oakland and Cleveland) which of course, has nothing to do with this thread.
I'm looking forward to snorkeling in St. Thomas, as does half the world. I snorkeled in Hanamu Bay, HI this past summer and noticed the water has grown considerably less clear over the years due in part to all the tourists, like me, and their sun block mixing with the water. Has there been similar clouding in the Caribbean?
How can you have this discussion and not mention Bobby Smith? And has anyone felt that proprietory fan-ship for the Wild that the old 'Stars engendered? (Sorry lost my head here--must be because I will be snorkeling in St. Thomas (St. John, actually) in 7 short days).
