Surfing with dolphins is a truly unique experience. But, beware! Dolphins are primarily large, wild animals, to which we humans like to attribute properties that are only conditionally applicable to them. However, one can roughly say that dolphins have proven to be very philanthropic in many traditions and many a drowning person can tell the story of a dolphin that has led him to the shore.
Dolphins are fascinating creatures and there is hardly anyone who does not dream of making contact with them in the wild.
Their upward-pointing "mouth corners" make them seem as if they always laugh.
Unfortunately, dolphins are still tortured and kept in captivity today, because one would like to believe that they also smile about this fact.
Dolphins are marine mammals and belong to the group of toothed whales.
They are usually between 2 and 4 meters long.
The bottlenose dolphin easily reaches this size and is even considered more peaceful than dolphins.
The nimble marine mammals can reach a speed of up to 50 km / h and are excellent jumpers. Their jumps are less playful because they serve to make them even faster.
Dolphins live in schools with up to 1000! Animals and communicate with chattering, clicking and hissing sounds, as well as physical contact and their ability to echo-locate. Dolphins feed on fish and always hunt in groups.
As already mentioned, they are known to have great social skills, which is why they are also used for so-called dolphin therapies for very sick people.
The successes prove us right. The dolphin seems to be able to touch and move people with a very special sense.
Their play behavior and their trained but also quite instinctive care in dealing with the sick, in many - for example, autistic people - blocks and helps them to a new quality of life.
Dolphins are creatures worthy of protection that not only inspire and move us surfers.
Literature also put one or the other monument to the mostly peaceful marine mammals.
The two attached links are very important to us. Of course, there are many other supportive associations and organizations on the Internet who strive to protect these wonderful creatures.
