I kayak with dolphins and whales. It's responsible to give them distance, but they often come to me just to say "Aloha" and talk with humans. They are very smart and enjoy human contact - when they can roam the sea!
There is no honor or reason for ANY captive cetacean - look at it as slavery, because there is no difference! CLOSE SEAWORLD and the NEMO DOLPHINARIUM in Phuket, Thailand. Corruption is the only way these torture chambers continue to exist. No honest politician or government official would allow this slavery.
Want to see Cetaceans, see them in the wild. My favorite cetacean experience is the free roaming dolphin in Puerto Princesa, Palawan, Philippines. Auckland New Zealand also has responsible dolphin watching.
Close Sea World and the Nemo Dolphinarium now.
They only exist by corruption!
See you on the water,
