For many travelers, experiencing a new country or city goes far beyond simply sightseeing from the windows of a tour bus. Excursions filled with adventure and action are attracting travelers in every location. New types of experiences not available at home are very popular. The ability to mix exercise and a love of animals has resulted in many different types of encounters. One, offered throughout the city of Antigua, is the dolphin swim. Swimming with dolphins is a relaxing and unique experience; these sea creatures are both incredibly intelligent and very friendly.
