Without repeating what has been mentioned in other threads, almost all commercial dolphin encounter/swim offerings involve dolphins that were the "lucky"(?) ones purchased from Japanese dolphin procurers. The lives of the captive dolphins and cetaceans are not humane. Even SeaWorld is discontinuing their obtaining of any new whales, etc., and supporting those animals remaining until they expire from natural causes.

If you haven't heard of it, check out a little film called "The Cove", which shows the fates of those dolphins _not_ selected to be in purchased for these encounters.
