10.09.2016 – Swimming with(out) additives
Swimming without additives is something the dolphins are very good in! Even the tiny small ones slide like real professionals through the big blue. Only the small hops look a bit bumbling. But this is just a question of training. Today we were able to spectate at the lessons how to swim in the bow wave. These small mini creatures, so  is very absolutely frail have to survive in this huge and deep habitat. But luckily they get support from their group.
During the trip at midday we found a real champion of marathon swimming, the Loogerhead turtle, which just checked out a flipper. But she is as well very capable to swim without additives. And on the end who had the flipper on her heel? Check it out on our pictures…
