okay... so serious question... is he just swimming with them? or is he trying to have sex with them? I think we're all wondering it, right?

Yeah he’s just illegally swimming with them. Typically you need to have like a guide and all sorts of things

No, to go tripping with a dolphin. You need a special dolphin to trip sit with you both

Trip sit on my face at least.

Yeah I'll be honest I don't know what the fuck I was talking about 4 hrs ago

You have to have a guide to swim with animals or it is illegal? What is the illegal part?

I suppose personal safety and disturbing rco systems?

I’d rather everybody who actually wants to swim with dolphins have a safe and fun time, as opposed to idk, getting eaten by a shark or drowning or something.

On top of that we don’t want any ACTUAL dolphin fuckers to get a free pass.

Sure, this guy is more or less harmless but who knows what kind of freaks a “NO RULES” type approach would attract.

It’s less about human safety and more about not disturbing the animals. When whales and dolphins are constantly being approached by humans, it stresses them out and disrupts their normal routines and behaviors. They start to avoid areas where they’re being approached, which is a problem when those places are important feeding and calving grounds. When it’s just one guy it’s not an issue, but it’s a big problem when a lot of people do it. Hence the law.

People like you are why modern society sucks. Just adding arbitrary bullshit rules because youre worried about other peoples safety. If you are worried about the risks of swimming with dolphins dont do it. The guy in the article did nothing wrong and should have been left alone.

I’m not a law maker. I never claimed to be.

What makes you think I’m the one who decides what is and isn’t allowed?
