Do you need safety tips for your next dolphin cruise?
When you go on a dolphin cruise, there are many things that you need to remember. Activities that involve any attempt to interact with sea lions, whales, dolphins, porpoises, or seals are not supported, condoned, and authorized by the National Oceanic and Atmosphere Administration or the National Marine Fisheries Services. It’s because dolphin human interaction could lead to a negative effect on the behavior of the dolphin, which is something that’s considered harassment by federal law. If people will swim with resting dolphins, the latter may stop their resting state in order to check or avoid the swimmers, which will disrupt their behavioral patterns. But there are ways for you to view dolphins while they’re in their natural habitat safely and responsibly without disturbing their feeding habits or their behavior.
