Dolphin Connection - Programs to swim with wild dolphins in the Azores and Bahamas in a group with expert guides

Amanda Stafford is the founder of The Dolphin Connection and has spent many years exploring her fascination with dolphins and the marine environment. She has worked in the field of cetacean research and inter-species communication. Amanda is also a graduate psychologist , bodywork practitioner and works internationally as a business/life coach. Above all she brings to the Dolphin Connection an infectious enthusiasm and passion about dolphins and the ways being in their presence can inspire and empower changes in how we live our heartfelt values. “Over many years swimming and interacting with wild dolphins, I have found a relationship with life that is less and less interrupted by self-doubt and negativity. There is more and more fun, love, abundance and freedom."
Website is dedicated to giving accurate information about 'friendly' or sociable wild dolphins (and whales) around the coastal waters of Ireland - i.e., those cetaceans who from time to time choose to interact with humans.. Dolphins include Fungie the Dingle Dolphin, Dony and Dusty.
