Well, they weren’t in the wild, but it was still amazing!
...My 18th birthday present: swimming with beluga whales.
First off, it’s amazing…who cares if it’s indoors.
Secondly, everyone in the world should do this because it’s a great opportunity. How many people get to swim with belugas?
Seaworld is brilliant :] They make me pretty dang happy.
What they do is they take you behind the scenes to where they keep harbor seals and the beluga whales…I was privileged to see the newborn harbor seal pup which was amazing! You see how they feed the animals and where they prepare the food, then you get to go out into the beluga habitat. You sit on the side and learn about the whales, feed them, scratch their tongue and such…then if the trainers are comfortable, and you are too, you go for a little dip :] It was so awesome.
The water is around 50 degrees though, I should warn you. But you get a super sleek and sexy wet suit to look super sleek and sexy in.
