We have a " friendly" Dolphin that we meet regularly on Advanced Courses off the Aran Islands on the West Coast. He will stay with the boat for up to an hour and on occasion, I have been joined by him while diving . Wonderful experience !
However !!! The same dolphin rammed and seriously injured a German tourist who went swimming with him a few weeks ago !
Ties in with the information regularly given out that they are still wild animals and can be unpredictable !!
