My Swim With The Dolphins Miami Program

My Swim with the Dolphins Miami Program

My adventure to swim with dolphins is one full of suspense and intrigue, fear, excitement and unparalleled exhilaration.

Sebastian Redfish Fishing

Sebastian Redfish Fishing

“What are you fishing for?” the man asked me. “Redfish”, I responded. “Not with that you ain’t, not here”, he said with a smirk. I had caught redfish before on a rod and reel that was half the size of the rig currently in my hand and did not foresee any problems today. Not only that, but I also had a bucket of live finger mullet that I had just caught minutes earlier and I knew they were a favorite…
