It's always been a dream of mine to swim with dolphins. Sadly, the one chance I had to do that when I was a kid, I had the flu. But luckily we're adults and if you've ever had the same dream, here's how to make it happen. First you need to plan a vacation to Key West, Florida. Second, get info and tickets to Fury Water Adventures. At Fury Water Adventures, you can meet dolphin in their native habitat: wild and free in Key West's back country. On the tour, knowledgeable guides dole out fun facts about dolphin lifestyles as you watch them frolic in the boat’s wake. The tour also includes a chance to snorkel the Keys’ famous coral reefs.

So here's how to swim with the dolphins if you're from Kalamazoo:
