    Swimming With Dolphins In Misamis Occidental

    An experience of a lifetime!

    As a child, I always wanted to learn how to swim and play with dolphins in the sea. I used to envy those actors in movies, trainers, and marine biologists who get to encounter these wonderful buddies.

    The place where we got our dream come true was far from Manila - in Northern Mindanao. Yes, we had to pay for airfare, lodging ...
