This was one of the most magical moments that I have ever had and to be able to share it with my kids made it truly a beautiful experience that my family will never forget. And neither will the many passengers I spoke with aboard the Condor Express. One woman even told me that the trip was worth 3 times the price and I have to agree with her. We were literally surrounded by hundreds if not thousands of dolphins. Mothers side by side with their new born calves. Young males showing off for us by spinning in the air. The bigger, older males racing our boat was, without a doubt, my son's favorite. The boat does not have propellers that can hurt the beautiful mammals.
The interior of the boat is very comfortable. The cook was making delicious breakfasts and lunches for anyone who felt that they could use a warm meal. My kids ordered 4 dishes and ate every bite! Something about being on the ocean really makes you hungry.
I also met a nice student from Santa Barbara University who took some great photos of my kids which will be posted in this article.
The Condor Express was what my kids call Big Fun and the staff was truly informative and most of them are volunteers. It really warms my heart to know that people love to give so much of themselves and are dedicated to making a difference as well as broadening our minds on sea life and our environment.
