France: Swimming with Dolphins
As one of the few places in Europe to allow you to swim with Dolphins, France is said to guide one of the best experiences to get up close and personal with these creatures. As very intelligent animals, they are near to harmless. One of the most common Dolphins is the Bottlenose Dolphin, which can range between two and four metres in length and weigh up to 650kg and with the need to surface every five minutes, seeing them is almost guaranteed.
