I am looking for locations and/or criteria for selecting locations to swim with dolphins. Anyplace on the East Coast of the USA, or the Gulf of Mexico. Searching on behalf of a blind woman who has heard that some places are better than others. Unsure what criteria are useful in making a choice.
Quality of dolphin care, and quality of person to dolphin interactions are primary concerns. Destinations reachable by automobile in the Eastern US and/or short boat rides are preferred.
I found several locations with an online search, ruled out a couple after reading the web page, probably missed finding some others. The list has 4 promising finds, but no idea where to go from here.
