So long and thanks for all the fish (A dolphin’s Tale)

5 Jun

One of our All-time-favourite songs is ‘So long and thanks for all the fish’. We discover it in the opening of “A hitchhiker’s guide to the galaxy” (best part of the movie from far). This marvelous song tell us the terrible story of how dolphins fleed from planet Earth because of an upcoming crisis.

Everyday we read at the newspapers lots of bad news of spanish financial situation, and our great fear is that dolphins leave us too!!. That would be just too bad.

Sing with us!:

It is forbidden in Spain to swim with dolphins except for experts, but you may see dolphins all over the spanish geography (mostly at water)

1) L’OCEANOGRAFIC DE VALENCIA

Valencia is a beautiful city at the mediterranean Sea which was quite renovated a few years ago, mostly by architect and engineer Calatrava. The most spectacular place in Valencia is the City of Science and Arts, where you can find the Oceanografic.

Valencia

The Oceanogràfic of the City of Arts and Sciences is the largest aquarium in Europe and contains representatives of the world’s main marine ecosystems. Each building is identified with the following aquatic environments: the Mediterranean, Wetlands, Temperate and Tropical Seas, Oceans, the Antarctic, the Arctic, Islands, and the Red Sea, as well as the Dolphinarium with 24 million litres of water and a depth of 10.5 metres.

Dolphins at the Dolphinarium are adorable. They play with kids, dance, jump…they seem well treated and in shape. And pretty happy too (always smiling), so we hope they’ll stay with us.

2) MUNDOMAR in Benidorm

Benidorm was once a peaceful town with a nice, soft sanded beach. Then constructors came and built big buildings and made the perfect beach city (if you want to feel lost in the crowd under impersonal and old skyscrappers)

As you can see, there’s no place left.

We haven’t been to Mundomar’s dolphinarium, so we can’t help you here.

3) LOROPARQUE, Tenerife

Everybody knows Tenerife. At least, every German and British knows Tenerife. We’ve been there too, and we can say there’s lots to see, not only in Tenerife but all through the seven islands.

Loroparque’s dolphins are jelous, because there’s also a show with…KILLER WHALES! And, let’s be frank, everybody likes better some vicious killer whales, even though dolphins are sweeter. We bet, these dolphins will be the first to flee!

4) Free dolphins in Cádiz!

We are sure that the happiest dolphins are those ‘under the sea’, so if you want to catch them singing and swimming, you can find many interesting offers in Canary Islands and in the Strait of Gibraltar. We recommend you to catch a boat from Tarifa or Algeciras and sail across the sea watching dolphins in their natural habitat. According to a recent study by the University of Seville, 15 species of cetaceans (dolphins and also killer whales!) are to be found in Andalusian waters.

So long and thanks for reading us!!!
