Virginia Shows the Dolphins in the Native Habitat

Dolphin shows are under fire for keeping highly intelligent fellow mammals in a small cave and making them dance for their dinner.  While many humans are locked up in cubicles and forced to entertain their bosses, everyone knows it's not the same. Baltimore's aquarium has tried to solve this by ending the shows and just giving the animals the fish. 

Virginia Beach's aquarium is taking another approach. Each day, they take the guests out on a catamaran to see the dolphins in their native habitat. 

“We have a pretty good success rate because … we have a lot of different populations that migrate through the area,” Alexis Rabon told the Richmond Times-Dispatch. 

Tickets are $20 for adults, $15 for children 3-11.
