My beloved TILLY... She is a young juvenile in the Bimini, Bahamas Atlantic spotted dolphin population. She is recognized by a scar above her pectoral fin and a notch in her tail. Many times we swam together… I LOVE YOU, little ANGEL! See you soon again...
Swimming with the wild dolphins is an unforgettable experience. It's a moment where past meets future. The moment of Now. Being a guest in their world is a humbling experience and when they choose to connect with us our hearts are filled with unconditional love. Its a moment of bliss. Dolphin Bliss...
In June 1971, Yvonne Vladislavich was sailing on a yacht in the middle of the Indian Ocean when suddenly the craft exploded. She was thrown clear but the vessel sank and she was left completely stranded. Far from the shipping lanes, there was no hope of rescue. Terrified, she treaded water, awaiting certain death. Then she saw three dolphins approach her. To her astonishment, one of them swam underneath her and buoyed her up with his own large body. Gratefully she held on to the dolphin’s sleek, smooth body. The other two dolphins swam in circles around her to protect her from sharks.
The dolphins carried and protected her through the warm waters for many hours until they arrived at a marker-buoy floating at sea. They left her on the buoy and she was soon picked up by a passing ship.
It was calculated from the position of the buoy and the position of her yacht when it exploded, that the dolphins had carried her and kept her alive through 200 miles of dangerous seas.
