Swan dive with dolphins

SYDNEY Swans midfielder Brett Kirk had the experience of a lifetime when he hit the pool with dolphins Calamity, Buck and Zip yesterday afternoon.

In a visit to the Pet Porpoise Pool, Brett and teammate Jude Bolton spent some one-on-one time in the pool with the dolphins and trainer Joanne Warnock.

"It was an awesome experience that I'll never, ever forget. I think there's some kind of connection between humans and dolphins that makes the interaction special," Brett said.

"To actually spend time in the water with them and to learn about them was really special."

Chief executive officer of the Pet Porpoise Pool, Paige Sinclair, said the dolphins had just as much fun as the guys.

"I think Calamity really liked them she kept going over for kisses and hugs."
