These pictures were taken at SEA WORLD in the early 1980's by a guest who used to come in the park on a regular basis. I am grateful for the opportunity to have been able to train these beautiful, intelligent, and incredible mammals. The relationship that is established between killer whale and trainer is very similar to the relationship between dog and owner, and to this day a major part of my training system. Although these were taken 25 years ago, the experience is something that was never taken for granted, and certainly never forgotten.
