For those of you that seemed to be grossed out about the whole whale pee and not knowing whats in the water... I sure hope you are not swimming at any beach or any ocean for that matter. Earth is one giant fish/mammal tank. Yes, there are currents and the water is a bit more free flowing, but nevertheless there a fish, shark and whale pee all up in there. Not to mention human pee(for those nasty people that do their business in the water rather than getting out and going to the bathroom). Oh, and lets not forget all the big ships out there that dump their human and food wastes in the water. Trust me, I was in the NAVY on an Aircraft carrier and I know what they dump in the water. It doesnt matter how far offshore they are, the stuff gets into the currents too.
With all that said...a whale tank with a dam good saltwater filtration system should be the least of your worries. The trainers are healthier and in a lot better shape than most of us are. Get over it, enjoy life and get a little wet.
By the way, lets not forget about those who want to go to Discovery Cove or those who have been there...Guess what...the were swimming in a "tank" with EWWWWW...dolphin and fish poo too.......like I said, GET OVER IT!
