Actually, what 24 said is true. I was just reading a few articles on it last week, after a tip off from Cracked.com. ALL TRUE! About 14 people a year in the US are raped by dolphins every year. If you're interested/horrified take a gander, Google "dolphin rape".
I think overcoming a fear is a good activity for a honeymoon. For me, it creates a sense of security between the couple. What am I talking about? I'm not married; I don't know what I'm talking about :) But seriously, I would rather overcome a fear with my new husband than stay in the hotel the whole time.
You get no say in choosing where you go on your honeymoon? Isn't it your money too?
If it involves aquatic animals like that, wouldn't there be a beach nearby that you could enjoy instead?
Do you /have/ to go swimming with the marine life? Try fighting your fears. You probably wont regret it.. Unless a shark bites off your leg but that's unlikely to happen.
It is sort of scary at first. But what can help OP, is; if there are Dolphins, there are no sharks around. I think what scared me most at first was the fish.... I am terrified of 'swarming' creatures, so while we snorkelled the boat captain decided to give someone the fish food to swim around with. That was terrifying at first, but the beauty of it sort of smooths out the want to get out of the water as long as the food keeps a bit of a distance.
Be very very rough the night before and scratch your husband. That way of they attack they will go after him, since it was his idea to bring you somewhere you are afraid to go.
