Saving Dolphins in Galaxidi, Greece
Why Go Now: You could tour Greece’s more populated islands and cities, many of which are by now overrun with club-hopping tourists. Or you could opt for a more altruistic, no less adrenaline-pumping experience. Dolphin conservation trips in the Ionian Sea, among 4,000-year-old villages and world-famous archaeological sites, let travelers assist marine biologists in protecting and studying marine life. Weeklong trips are truly hands-on: surveying for dolphins, collecting data, analyzing photos. The only thing better than swimming with dolphins may be saving them.
