I understand that normally a swimmer only gets 1 movement a turn and getting on or off a boat and jumping off a tile counts as this movement. But what's never really made clear is if you can use a movement from the red dolphin aid (move your swimmer 3 sea spaces) to hop in a boat once you are in the same tile as a boat.

If you dig through the older posts here there is I believe a thread on this question with an answer by the designer I think.

I was looking through those and I got discouraged because everyone wanted to argue about how movement was defined, I would just like a clear answer to this question.

I cant find the specific thread. But I believe the answer was thus.

You can use the dolphin to take the swimmer XYZ spaces say to a boat or a shore - THEN move them onto the boat or safe shore with their movement. But you cannot use it alone to move the swimmer onto either.

Just follow what the tile says...sea spaces. Neither land nor a boat are sea spaces.

Or by the graphic-- the dolphin will get you there...to the boat, and then you have to climb aboard the boat (separate movement).
