One Direction's Louis Tomlinson and Liam Payne Swim with Dolphins in Miami (PHOTOS)
The boys of One Direction have spent a majority of the past year on the road, so when they have some down time, they like to have a little fun. Sometimes that fun includes marine life.
Louis Tomlinson and his girlfriend Eleanor Calder spent their Saturday morning swimming with dolphins at the Miami Seaquarium, while bandmate Liam Payne spent quality time with Shamu at Seaworld Orlando.
While both singers got up close and personal with dolphins over the weekend, Tomlinson also bonded with a few stingrays at the Trek Reef Encounter. The 20-year-old donned an underwater helmet as he grinned from ear-to-ear for the cameras.
Where did the boys jet off to next?
After their aquatic adventures, Tomlinson and Payne joined fellow bandmates Harry Styles, Niall Horan and Zayn Malik for British funny man James Corden's wedding to Julia Carey back in the UK. Olympic diver Tom Daley tweeted a photo with One Direction from the reception.

Columbia records describes the track as an “energy packed song, mixing rock undertones with smooth harmonies, about living for the moment.”

And it looks like the boys are just as excited as the fans for the single's release. "Cant wait for the single to come outtttt," Payne tweeted to his more-than six million followers on Twitter over the weekend.
As for the video, the boys were snapped on the set of their wet and wild music video making a splash. The bizarre party setup included a pool, trampoline, teepee, hay barrels, an inflatable microphone and a giant inflatable banana.
The boy band's sophomore album, Take Me Home, is due on Nov. 13, 2012.
