Steve,
In the hopes of helping you relive some of those magical moments again, I have posted a small video of the wild dolphin encounters. http://wetpixel.com/...showtopic=31342

In all its truth, to swim alongside these magical creatures and look eye-to-eye is an experience unlike any other. No connection with nature is greater to me. Whether it's watching a frolicking young dolphin who is not much different than a small human child at play, or bonding with an older dolphin who instills in me the presence of an old wise man, there is no question that there is "someone inside" in these wild dolphins.


Amen brother.

Thanks again for putting the great video up, it proves I wasn't dreaming and you really can keep up with the dolphins. :)

Glad you liked the images, you worked hard enough for them. There are a couple more here.

Cheers my friend,
Steve

It is a shame that Jimmy doesn't run more of the dolphin and reef diving trips. My girlfriend would love to do one, but is not so thrilled about having to sit at tiger beach as penance for swimming with dolphins. I guess it is supply and demand . . .

Hi Mike,
Berkley set this trip up to focus on the dolphins, we spent most of four days with them. We only stopped to dive with sharks when we were too wore out to swim any more. If you give Jim and company a call I'll bet they can make your girlfriend happy.

Have fun,
Steve
