Thanks for the pics everyone
Though far from my normal NC haunts, this is my favorite.
At San Benedicto Island in the Revillagigedos Archipelago. At approximately 6:30 in the morning, first panga on site at "The Boiler", with only me, the dive master and another diver on board - the remainder of our team decided to sleep in. I watched as this group of 6 dolphins came together from their separate activities, gathered in the distance, and seemingly make a conscious decision to come see just what the heck I was. They approached, swimming tantalizingly slow, straight towards me. Heart pounding, I kept praying, "Please keep coming! Closer! Stay together! Closer! Keep coming!" I literally had to "bow up" to get out of their way, as they passed as it seemed they were going to swim right through my chest. I likely could have wrapped my arms around several of them. Made the trip.
