Swimming with the fishes….and mammals

Snorkeling, actually. We were paired up with some scuba divers who had left the boat to dive and when the crew saw the dolphins they went all out to catch up to the dolphins. We caught up with a pod of 7 Bottle-nose dolphins and immediately jumped in with snorkel, mask and fins. The dolphins were cruising slowly so I was able to keep up with them for about 100-150 yards. Swimming directly under me about 20 feet just above the ocean floor, I saw one of them turn on its side and look right up at me. That was really cool!

Every afternoon a stiff breeze picks up. The kite-boarder above was catching big air.
