Dolphins everywhere

On our recent fishing trip we had dolphins everywhere.  I can count about 15 in this photo, and we were surrounded by dolphins in all directions.  Of course most of the dolphins were under the surface of the water most of the time, so there must have been several hundred dolphins in this pod.   

I have several times gone on "Captain Dave’s Dolphin Safari” from Dana Point in Orange County, California.  Captain Dave is skilled at finding and photographing dolphins, and he has made some videos that have won awards.  The dolphin encounter that my sons and I had off the coast of Tamarindo was more extensive and dramatic than the dolphin safari trips I have taken in California.

The purpose of our boating excursion was not to watch dolphins.  We were supposed to be fishing.  Our fishing excursion was rendered a success, though, because of the dolphin encounter.  Tomorrow and the following day I will show my two favorite dolphin photos.

This just keeps getting better. What an experience! I can't wait to see what you've got waiting for us. Thank you for giving my days such 'porpoise'.

This is just amazing! I think this encounter would have "made" the whole trip for me.

Wow, great photo. I met a girl recently who told me about swimming with the dolphins. I will be back for more dolphin photo tomorrow!

So envious. We have shark and dolphin watch here, but so few, so far out at sea. I would love to be the photographer here. Amazing images for me.

Dolphins are so playful, but to get this many in one photo, wow!
