    ... and thus must make ourselves as interesting to the dolphins as possible, by being 'dolphin like' (your interpretation of this is as good as ours). We swam in circles, made eye contact, dove down (very difficult when you are basically a human neoprene float) and made dolphin entertaining sounds through our snorkels. It all sounds a little strange but it works. We saw far too many dolphins to count during the 35 minutes we spent in the Pacific Ocean. It was an ...

There were other fish and amazing kelp in the water so was fun regardless. We got a significant refund cause it apparently was not the encounter they were used to having.

    ... sperm males (too cold for the females they stay in warmer, more tropical waters). Also saw lots of pink, dusky Dolphins - somersaulting and jumping in& out of the water! As an added treat we also saw a number of seals and also a number of albatross flying - which from a distance looked like large seagulls. Major catastrophe when we got home - we hadn't put a bottle of wine ...
