Excellent prolonged encounter ! Lucky beggar

Just one thing though Manos ! I do think a more subtle pink ( toe ) nail varnish would suit you better

Great stuff Manos - I have yet to see a dolphin off the South Wales coast but there are plenty out there. Last year there were 2,000 spotted in 1 pod.

That weather makes me very jealous!!!

Great video Manos, you're very lucky! Not so lucky with the weather though, but my wife tells me it's better today !

My boat is over in Evia (Ag. Dimitrios/Almiropotomos) at the moment, but if you're going to be passing that way this summer, pm me & I'll get in touch. I've never met an Assistant Astronaught before!......

Hey Nck will most certainly do! I usually go to Petalious, Marmari and sometimes Kastri. Never been to Almiropotamos although a friend of mine has a huge villa there and has invited me many times. Any way as I said will buzz you when we are in Evia.
Weather today forse 5 and it looks like that it will be the same most of the weekend.

Try his for the weather in the Greek seas http://www.meteo.gr/SailingMapF.asp and this for significant wave hights http://www.oc.phys.uoa.gr/page2.html

Dolphins are fantastic when you are on a RIB, they are so close you can almost touch them. Usually plenty around during the summer and sometimes they play like that, its one of the things that keeps me pourin' the fuel in
