Great video. Where do you cruise to see them?

Do you have to avoid them or is it like driving a boat through a bunch of swans and ducks on the Thames lol.

The fender is still looking for a new home in return for some

Dolphins - anywhere outside Stanley Harbour stands a good chance, good days and bad days, if they are about they always come charging over and you can't get rid of them - the only way to escape is wait until they are momentarily distracted and then welly it - once you get over 20 knots they can't keep up, but you need to do it fairly smartly otherwise you get extremely wet if a few jump in front of the boat as the speed comes up. They have superb spatial awareness around the boat - absolutely love being in the middle of a big and playful pod on a nice day.
