I've encountered quite a lot of dolphins this year. They don't seem to mind the jet ski and since there's no prop it's not too dangerous to follow them.

That was pretty cool too. You're even closed to the water than I am on my ski! What kind of camera were you using by the way?

Not saying anything wrong with going quick etc and then shutting down as soon as you did.

I feel sure same pod that turns up every year..

More good footage!..keep the camera rolling when you're out over the summer.. ;-)
