out sibbing with the dolphins

Went out today on the bombard for a bit of makeral fishing and diving. While we were crossing over to the next spot we bumped into a pod of dolphins which was a great sight, we spent a good ten minutes with them as they fed on the makeral and managed a short video.

Those are the days to remember

We sometimes find pods of dolphins up to 200 of them. Often they are Risso dolphins which are bigger than my 4.2m boat If they were the smaller, friendlier, common dolphins I would jump in the water with them like your buddy suggests A really fun day is when you get to see the whales. The photo below was taken a few weeks ago on the California coast. It is a baby (Probably 25') Grey Whale. I was on my kayak as it passed by.



BTW there is a link in the upper right hand corner as you are writing your post to imbed a youtube video. Typically you use the part after the = sign in the url.
