They played with us for several days and there was loads of em at least 6. It's very dificult to drive a straight line when your busy being entranced by Dolphins!

Likewise my photgraphic skills didn;t shine!
I am lucky enough to live near Inverness where the same group of dolphins come and feed most days in the summer - gallery of photos here if you're interested

I actually got my rib partly to do dolphin sightseeing especially when friends are up. Still to take a really good photo from a boat, most of my photos are taken from land where it is much easier to guess where they'll jump next. On a boat, they could be anywhere within 360 degrees, so very hard to shoot.
