Photo's are Here :-)

These are Just a few of the pictures, no doubt Humper will post some more. Unfortunately the quality is not the best as we only got movie footage so the pictures are all screen captures from the movies.
The movies are all in quicktime format at the mo but I am going to edit and convert so will post when done.
Have to say ... It was an Awsome Experience!!

Wow

Absolutely awesome,
I live in north wales and use my boat around Anglesea and I have never seen them like that before.Just come back from the annual jolly boys week away in Newquay West Wales on the motorbikes,where the dolphins come right up to the shore but I have never seen anything like that before.
Regards
Howy

That's incredible!

Had to turn the sound off though-was she trying to communicate with bats?

Not sure ... thought it was Dolphin language .... think they got a little excited ....lol Footage was taken from Humpers boat ... and the Dolphin Whisperer (or screamer ) was His Daughter

I have been going to Anglesey for 35 years since I was a kid and never seen anything like it before ... come to think of it ... seen dolphins all over the world and never seen anything like that .... not even at Sea World !!
