Very cool. Anxious for some more photos/videos.
Wrote a note said, 'back in a minute'. Bought a boat and I sailed off in it.

Oh that's funny. We only see them strumming their cart along shore, not on the water.

Nice to see someone else dance with the dolphins Gwoz.

If they are anything like ours ..I find the best thing to do is to get a big displacement speed wake going behind your boat.. which seems to attract them over and they will then ride in the bow wave 8-)
