Wild Dolphins

So the other day I had an amazing experience...Atlantic white sided dolphins in the wild where they belong. I have never seen a dolphin before,so this was extremely exciting and uplifting for me and so beautiful. These guys were the cutest things ever. And they would follow and swim with our boat.

I got a few videos of them,but unfortunately I missed out on them "porpoising". I was taking pictures of them "porpoising" and unfortunately the pictures didn't really come out and I wish I got a video instead. But either way,it was amazing and beautiful. These guys were so happy and cute.

They came over 3 times while we were on that boat. They would spend time swimming with our boat and feeding off the capelin and everything and then they would take off,only to return to our boat several minutes later. Gosh,I love these guys!

And unless you have seen dolphins in the wild,you cannot truly appreciate them. I am so against marine parks and everything...but now after actually seeing these guys,I have even stronger views of marine parks.

That's awesome I've had the opportunity to see dolphins in the wild on a few occasions as well and they are very beautiful animals.

I hope they're around when (if) I gets to go.. Are they around later in the season? Due to my insane workload I might not get to go now till after August 10th.
