No, not at all unlikely. On the contrary, I have spent almost all my life in and around the sea and it is well known that dolphins
can and do sometimes actively seek close proximity to humans. I have been on my Macski a number of times and they have swum close to me whilst I was waiting for a wave.
I have always felt very privileged when they have swum near me. The incident I referred to was an exceptional privilege because, although it was a very brief interaction, it was a huge bottle-nose dolphin (because of its size I suspect a male), and it was being deliberately playful with me.
I can't wait for us to get on with our adventure and see dolphins again (amongst other sea creatures). I also want my wife to experience close proximity to dolphins as they play at the bow of the boat.
