Re: Divers Rescue Dolphin After It 'Asks' For Help

Very nice. They are probably the smarter animal, because they don't destroy their house like we do.

Re: Divers Rescue Dolphin After It 'Asks' For Help

This is evry cool. Saw a few days ago.

Once, we were diving in Hordourous in an area where a small pod comes by every day at the same time right in front of our small hotel on Guanaha. They never approached any divers because the dominent male would keep them away. The day my wife and I dove there the alpha male was not present and the other two dolphins came right up to us and wanted to play. They swam all around us giving us a beautiful show of aquabatics and chirping.

Re: Divers Rescue Dolphin After It 'Asks' For Help

The same type of thing happened to us last June on the Cocos islands off of Costa Rica. It was a 10 ft manta wrapped up in long line. She let the line be cut free and returned to play for 10 minutes. Its on You tube somewhere. I still get goose bumps when I think about it.
