I think I would put a helmet on. You never know when you might hit a container.

TBH I don't see much similarity between that thing and a dolphin.

True, the dolphin appears to be more intelligent.

Re: Swimming with the Dolphins ?

It is cool.
I contacted the developer about a year ago...90 grand, at that time, for the biggest one (300hp)
At that time the focus was on the flying.

That is pretty cool, but I would think it could be miniaturized and slowed down to actually mimic dolphins swimming.

Swimming with the dolphins? I think that would scare the stuffings out of dolphins.

Or maybe give them a complex as they compare their "packages".

Re: Swimming with the Dolphins ?

That is insane. Maybe fun, but where was the similarity to swimming like a dolphin?

I can't help wondering, well what if he gets caught up in the tubing/gear?
