Thanks to a steady camera hand (this means sarcastic), I was able to get some shots (see video below).
While pictures are cool, I hoped for more than just that, I wanted to get in and swim with them. But first, that required a thorough analysis of the pod and the hope that the dolphins would want to interact. After about 10 more minutes, the crew gave the okay to get in the water. About 10 of us decided to give it a shot, one-by-one, "slipping and diving" into the water as they say, with snorkels and fins.
