Default Dolphins in the Gulf

I meant to post this a few weeks ago when it happened. I have been diving for 22 years and have never even seen a porpoise. We were seeing some around the surface but never expected to experience what followed. They were swimming all around and beside us. Turns out, there was a shark around. They kind of "escorted" us down and ran the shark off. It was one of my coolest dive experiences.

Here is a picture of the shark under me as I'm giving my buddy the "OK" sign...

Awesome. Looks like they were trying to get you to play.

They did act like they wanted me to play. They were just a little too fast for me!

That's awesome. It was over 20 years before I saw the only one I've seen on a dive. At least it was after the invention of the gopro and we both got it on video!

The dolphin had a GoPro? Those things are everywhere now.

Not the way that was intended, but funny none the less.
Simple minds.
