Hi Roy. Glad you enjoyed the dolphins with us. Now you have some great shots of Indo-Pacific bottlenose dolphins with those towering sand dunes as a backdrop. Look forward to experiencing your whales in Canada one of these days!

Totally amazing having so many dolphins swimming with the boat and being briefed by Lloyd himself on his adventures. Seeing a humpback whale was a highlight although she was shy (according to Lloyd). Amazing experience and a total must do.
