Any chance of seeing dolphins around AC? Porpoises? Just trying to figure out how many more waterproof cameras I should buy! klcman told me where the turtles are, now I'm wondering about dolphins....? Perhaps too much to hope to see all in one trip!

I've frequently seen them cruising off Mar De Tumbo in front of Banana Beach and Mata Rocks, early afternoons. Too far out to use that u/w camera unless you be one hell of a fast swimmer!

And off the back side of Caulker on several ocasions.

the most awesome of dolphins swam up against our boat with Pany going up to Basil Jones aka Tranquility Bay Resort!! We stopped to see the show which was breathtaking!!It was so beautiful!! 2 dolphins swan and jumped for our pleasure, but Pony says that up there they are always around, kinda like dogs with good owners...

We saw a pod of Dolfins coming back from the Lamini trip last year. Was so awesome, they stopped the boat and we sat and watched them play!

Dolphins are common here and its not that rare to actually see them while diving my guests have dove with dolphins on many occasions and i bet if you do a poll between the dive shops you will see its a regualr occurance that divers actually see them while diving.

additionally driving in and out of town we see them on the inside of the reef quite often also.

There is nothing more exhilerating than looking a wild dolphin in the eye in there world and knowing its there choice to actually choose to interact with you on there terms and in there enviroment.

This is kind of repeat post. I feel very fortunate to say that I saw dolphins while diving on my 50th birthday (11/08/05). Cant remember which location. The DM was George at Amigos Del Mar. First we saw dolphins from the boat inside the reef on the way to the dive site. I joked at that time that maybe we would see them while we were diving. There are actually 2 in this picture. You can bareley see the second just to the right of the close one.

awesome shot! Good idea Gaz to a poll between dive shops to see who has seen dolphins! Thanks for that pic and story Razorfish.

Sounds like you had a great bday. Do you know George's nickname at Amigo's? Trying to figure out who that is.

Some of our divers saw dolphins underwater a few days ago. I've often seen them.
