Turks dolphin report; extraordinary footage of extraordinary behavior.

Hi All,
We had such a great dolphin day I barely know where to start! I think I’ll cut to the chase and tell you about swimming with the pod. https://vimeo.com/user38911674/review/146457792/fabef562f7
The video opens up with JoJo because he helps make all of this happen. You will see two dolphins swimming close the one closest is Bo she has a perfect fluke. The dolphin beside her is Raggedy Ann who has a ragged left side of her fluke. Whizzer is flying around going in-between all of us me included! JoJo as always takes a position slightly farther back. His rostrum is white on the end. Whizzer makes a lot of contact with Bo (snuggles). I only wish he would suckle with RA or Bo so I could be SURE who is the Mom. Whizzer seemed to get more rambunctious as we went. Apparently he jumped clear over me! I’m hoping a boat near by got footage. You will notice toward the end of the video he comes right at me and WHACK we collided head on! He went back to the others for a short time then came right back neither of us were any the worse for wear. At the very end as the others move off and I’m getting left behind JoJo comes by. JoJo likes me to be with the others and he likes to be behind me. Making me part of the pod until I can’t keep up.
