    100 nautical miles off the Pacific coast of Costa Rica, rolling and pitching in the long open ocean swell, we had arrived. A dolphin superpod, a few thousand strong was what brought us here. We were equipped with an electric underwater propeller system, that allowed us to mimick their effortless playful behaviour and they LOVED IT! In crystal clear waters we were surrounded by no less then a couple hundred at any given time, each one taking its turn to come play with the hybrid “dol-man”

    This is awesome. I feel like I am there in the water. I agree with Your Shot photographer Rose Ungvari who commented "What an incredible experience this must have been to be surrounded by, swimming and engaging with all these dolphins! Very cool formations and I like the little bubbles you captured on the one. The lighting is so beautiful as the dolphins swim through it into the depths." I also wonder, "Was it noisy with all the whistles and sounds they make?" Very well done.
