Seems like everyone who was diving with Scuba Travel last week dived, snorkeled or saw dolphins! We are not jealous at all! Mario’s Red Sea photography week were lucky enough to dive with dolphins for over an hour. The dolphins seemed to enjoy the encounter and hung around; they even joined them on the following dive. Can’t wait to see the photos from that. Mario, however, is now in Nabucco Island – Kalimantan with Martin Edge – lucky chap!
