Huge pod of playful dolphins check us out

Last weekend while out fishing we came to a spot where a huge pod of over 50 dolphins were fishing. As soon as we got close to them they started jumping and playing in the boat wake. One of them jumped pretty high and a bit too close to the front of Xtreme. The boat was doing about 10 mph going into the wind and waves and the dolphin was in the air for so long that when he came back down he landed very very close to the boat and me. I got wet! On this day we also saw a large pod of pilot whales. The next day we saw a Blainvilles Beaked Whale which was something that none of us had done before. All fun!
