My Wild and Crazy Dolphin Sighting Trip in Bali

"The happiness of the bee and the dolphin is to exist. For man it is to know that and to wonder at it."

While in Bali, Indonesia in March 2013 I traveled from the southern part of the island to the northern section to a town named Lovina for a dolphin sighting tour.  I LOVE dolphins...so sounds great right?  Well, it was great and it was worth it AFTER I got up at 3:00 AM.  I'm NOT a morning person so that was literally painful for me!  I am also not the type of person who scares easily, BUT the 2 hour taxi ride in the dark through very curvy and hilly back roads had me sitting on the edge of my seat!  As you can see I did get to see dolphins - LOTS of them!  Getting photos of them was not easy though - even with a super fast shutter speed!  It was also dark and the boat you see in the photos is the one I rode in.  It was going very fast in the wavy water and was a very bumpy ride.  In the end it was worth it and I would do it again!  I also got to see an incredible sunrise which is highly unusual for me!  The photos on this post are some of my most popular on Panoramio.  Many web sites have displayed these photos which is fine and I actually am very flattered when my photos are shared as long as I'm given credit and they link back to me.  In case you want to view any of my other photos here is the link:

 "Humans think they are smarter than dolphins because we build cars and buildings and start wars etc…and all that dolphins do is swim in the water, eat fish and play around. Dolphins believe that they are smarter for exactly the same reasons."
