Craig was on a liveaboard dive trip in the Bahamas and had been scouting for dolphins for hours with no luck. A pod finally came into view and the divers were all very excited to jump in the water. The Captain shouted, “Dive! Dive! Dive!” and everyone jumped in…except Craig. There were so many divers rushing to hit the water, Craig opted to hang back for a couple of extra minutes. When he finally jumped in, he stayed near the surface to see where the pod would direct itself, which was in the exact opposite direction of the large group of divers…and directly toward Craig. In an instant they jumped in tandem out of the water and it registered to Craig that they would be coming back down in a matter of seconds. At that moment, he sank beneath the surface a few feet and got this unique shot as they broke the surface. The combination of Atlantic Bottlenose and Spotted dolphins is unique as the two species are not commonly known to swim together.
