    Went to Catalina/Dolphine

    Hey Guys,

    Today I went with a friend to Catalina island. I was driving my 04 Yamaha FX HO Cruiser and he was driving his Seadoo 04.

    He goes to this island every Saturday. We got to follow along with dolphins and pilot whales! Today's video is not on his site yet but check out this video

    Hope you guys enjoy it,
    Reza

    Mike,

    First of all we would never even attempt to hit them but I tell you they are such intelligent animals and very playful! Tim, my friend, got to touch the back of a bottle nose dolphin and she allowed it! Then they were circling around us and jumping. It is an awesome trip! Weather permits, we do it every Saturday! Round trip is 76-82 miles depending how much off track we go to play

    I'm glad you enjoy it! It is awesome!

    Hi Guys,

    It was my friend's Camera! He is using a small Canon which is not that expensive, these days about $200, I will find out the model, I think it was sd-10 ?! not sure! but the water proof cage that camera goes in, was very expensive, I think he said about $300-$400, all the buttons are functional! He bought the stuff 3-4 years ago, I am sure these days everything is cheaper!

    I also have an Olympus 790 that is supposedly water proof that I have gotten wet with no issues but still don't trust to put it under the water like he does! I am going to upload some of my videos soon. I will post a link here! check out his other videos, there are some better ones that dolphins jump right in front of him and ...

    It is an awesome ride! I have so many sponsorships in Model Airplane side but ever since I have been doing this, I have not flown my planes and have not done any shows! I fly giant scale aerobatic planes, again as hobby!
