Dolphins seem to be irresistibly attracted to boats and lately are frequently found quite near the coast.  Known for their playful nature and curiosity you may find them zooming under your keel, leaping gracefully through the air, disappearing and reappearing suddenly with a triumphant splash.

 

This is what happened to us, for the second time in just a few days, this time between Recco and Sori: as you can see in the video, the distance from the shore is quite small. Arm yourself with you camera and seek out these splendid creatures, but remember, always respect their environment.
