This was a sight that was incredible, given that it was not something that we were expecting to see. You see dolphins in movies, and see them doing amazing stuff in videos from places such as water parks; but seeing them in the wild is something else. Dolphins are mammals, and are supposed to be one of the most intelligent species in the wild; it was incredible seeing them like this. We were in a ship that was taking us a protected marine sanctuary, the site of some great coral reefs and the marine animals that are present in such places. Now, the coral reefs was where we were going to do snorkeling and catch a view of some great fish, but this was a bonus in between. During the route, we suddenly a number of similar ships that were stopped in the route, and seemed to be circling around. Out ship captain informed us that the ships had caught sight of a small pod of dolphins, and had stopped. We were eager to get there, and once there, we could see a small number of dolphins near the water surface, and we stayed there for some time till the dolphins finally went under the water surface and left.
