Encountering Dolphins in the Middle of the Sea
One day, I was returning to Sorong town from a snorkeling and island tour in Raja Ampat. I and 4 Czech tourists, as well as 3 boat crews were in a speed boat moving fast in the middle of the sea. Suddenly we saw a big group of dolphins. Some of them approached the boat and swim in parallel or in the same direction with the boat. Because the tourists were so happy to sea the boat, the driver reduce the speed. Unfortunately, this caused the dolphins to move away from the boat. Based on that experience, next time when we encounter dolphins, I will tell the driver to keep steady speed and direction and not reducing the speed of the boat. By doing this, I hope that we will have longer encounter with dolphins at sea.
I used to make a painting of Two Dolphins using Derwent Watercolour Pencils and Canson paper. The artwork is now in the Netherlands.
