A unique dolphin trip in Egypt

MARCH 2016

Every year, we take a break from the cold of December to snorkel with the Dolphins in the Red Sea. This year we met a quite large group of Spinner Dolphins, but for some unknown reason, these guys don’t spin at all… They must be lazy!

When the Dolphins were not in the lagoon, we went diving on the reef and the night dives offer great opportunities to observe Lion Fish feeding. Filming them at High speed with the Epic camera revealed the movement of their sophisticated jaw to catch their prey.

During the trip, Matthias Zentner and myself took a Zodiac to film blue plates for a forthcoming commercial (this guy is a PRO !…)  As we jumped in the water, I saw a shape in the distance. A huge Mola mola was swimming with difficulties. His fins were missing and I could see shark bites on his body. Will he make it?
