Raft3r and the gang went island hopping in Bohol.
We saw one area where a lot of boats were congregated.
Raft3r: "Ano meron don? (What's going on there?)"
Boatman: "Dulpin, ser."
Raft3r: "Ah, dolphin. Let's go there."
Boatman: "Yis, ser. Dulpin. Piro hwag tayu dyan. Sa iba ko kayu dalin. (I'll take you somewhere else.)"
Raft3r and friends exchanged glances.
Where was the boatman taking us? The dolphins were right there.
After 30 minutes, we heard the engine stop. We were in the middle of this huge body of water with no one and nothing in sight.
A few seconds passed and the dolphins appeared!
They were that close to us I could practically smell them. One almost jumped over our little bangka (boat).
Before I could take out my camera, the dolphins were all gone.
Who knew this experience would be so exhilarating.
So Mr. Dulpin, thank you for our very close encounter with the dolphins. You rock!
