At 4:45 in the morning. We're going on a morning trip to see whale sharks...

And this is the closest we ever were to see any whale sharks.

But the weather is perfect - not too sunny. But still no whale sharks.

Okay... Contingency plan - how about some dolphins instead? Well, okay - now we're here and awake (some of us) anyway.

And more. I was in water having a desperate grip on the ladder while the boat was moving slowly with dolphins all over - quite amazing! They look much more natural in the water than we do (not that surprising I know ;o)

More dolphins. You should hear them for yourself - so noisy.

After an hour with literally hundreds of dolphins we've had enough. It's time to go back to Alona Beach to make it to the morning nap ;o)
