This video is pretty amazing, although it is from 2013, I hadn’t seen this before and just had to share. While diving off the Hawaii Coast, a bottlenose dolphin approaches diver, Keller Laros. Laros is an experienced professional scuba diver and Manta Ray researcher. Laros was taking a group of snorkelers on a manta-ray dive experience.
