This video is a must-watch.  It shows dive instructor Keller Laros (aka Manta Man) of Kona, Hawaii freeing a dolphin’s pectoral fin by removing an embedded fishing line.  It’s amazing footage, both from a naturalist standpoint and from a technical standpoint (it is taken on a night dive).

This footage was taken on Kona’s famous manta ray night dive, which I did last week with a group of family members.  We dove with Captain Nancy Sweatt and her team from Dolphin Journeys, and it couldn’t have been a more amazing, personalized experience.  More to come on this front…

In the meantime, enjoy this beautiful dolphin up close and personal.
