Dolphins are Guardian Angels

I admired the parrot fish shoal dashing past, then wham! The impact dislodged my facemask; my flippers were clamped in the teeth of a shark. I struggled my feet free, readjusted my mask and mouthpiece, and swam to a coral buttress. I watched John climb into the boat ten metres above.
The excited bull shark circled and raced towards me. I was trapped.
I heard a screech of whistles and clicks, and a dolphin struck the shark’s underbelly. The pod harassed and chased the menace away.
My saviours escorted me to the surface, and to the safety of the boat.

  9. Oh I love this. I do believe Dolphins are that clever. As guardian angels? I so believe this could be true.

  10. That’s what the ocean needs – less sharks, more dolphins. I was surprised to read a few weeks back that sharks aren’t apex creatures. Killer whales like eating their fatty livers.

  12. Dear James,

    Very well done. You had me on the edge of my seat. Glad his guardian angels swooped in to help.

    Shalom,
