I reckon I've had dolphins warn me of sharks.
George Greenough also has spoken of it.

The myth is that when there are dolphins around there are no sharks.
Nearby Dolphins being skittish and darting about, as opposed to milling around as they usually do, is a good indicator to paddle in.
Yep. They know when a shark wants a feed for sure.

This pic of the Swansea FAD gives you some idea of just how hard the EAC runs when it's in full swing in January and february.
17 Kms out off Swansea in 100 metres of water, the FAD is anchored to the bottom. It stands about 2 metres out of the water normally.
Closer to shore the current isn't even noticeable.

Fcuk that's a lot of current. Five knots?

in about 89-90 a guy got attacked at half tide at evans. I remember him saying dolphins were going nuts just before hand, then he got blasted from nowhere.

The day before the Kiwi bloke got taken at Cactus in 2000, the local primary school was have a day out at the beach either the day before or a couple of days before, my understanding it was just west of caves. The talk around the town was about what a magical day they had with a pack of dolphins that came in and played with the kids all day, could be a coincidence but the people there say looking back at it it seemed like the dolphins were creating a barrier. Just a story I have heard a few times from a couple of different local sources, we all know how stories grow.

I had the dolphins circling around me at dusk at north wall and it felt like they were creating a barrier. Next morning that blonde kid got bit on the leg.

My wife gets up early to exercise. She puts the tele on while she does whatever it is that she does.
At 5:30 and 6 there are two Flipper shows back to back.
She's really getting into it. Loves the innocent ridiculousness.
And she does a fantastic flipper imitation.

You could be serious if you're going to ask that sort of thing black duck, it's not something to be flippant about
we are the angry mob
We read the papers everyday
We like who we like, we hate who we hate
But we're also easily swayed

No but I'm afraid if Flipper were here right now, that slimy cetacean would cuckold my landlubbin arse.
Mrs. Offshore's porpoise impressions are a little too heartfelt now that I think about it.
