Dolphin stampede off the Cape Town coastline

Dolphin ‘stampede’ off the coast of South Africa, captured by über-explorer Mike Horn and photographer/director Chase Jarvis

Sometimes the universe singles you out for an awesome encounter with nature. For director and photographer Chase Jarvis and South African Adventurer Mike Horn, being able to photograph and film a 'super-pod' of dolphins off the coast of Cape Town was a life-changing moment.

The great news is that they photographed and filmed it, so we can all experience the moment via YouTube. As Jarvis said on Twitter: 'Dolphin super-pod stampede – a top 10 life moment.'
