After returning from my last tour in Iraq, my girlfriends brother, her dad, and his best friend took me out sailing in the channel off of Santa Barbara.

We heard this strange wave-like sound and after seeing a few hundred dolphins at the front of the pack, we turned the sailboat around, and ran up the jib to try and get back out to them. What we didn't know, was that it was the leaders of a giant pod, which appeared to be herding/hunting fish. They set up a moving coral of sorts, and then the herders came through pushing the school ahead of them.

My favorite moment is 0:37, which reminds me of Douglas Adams' Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Thanks for the fish!
