Imagine yourself drifting through crystal clear waters surrounded by walls of colorful corals. Schools of spectacular fish
in a variety of sizes and vibrant colors swimming along in perfect harmony as a sea turtle tranquilly swims past on its way
to a tasty meal. As you look up towards the sea surface a pod of dolphins seemingly 'glide' above you, one of them even
dares to approach you and with smart friendly eyes looks at you closely as if to say "Welcome to our world".
