“Swimming with the wild dolphins was a wonderful and magical experience that touched the very core of my soul. I feel utterly privileged to have experienced these magnificent sentient beings in their own home, on their own terms and to share the mutual joy of being together in the crystal clear, warm waters off the coast of Bahamas.
The pristine waters offered an unbelievable clarity with incredible colors, ranging from crystal clear turquoise to all imaginable shades of blues: ultramarine, azure, cerulean, royal blue, sea green and even rich purples.
Holding my breath while free diving down to 30 feet to position the massive underwater camera system for the perfect shot was both enthralling and challenging. From below, the water and surface shimmered as though it was glass, reflecting the beautiful dolphins and offering a unique perspective on this underwater paradise”.
Yemaya is the Yorùbá Orisha or Goddess of the living Ocean, considered the mother of all. She is the source of all the waters, including the rivers of western Africa, especially the River Ogun. Her name is a contraction of Yey Omo Eja, which means “Mother Whose Children are the Fish.” As all life is thought to have begun in the sea, all life is held to have begun with Yemaya.
