Dolphins in the Bosphorus, Istanbul, Turkey

For a number of years I have been traveling to many countries to give courses, including Turkey.

Often, there is a requirement to cross the Bosphorus, the water that separates the European and Asian continents and the two sides of Istanbul.

It is only a twenty minutes ferry ride from Beşitaş to Kadıköy (Besitas to Kadikoy), and it is a time to relax, reflect on what has happened and will be happening, and view the sights of various sizes of ships, ferries and boats.

Many times I have spotted dolphins breaking the surface of the Bosphorus, and it surprises me that many Istanbul people have never seen them, and many do not believe I have, so watch the video.

I have two videos here, one is on YouTube and another on my server. I understand that I some countries YouTube is banned, and thus people have not been able to see the video. Please let me know if this is the case. Thank you.
