Captain Chris Jones runs a fishing charter on the shore of Florida. The man loves his life because he managed to turn his fishing passion into his job. However, some days are more incredible than others because the Captain never knows what kind of underwater beast he might catch. Although, today we are going to show you how he managed to save a stranded dolphin during one of his fishing trips.
20. FLORIDA BAY
Captain Chris Jones goes fishing on the Florida Bay. This is a great place for catching fish because the weather is always sunny and the waters are packed with all types of fish that make it a challenge for the Captain to catch them all.
19. GETTING A NICE TAN
One of the best things about having a fishing boat and living in Florida is that you can always simply get a nice tan if you don’t feel like fishing. This is what Captain Chris Jones was planning to do one day with his friend, but his plan to relax didn’t exactly work out…
18. DANGEROUS WATERS
Even though the waters of Florida Bay are perfect for fishing, this doesn’t mean that they are safe. Chris Jones says that you never know what kind of underwater beast might be next to the boat and he rarely jumps into the water because of this.
17. AWESOME CATCHES
Even though swimming in Florida Bay might be dangerous, fishing there is excellent because of all the incredible fishes that fishermen can catch. Just look at the picture above to get an idea of what Captain Chris Jones does every day.
Another cool thing about Florida Bay is that the waters are filled with dolphins. These adorable creatures love to interact with humans and they make the man’s days better every time they come to greet him. However, this was about to change…
15. DOLPHINS GET STRANDED
The man says that dolphins can sometimes overextend while trying to catch fish and they end up stranded. The worst thing about this is that you don’t really have any way of getting the dolphin back into the deep waters and you need to wait for special help to arrive. One day, this happened…
14. UNEXPECTED TURN OF EVENTS
As Captain Chris Jones was leaving the shore on his boat, he saw that a poor dolphin was stranded and that it couldn’t move. The man was planning to relax, but he couldn’t bear the thought of leaving the dolphin alone.
13. CALLING FOR HELP
Captain Chris Jones didn’t waste any time and he called for help. Unfortunately, the help was far away and they said that it will take them about two hours to get to Florida Bay. Something had to be done… fast!
12. HELPING OUT
Seeing how special help is so far away, Captain Chris Jones had no other option than to try and keep the dolphin alive by pouring buckets of water over it. Do you think this plan worked out?
11. FEELING BETTER
One hour after Chris started pouring buckets of water on the dolphin, the friendly fish started feeling better. However, the sun was starting to burn his skin and the man needed to figure out a way to get him back into the water.
10. HELP IS CLOSE
Two hours passed and special help finally arrived! Chris Jones was mad that it took them so long, but he was happy that they finally came. Will they manage to save the poor animal?
9. NOT GIVING UP
We have to give praise to the Captain for never giving up on the stranded dolphins. There aren’t that many people who would put such an effort to keeping a dolphin alive for two hours and this makes the Captain special. When the National Park Service arrived…
8. NATIONAL PARK SERVICE
The National Park Service arrived with a special raft where they could place the dolphin so that they can take him out of the shallow water. The tricky part about doing this is that the dolphin is really heavy and Captain Chris Jones was already tired from carrying so many buckets of water, but the man never gave up.
7. TEAM EFFORT
Everyone who was close to the dolphin started lifting at the same time and they did it! The dolphin was sitting on the special raft and he was ready to go back to his home.
6. GOING HOME
The dolphin dove underwater as soon as he fell off the special raft. Captain Chris Jones accomplished his mission and the dolphin is now going to live a long and happy life thanks to him.
5. DOLPHIN FAMILY
Captain Chris Jones says that he hopes the dolphin’s family waited for him to come back and that they didn’t swim away after he got stranded.
4. GOOD DEEDS
Captain Chris Jones did the right thing by putting it all on the line to help a stranded dolphin and we have to applaud him for that. Most people would’ve just called the special services and left, but not Captain Chris Jones.
3. VALUABLE LESSON
We think it’s safe to say that the dolphin has learned a valuable lesson and that he will never swim close to shore again.
2. SAYING GOODBYE
When asked how he felt about the way the dolphin left, Captain Chris Jones said that he didn’t need to hear a goodbye to know that the dolphin is thankful for saving his life.
1. FISHING ADVENTURE
Whoever knew that fishing trips can prove to be such awesome adventures? Luckily, the dolphin’s story ended with a happy ending because Captain Chris Jones was there for him.
