Avalon's Nikolas Pattantyus is a local business owner, photographer and kayaker with such a love for dolphins, he's affectionately known on the Seven Mile Island as the "Dolphin Whisperer".

Nikolas posted some amazing video of his latest close encounter with two pods of dolphins while kayaking off the coast of Avalon Monday.

I travelled south with the first group from 115th St. to 80th St. about a mile off of Stone Harbor. I then came in to the surf zone and met up with the second big group and we went from 80th to 50th St. in Avalon.

Watch the amazing video Pattantyus posted on Vimeo of these beautiful creatures, called "Transmissions from the Deep" ...
