You Won't Believe What This GoPro Camera Captured Underwater

You're going to watch this video and your jaw will drop. In fact, you'll probably think it's fake. Or CGI, at least. But nope, it's completely real. A group of guys went fishing and dropped a GoPro Hero 2 camera inside a custom-made torpedo to record the ocean underneath them. What the camera recorded was the most amazing footage of dolphins you'll ever see.

The underwater footage is just unbelievably beautiful, a pod of Pacific White-Sided dolphins—so many I couldn't even count them—started swimming with the boat, looking happy and excited and just freaking awesome, like they knew the camera was there. The guys were near Santa Cruz, California when this happened and it just shows how beautiful the ocean can be. [Vimeo via Kottke]

Not to be that guy....but....this really does look like CG. Are there any CG experts that can chime in and help out?
