    Edgar Hoffman


In 1995, after a series of life-altering interactions with wild dolphins in England and elsewhere, Edgar began an intensive nine-year period of spending thousands of hours in the water interacting with a wild dolphin in the Gulf of Aqaba.

The main focus of his interest is in dolphin-initiated communication with humans and the transformational effects on people of such interactions in the wild.

In 1998 Edgar started Project Delphin and personally guided hundreds of people (including many with medical conditions) through their first encounters with an interactive wild dolphin . He has closely observed the effects of interactive wild dolphins on people in the Red Sea, Ireland, England, and Greece as well as the relationship between humans and cetaceans the world over.

Edgar is currently completing a book on his experiences.


  is dedicated to giving accurate information about 'friendly' or sociable wild dolphins (and whales) around the coastal waters of Ireland - i.e., those cetaceans who from time to time choose to interact with humans.. Dolphins include Fungie the Dingle Dolphin, Dony and Dusty.
