Jan PloegLong-time swimmer with Dusty in Co. Clare, Ireland.  Video footage and pictures of Dusty over a 7 year period. Jan moved in 2001 from a comfortable farm in Holland to live in a heap of rocks by the beach in Fanore!

Jan is a devotee of the monofin and has also created a 'WaterWing' to enable him to emulate even more closely the movements of a dolphin in the water..

In his own words: "With a monofin on both your feet you can generate a drive that easily pushes you halfway out of the water and with a WaterWing you can almost equal the maneuverability of a dolphin."

Go to his website to read his "Dolphin Address" which is his highly unique take on dolphins, including some humorous stories on the build up to the "Irishdolphins International conference in support of interactive dolphins".
Website 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.
