Hello all! 

We would like to keep you informed of what we're preparing for the next event!

First of all, we'd like to announce that discussions are well advanced with our sponsors and partners for this event, with many re-confirming their support from last year and some big names evaluating our proposals. We are more than happy to consider new ones as well, so if you're interested, give us a shout!

We are currently discussing rules for the Safari Photo Fish Hunting Categories and we hope to soon give you an update about this addition to this year's Blue Dolphin event.

The website will soon be updated with further details but in the meantime, we invite you to like our facebook page and why not, if you would like to suggest anything, contact us on This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
