Friendly dolphin performs backflips for divers off Bahamas coast

Underwater footage shows a playful dolphin performing a series of spectacular spins and backflips for divers off the coast of San Salvador, Bahamas.

Experienced diver Michael Aery filmed the friendly marine mammal during a dive, calling it an "encounter of a lifetime".

The dolphin first followed the diving group’s boat, prompting them to drop their anchor.
