I could clearly saw their shape and the path they had took for few short secs, and when they dived deep down, the trail followed. The sea was pitch black and they were moving around in 3d surrounded by this electrical blue sparkling color. They played for few minutes and leaved. it was one surreal and magic moment.
Awesome story -- that surely must have been one of the most amazing of experiences. To me I find it an even more powerful than a good aurora display. Especially since it's so interactive and right there. No matter how many times I see it, it always startles and slightly unnerves me when I'm going through the pitch black water under a serene starry sky, and all of a sudden the water explodes with these lights. It's beautiful but also strikes some kind of primal fear, and I imagine what it must be like to be a creature in the deep ocean, content to be in darkness until a glowing nightmare predator materializes right next to you.
