Re: E-PL3 underwater : help! what am i doing wrong?

+1 on the "Closer" advise. If you want sharp pictures underwater of large animals like dolphins get the least of distance possible between your subject and the camera and preferably an extreme wide lens (less than 12mm). Also get in a position that the sun is behind you and place yourself in position to have the dolphins passing in front of you. Not an easy job and that's why shots like these are not too common. You need to be fast, patient and in shape, besides having a fast shooting camera with excellent auto focus. m43 still have to catch up to DSLR in these situations. The more experienced dolphin photographers instead of chasing them will entice them with games of their interest. You get better pics when you are a "dolphin whisperer".

For what you have in camera/lens and the experience in shooting these subjects, I would be happy with what you captured.
