The interaction of gas bubbles with a vortex is investigated experimentally to clarify the role of the initial bubble position on its trajectory around the tip vortex shed from a large hydrofoil. The experiments performed with 4-6mm bubbles show that the bubbles can undergo no capture, quick capture into the tip vortex or slow capture with a spiral trajectory around the vortex.
