This rare sight is incredible to witness! A dolphin pod of approximately 1000(!) dolphins swam alongside this Whale Watching boat, who were also able to experience what it is like to swim alongside these animals!
Dolphin pods rarely stampede in this manner. This was a fortuitous alignment of the size of he dolphin pod, the presence of the boat, and a judicious application of luck!
Dolphins have been swimming alongside boats for as long as there have been boats, they find it enjoyable, and if they were stressed out in any way, they would easily be able to outswim the vessel. Further, no dolphins have ever been injured by this kind of boating trip, so there is no damage to nature, while this tremendous footage is captured!
