[Watch] Dolphin Stampede


Whale watchers,  looking to catch a few glimpses of the animals were in for a surprise when hundreds of dolphins began racing and jumping through the water during a dolphin “stampede” off the coast of Southern California — an act called porpoising –without known reason.

A video recorded by Captain Dave’s Dolphin and Whale Safari shows the pod of marine mammals speeding just off the edge of the tourism company’s vessel.

The company said its Dana Beach location sees the greatest density of dolphins per square mile than anywhere in the world and is the best place to witness “mega-pods” of dolphins, which can contain up to 10,000 in total.
