Dolphin Stampede

I have seen many many dolphins during the years l lived in the Florida Keys. Dolphins are always playful and social. They would tag along with us when I worked the crab trap line or fished the gulf stream.  Moreover, whenever I visit my father’s place in Port Orange I always see a few in his back yard. He lives on the Halifax River, which is part of the Atlantic Waterway. In fact, I saw a few dolphins last week while I was at my dad’s. However, I have never seen anything like the stampede shown in this video.

This video was shot in the Sea of Cortez between Isla la Guardia and Bajia de los Angeles. While fishing we ran through a pod of several hundred dolphins. This is part of what we saw.

I had no idea this kind of thing happened. Wow! So much for fishing…. 😉
