Shoreline Dolphin Pod
updated: Jan 08, 2014, 8:51 AM

By Edhat Subscriber

Did anyone else see the huge group of dolphins yesterday? I looked out and thought there was a cloud shadow on the water, then realized it seemed to be moving west. I took my binoculars out with me to Shoreline Park and saw them leaping and cavorting along. There must have been hundreds of them. Then they changed direction and went back east. A small plane flew over and made a couple of passes (hope they got photos and share them.) And there was an SUP paddler right in the thick of them, that must have been awesome. Sure wish I could have gotten photos.

334 - Highly doubtful they were porpoises. Most likely a big pod of bottlenose dolphins.

They were with me the whole time. I will testify to this in court.

@338: yes, it was so cool; if you had seen them you would think so too.
389: it was a HUGE pod!
And the Pieface (fishing boat) was out there with them.

It is called a superpod, and yes, it is a phenomenal thing to see! Must have been a big food source out there too! Maybe time for grunion or some other small baitfish to be traveling through.............
